the torque converter splines have just failed. there is no "reason" for it to happen.

I see that happen occasionally (about once every 2 years or so) to any of a bunch of different cars with either a 20 or 40 series transaxle (you have the 40 series).

just get the converter rebuilt (shouldnt be more than 200 bucks) and reinstall it. DONE!
