It sounds as if there is no oil pressure in the transmission, it is possible you have no fitted the convertor correctly. if it is not fully engaged into the transmission oil pump it will not drive. of course the other thing could be the transmission has a fault. I am of course assuming you have filled the transmission with the correct type and quantity of oil. if you have pull the trans, and check the convertor has not damaged the oil pump,

Will go in reverse but not forward. Automatic 4 wheel drive. Why would it do that?

a blown torque converter to a trashed transmission Or a broken shifter. Ive had the Torque converter go out on my 76 Cherokee, but eventually it wouldn't move at all, if reverse is no issue, look to the shifter, I had this happen on my 82 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor when a 26 dollar cast aluminum piece in the steering column broke so it would no move the linkage to the transmission, it took 30 minutes for me to replace. a blown transmission is a major issue, and can be a costly problem however, does not mean you shouldn't repair/or replace the tranny. vehicle value is the big question

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward

The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

I have a 2007 hyundai sonata limited v6 fully loaded. i went to drive it started it up and put it in reverse and it slipped something terrible i then put it in drive and it didn't move. i then proceeded to...

I think your torque converter IS the problem. Because it's the only thing that attaches the engine to the transmission and it's designed to "lock up" at highway speeds for overdrive. If it locks up at idle it will kill the engine. If it locks up at slow speeds ( < 35mph ) the vehicle will lurch/buck... And if it wont move in forward or reverse I would say it's time for a new/rebuilt transmission

Car jolting ahead when you turn it over to start it while its in park?

the torque converter needs a certain RPM from the engine before it engages this is known as "stall speed" if your car is jerking forward when the transmission is in park during startup there is a chance the converter is failing to release completely, on the side of the transmission by the bell housing there is a square plug that controls the torque lock solenoid, disconnect the wire and then try to start the vehicle, if it does not try to move forward you have a defective solenoid.

How do i know if its my tcc solenoid and not the torque converter its self and will it affect the reverse

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.

2000 buick lesabre transmission torque converter sensory relay my be bad. I put in in reverse i get nothing Put it in park or drive and it acts like it wants to go forward what is that?

I would say that the transmission is either way low on transmission fluid, or needs rebuilt. I would say I agree with the relay, but if the car tries to move, then it is not going to be the relay.

My 1991 volvo 740 turbo sw has sluggish acceleration, engine revs high before engages and moves forward

Start by checking the automatic transmission fluid level hot. You may want to take this to a local Volvo dealer to have the transmission serviced first.

Usually when the transmission slips, shifts rough, is noisy or has no drive in forward or reverse gears this indicates that the fluid pressure is low. When the transmission is serviced the oil is drained, the screen/filter is changed, the magnets cleaned and the pan cleaned as well. Dirt can clog the screen, which is a filter that is designed to trap particles that would otherwise damage the unit. The magnets are designed to trap metal shavings before they can contaminate the oil.

If this fails to correct the issue, the clutch packs could be worn out inside the transmission itself. These are the friction plates that actually perform shifting duties. The other possibility is that the torque converter or its pump is worn, resulting in low line pressure. Although replacement is possible, consider a rebuilt unit before repairing - the cost of installation of a rebuilt unit is usually about the same for repair of these types of problems. The result will be a vehicle that is both reliable and long lasting.

My car wont move forward or reverse

Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.

Volkswagen 01M torque converter stuck

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience
