Pump broke, input shaft, converter...

I would probably bet on the pump or a fluid pickup issue.

sounds like maybe the pump isn't moving fluid. pretty easy to check. cna't remember which is pressure line I think it's the top line on the radiator. take it off put it in a jug and see if it pumps fluid. Calling all th400 guru's!!! My experience is limited here........throw this guy a bone. Brian

a common thing with t-400 is the filter can clog from debris after yrs of use. The trans stops working.

As the trans sits the fluid drains out the filter and the trans will operate for a few miles then stop.

I have also seen worn pumps drop off line to zero pressure like an air bubble develops inside them. Rev the engine a good whack on the throttle and pressure jumps back online.
