Default why dose my car do this??? lexus sc400?

i turn my car on and it has a weird idling sound like something its rattling around inside you can only hear the noise from inside my car... its an automatic....i can drive my car for about 30 sec to a min. but once it gets to normal temperature it wont shift anymore.....when the motor and tranny are still cold, warming up, i can drive the car up and down the street and it shifts perfectly super fast really nice but once its warm it wont move....
i was told it seems like a slipping clutch but for an automatic that would be a bad torque converter. the guy i bought it from said he blew the transmission. sold he sold it to me for really cheap. it had a bit of miles on it so i was going to replace the whole motor and tranny together but there seems to be nothing wrong with either one....the motor sounds great and it shifts perfectly so im left with a big Puzzle dose anyone know or have any idea what it could be...
i would really like to know some opinions
respond here or email me
oh ya its a 93 sc400 lexus
