The minivan (18 years old, 90,000mi) can't get up to speed. As the van warms up, it gets worse.

The van would rev to about 4,000rpm and go maybe 50-60mph at most, and it got worse after about 20-30min. of driving. At its worst, the van can't get going on a uphill start. If I let the van cools down, it will drive a little again. I feel like the torque converter is slipping. Can you think of what is wrong? I changed the computer that controls the transmission and that didn't help.

Also, the torque converter was replaced back in 1998 [at]50,000mi.

Just trying pick the brains here and thank you very much!

Thank you very much for the reply.

Fluid level is good and the color is nice and pink. Although the fluid is very old (up to 10 years) as the van doesn't get driven much ( only 30,000mi in the last 12 years)... It's a 95 car so my OBDII code scanner is useless for it... The fuel level of the van now is at the last tick mark. However, I almost always refuel before the fuel warning light comes on.

Engine and Transmission: 3.0L V6 with 4 speed Auto

[at]ImperialCrown. There are no warning lights on. The tach goes up to 4000rpm which is as far as I pushed the engine as I don't want to potentially do more damage.
