Sounds like the torque converter clutch (TCC) in the transmission is stuck on. Best to have a reputable transmission shop have a look at it. HTH. -Jim

In all the years my family was in the business the first question we asked is what gas are you putting in your car. Use a brand name Premium a few times (Amoco , Sunoco ) and see how that works..
