Question about 1999 Plymouth Voyager

Transmission torque converter

My chrysler voyager makes a rough noise on ignition which runs for a few minutes and then disappears. My mechanic thinks its a faulty torque converter but I dont see how. The engines engages all the gears with no problem and  as I said the noise goes away after some time. Do I need to replace the torque converter?

    I have a 2006 Subaru Outback. Mechanic thinks my Torque Converter needs replacing---it seems to "rumble" at mid-speeds. His suggestion was to have it replaced when it's time to change the timing belt, etc. because they have to drop the engine to do these items so do them all at once. Your thoughts?

I would check the torque converter bolts to make sure they haven't backed out, may possibly be a cracked flex plate also

Torque converter making noise

drop off the cover under the torque converter and inspect the flex plate that the converter is bolted to. look for cracks in the plate around the bolts . undo the bolts and move the torque converter back towards the gear box and look for cracks around the flywheel bolts.. If all ok then do everything up and have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal mechanical failure. Have this done at an accredited auto transmission shop ( not the local mechanic) and as him what the results are and the possible solution. Remember to ask how much to fix the problem parts before you accept that it needs a new box

2003 chrysler voyager stalling with 740 code

P0740 TCC Lock up Malfunction, the 740 says specifically that the clutch that locks up the input and output turbines of the torque converter is apparently not doing its job to perfection. This is a energy conserving feature that goes into effect above 45 mph. It may be simply electical activation issue or it could be a true slipping clutch. I would take it to a reputable independent transmission shop and have them check out which possibility is the cause. good-day !

Can I put a 98 Plymouth voyager transmission into a 2000 Plymouth voyager

The books say no. If all the electrical connections are the same, go for it but look at them closely. Also you will want to use the flexplate (flywheel) from the donor vehicle. It was right around 98 or 99 that Chrysler changed the bolt pattern on the torque converter. Chrysler motors are balanced by the torque converter, and this means the four converter bolt holes are not evenly spaced, and must be in the correct alignment to get all four bolts installed. one of the holes in the flywheel has flat sides. If you get that bolt in, and any other bolt in, the other two will go in. if you put that one in and the next one won't go, you need to remove that bolt and rotate the converter to the next hole. do yourself a favor and turn the converter the same way each time to avoid trying positions already tried.

Thumping in Transmision

Could easily be torque converter internal broken part. This is a common problem. I would check the transmission oil filter and the pan to see if there are any metal filings anywhere. If so, you need new trans and torque converter. Rick
