Torque Converter Clutch System Stuck in Off Position.

Failed ON—engine runs rough/vehicle shudder, engine stalls in DRIVE at
low idle speeds (2nd, 3rd, or 4th gear).
Failed OFF—torque converter never engages.

Basically it means that your torque converter is not locking up. You should experience a loss in gas mileage until you can fix it. You shoudl put in new fluid and filter when you are doing this. I doubt it hurts the car to drive it if it fails off. Service manual should tell you how to fix it, but off hand it sounds like something you can do yourself.
