The torque converter is a good sized round object bolted to the flywheel inside the bell housing.

I drive a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 Magnum 360 and i have just recently had the tourque converter replaced in it. Last night as i was leaving my girlfriends house i went to back up and when backing up i had...

When a converter fails, many times it will generate fine metal debris that can travel through the transmission, carried by the fluid. When that happens, it can get into seals and cause wear of both the seal and the seal surface on the shaft or drum. It can also get into the pump, valve body and control solenoids. All those items can result in either low pressure condition or pressure mis-application causing slipping or improper gear changes. That is the primary reason that when either the transmission or converter fails, both are generally replaced. (during a trans failure it works the other way and the converter stores debris and if not replaced, it will contaminate the new trans when put back in service). Bottom line is that you need to have at least the valve body cleaned out but more likely you need the unit rebuilt. possible you can have the new converter flushed but best would be to replace it again.

When changing a pump rotor, tourque converter, gasket and filter on the transmisson, would you have to take apart the transmission to get to any of them?

There is nothing called a pump rotor in this transmission pump.It has a gear type pump with and inner and outer gear.You would need to remove the pump from the front of transmission to perform this repair(suspicious that it would need pump gears and not have major internal transmission damage, never seen that in 25 years of rebuilding)but would not have to completely disassemble transmission.The filter can replaced by removing pan on bottom of transmission and the torque converter fits into the pump at the front of transmission.You would need to remove transmission from the car to install torque converter.Are you trying to fix a problem or understand a repair that has already been preformed?Let me know if I can help.Good Luck!

Having trouble replacing my tourque converter on my E40D trans mission for my 1991 f250. its got the 7.5 engine.i have purchase a new converter but i am having some trouble with the last half inch of...

This is very common. Assuming you're certain that you have the correct replacement converter. You just have to be very patient and keep slowly rotating the converter while wiggling it, and gently pushing it in. The hub on the converter is keyed to interlock with the fluid pump in the transmission, and has to be aligned just right to engage and slide all the way in.

Don't make the mistake I did ONCE and rush not being certain that it is fully engaged. I had to have the transmission rebuilt because of the damage that was done just starting the engine one time.

Narrowing it down.

The torque converter slips more than normal only if the oil level is really low - check that. Otherwise the problem is clearly with the pressure plates - and those can be replaced, you don't need to replace the entire tranny for that.

I need a place to show how to replace the tranny.

Auto or manuel ?
I will assume auto - by majority..
You mean doing it yourself ??
Just a few tings to consider..
If you have experience - thats cool..
However - replacing a auto trans is a pretty involved job..
When the new trani goes in - the tourque converter has to be turned just right..
It can be a very tricky job..
You may want to consider doing it with someone that knows how with experience..

Hope this helps !!
