Default How do you no if your torque converter is bad. ?

I have a 1997 Honda Accord and replaced the trans 6 months ago and it is slipping. I can drive it when it's been sitting for a hour or two but it won't change gears after it get hot.

There is a pump inside the torque converter that pumps the fluid to the trans and makes it work. If the pump gets hot and stopped working yes it will not shift.But the question here is this. If the trans was rebuilt, why didn't they change the converter. Check with the place the rebuilt it and find out. A trans rebuild includes changing the converter.
