My wife's 02 has developed a problem. I'll see how well I can describe it. When the coolant temperature is low the car drives well. As it warms up, (by using the app Torque on my phone, the critical temperature is about 140deg F) it starts loosing power. The engine rev's but the power doesn't get to the wheels. The warmer it gets the worse the issue. It is like the transmission is slipping. Maybe the torque converter? I've checked the fluid level, which wasn't much fun, and it is full. It's isn't throwing any codes. Since pulling the transmission is again not a fun thing, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of how to diagnois this problem? thanks.

Ok, this morning I noticed that inspite of the deep throaty sound the car makes as I try to accelerate, the engine rpm is not going up much. I'm not able to get it above 2500. So I don't think that it is the transmission. I think it is a clogged converter.
