: Torque Converter? Shifting to 5th issue

So i've noticed, mostly today, that when the car is shifting into fifth while under light load, it seems the torque converter locks up and the starts slipping again. It will be a somewhat hard shfit, and the RPM's will drop and then rise up. And then after easing off the throttle a little bit after a bit more acceleration it will lock again. I do not notice it if I'm getting on it just slightly quicker. I don't stick my foot in it that hard most of the time, as my commute doesn't really call for it. Is this a similar issue to the TSB that I have read about on here? Or am I staring down a different issue?

Thanks guys,
matt

I got all excited when I saw this up at the top ha ha :)

I used to have a 92 900 Turbo Convertible, and an 87 SPG. Yours manual or automatic? I still miss it sometimes.
