Anybody have any ideas on what I can do next to solve this problem?

Iwould suspect something wrong in the pump - stator area that is cross leaking oil to lock up the clutch in the converter.

Perhaps a stuck lock up valve?

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
