It connects the engine with the transmission, so you would have to remove the transmission to gain access.

Bad torque convertor want to replace with one a little bit more heavy duty?


Marty, I'm not too sure if there's such a thing as a heavy duty torque converter. I can't say that I've ever heard of one. The type of torque converter is, as far as I'm aware, specific to the make-model and transmission of your vehicle.

A torque converter usually has a long life though sometimes they can develop faults such as leaks. Repair/rebuild is a specialised requirement and outside the scope of the home mechanic. It's only a specialised company that can do anything with them.

A second-hand torque converter is an option - but remember they are second hand and come with no guarantee. It may work fine for a few years - or a couple of weeks. There's no way of knowing which.

The link below is for torque converters on Ebay. Maybe contact one of the suppliers and ask their advice?

You can also do a Google search for 'reconditioned torque converter'. This is a slightly cheaper option (if you can find a reconditioned unit) and will come with some form of guarantee.

If you're doing the work yourself - well done! It's a big, messy job. I've done a few over the past 40 years.

On a personal note - I'm in the UK - many, many years ago I had a problem with the torque converter on a 1969 Rover 3500 V8. I didn't have much money at that time, and fitted a second hand torque converter. It took 2 days to complete the job.. which wasn't easy...

20 miles after fitting the second hand torque converter I became aware of torque converter problems ... and yes, I fitted another second hand torque converter which lasted a whole 4 weeks...

I'm sure you get the idea... New or reconditioned with a guarantee is the only option. My friend in Ohio assures me that the devil punishes people by making them fit second hand torque converters to their cars ... He's from Ohio, he doesn't tell lies..

I have a 01 dodge stratus the seal is leaking behind the torque converter. I've replaced it three times already


There is a bushing there also. If the torque converter isn't straight it will eat the seal every time. It is an internal bushing, the transmission has to be torn down/rebuild.. Also the torque converter can have a ridge where the seal sets. This is a converter replace.

Where is the clutch solenoid on montecarlos 2000


This code refers to the electrical side of the torque converter not the inside workings of the converter itself. Check the electrical connector and harness for opens breaks or chaffing. Most of the times the tcc solenoid replacement will fix this issue.

these cars have a major issue with torque converters.... the torque converter input splines are softer than the splines on the input shaft and it sheers the teeth off of the input side of the torque converter, i have replaced a ton of these for this problem... usually when you replace the torque converter every thing goes back to normal, what you need to do is check the fluid level while the engine is running, if the fluid level is really high than that is what happened because the torque converter failed and drained all the fluid into the pan... to fix it the transmission will have to come out and the torque converter will need replaced if you drain all the fluid out of it and look down into the center of the torque converter with a flash light you will see the splines missing...

1992chevcaviler torque converter solinoyd will not un lock converter


The torque converter clutch solenoid on the GM 125 transmission will stick when it gets hot and not let the torque converter clutch disengage. It has to be replaced. It is under the side cover. Quite simple to replace once the cover is off. The side cover however is fairly difficult to remove (usually involves dropping the left side of the transaxle).

Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Stuck On


the torque converter clutch circuit is inside the torque converter and is not something u can repair, the torque converter must be cut apart and rebuilt by companies who specialize in this, so all you can do is pull the transmission out of the car and replace the torque converter with a rebuilt or new unit.
