    Can a worn out torque converter cause a power loss?
    You know, steal power from the engine?
    I have heard that water sometimes finds it's way into the torque converter and that can tear it up, true?

    Go with it...

    If the torque converter is worn, it will probably slip. A lot of slip will reduce power at the wheels. The torque converter is always filled with trans fluid. If your transfluid is water, then water is in your torque converter.
