90 Grand Am 2.5L Tranny still pulling when stopping.

This car has been sitting for 2 years due to a bad coil and leaking front main seal.
I fixed the coil and seal and it runs and shifts fine, but when I test drove it on the interstate it seemed like the converter stayed locked and the engine stalled when I came to a stop (like stopping in a car with a manual transmission without pushing the clutch in). I cranked it up and shifted to 'D' and the motor stalled, several times. Then I cranked the motor and shifted to reverse and the motor stayed running so I shifted to 'D' and it returned to normal operation (although now it doesn't feel like the converter is locking at highway speed.
What to do now?
Thanks,
Mike
