While driving and after coming to a complete stop the automatic transmission would not change gears. W/o warning no previous car problems, regular vehicle check-ups and the transmission goes out. I have been told by a transmission repair shop that it is the converter. After calling that shop and a Ford dealership they all have had stories about this piece going out in the transmission and basically indicated that I need a new transmission or a rebuilt one. Keep in mind this is a 2005 Mercury Sable.
