Transmission has never slipped. It drinks no transmission fluid. Was riding maybe forty mph and transmission completely stopped pulling. Absolutely no warning. Linkage functions properly. It is going in gear just will not pull.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good morning.

The most likely cause for this is the toque converter. It fails internally. I had two Windstars and both had the same issue with the same result.

Verify fluid level is good.

If the transmission filter is clogged it will cause this as well.
