SOURCE: Where is the Torque Converter clutch solenoid

Actually, the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is located within the transmission housing that is easily accessible through the transmission oil pan. The TCC solenoid may vary in location dependent upon manufacture but generally it is located as aforementioned. It can cause your vehicle to stall if stuck open or close because it controls loads to the engine via your torque converter which is located between the vehicle's engine and transmission. Also, make certain that you attempt to change the transmission fluid and filter before changing the TCC solenoid because that may be your underlying issue. If not, simply reuse your fresh oil and change the TCC soleniod.

SOURCE: how do i know if its my tcc solenoid and not the

If the solenoid is stuck so the torque converter remains locked, the transmission will not be able to shift down and the engine may stall when you slow down from highway speed. This seems to be the most common problem with this part, and it shows up primarily in prolonged high-temperature running.

If you can get the vehicle into reverse with a locked torque converter, you may have to maintain a minimum speed to keep from stalling the engine - not a safe situation.

My experience with hanging TCC solenoids is that they usually release the clutch if they are allowed to cool for a few minutes, if they don't release when the engine stalls.

If the TCC is not locking the torque converter, there will be no difference in high-speed performance when you disconnect the TCC solenoid. If the TCC is working to this extent, disconnecting it will cause a lag in acceleration and loss of gas mileage in high gear. Unfortunately, this is not a completely definitive test; it does not rule out a malfunction in the torque converter clutch mechanism.

How to install a torque converter in a 2000 Ford ranger 2.5 liter engine

The only secret caution...
(besides not dropping the whole greasy mess on your head)...

To make sure the torque converter is fully and properly seated (FULLY) inside the front pump gear... and ABSOLUTELY must stay seated while your are bouncing and wiggling everything around to get that TRANNY fully bolted to the engine...

Bolt the starter drive gear to the torque converter last...

and yes a big ugly felt marker to help with that final alignment would be SMART.

(oh yeah... know ALL your torque specs).

Good luck.

Torque converter clutch stuck on

The torque converter clutch solenoid is controlled by the TCM so run the fault codes first/. If you take the solenoid out of the system there is every possibility that the vehicle will not move and if it does the economy will be crap. Best fix the thing properly to start with.

Sounds like the torque converter clutch is not dis-engaging. (It locks up the torque converter at highway speeds for fuel efficiency.) Try unplugging the connection at the transmission, and plugging it back in. If no help, have a shop check out the torque converter clutch operation.

Location of tcc fuse

Usually te TCC is tied in with the circuit with the other solenoids..So if it was the fuse you would lose all the other solenoids as well..You would know that because the transmission would not be able to drive..If you have a torque converter code,,then its most likely you have to replace the torque converter...

97 dodge intrepid engine light comes on. Code reads tork cellinoid and transmission circuit problem. The car does not jump around like it is having transmission issues. What do I do?

The torque converter solenoid is supposed to mechanically lock up the torque converter at highway speeds to improve gas mileage (eliminate converter slip). Sometimes they get stuck on - in that case the engine may stall on the downshift - it would be like trying to shift a manual transmission without pushing in the clutch pedal.

If the solenoid is not locking the torque converter when it should, you lose economy and performance at high speed and may have greater wear on the torque converter. If you can live with that, you can ignore the problem. Replacing the torque converter solenoid is probably not a trivial task - I don't know about your model, but it probably involves working inside the transmission.

One thing you can try is to disconnect the solenoid and hot-wire 12 Volts to it while listening for its movement. If you can hear or feel it engaging, the solenoid is OK and you have a problem either with the wiring or the solenoid driver circuit in the engine computer.

When i travel between 60 - 70 mph the car idles and sounds like the engine is reving. then the car will jolt and go back to normal. also the rpm jumps from 2000-3000

Don't know the issue

But that is the transmission coming out of gear

Not a good thing

I wouldn't drive it until a trans shop checked it out

Could be just torque converter lock-up (TCC)
