It's probably the transmission, either the valve body or the clutch pack. Either way, it means a rebuild of the transmission.

not sure how indepth you want this but here goes the short version first you remove the transmission from the van then you remove the tourque converter from the transmission and then you have a shaft sticking out that the tourque converter was on and where the shaft enters the transmission the seal is there! remove it and install the new one and re install in reverse off the removal process EMEMBER WHEN YOU REINSTALL THE CONVERTER TO LUBRICATE THE OUT SIDE OF THE PART THAT SLIDES IN TO THE SEAL AND MAKE SURE AS YOU PUSH THE CONVERTER BACK IT CLICKS 3 TIMES NOT JUST 2 OR YOU'LL BUST YOUR PUMP THEN YOU GOT BIG PROBLEMS!

If the transmission has a drain plug in the pan, remove the plug, allow to drain for at least 1/2 hour, so that the torque converter will drain, replace the plug, add fluid, run engine, put transmission in drive, neutral, reverse, neutral, drive, repeat for about 5 minutes, check fluid level, top off if needed, repeat running in drive, neutral, reverse. If the transmission does not have a drain, you have to drop the pan, which is best done by a transmission shop.

Should you change the torque converter with the transmission?

I would highly recomend you to replace the converter at the same time. I would also thoughly flush out the transmission oil cooler and lines.

It would greatly reduce the life expectency.

What could happen with a loose torque converter?

If the torque converter is loose it can do alot of damage to the transmission too.

If it is running too rough you may have to change it all out. Check the bolts first to make sure everything is tight. If it is then you'll probably need new trany and torque converter.

How do you change Torque converter?

major job for the inexperienced you must first remove the transmission then you remove torque converter from flex plate. flex plate is equivalent to a fly wheel in a standard gear box to replace torque converter, is another job in itself as it must be installed loosely until transmission is installed , then properly filled with transmission fluid then tightened properly if not sure about all this, it is likely to not work or fail going down the road WAIT!, ..unbolt the torque converter from the flex plate and remove with the transmission! If you pull the transmission separately, you risk damaging the pump in the transmission! Same applies going back in, the torque converter needs to be meshed into the front pump of the transmission before putting into the car. Then once the transmission is bolted to the engine, THEN you bolt the torque converter to the flex plate. If you do as described in the first answer, you will very likely end up replacing the entire transmission! This job requires experience and special tools, not for the beginner.
