Question about Cars & Trucks
6 years ago I parked my 65 ranchero (289 C4 auto ) with a vibration in it. It vibrated standing still, in park or neutral. This happens when you increase the rpms to about 1200. Over the 6 year time period the torque converter drained its fluid on the floor. I started it last week, and had no vibration. After I replenished the trans fluid to a normal level the vibration came back. I do not know how a torque converter is made, but It seems logical to me I have a bad converter. Can some one help me with this issue ?

The torque converter is bad and the flex plate may be cracked around the crank flange. I would replace both.

I think you are right, since in park the only thing turning in tranny is torque converter. had same trbl with an impala once.

Did you recently replace the axles on the vehicle? This problem commonly occurs in Subarus when you replace the axles with non-OEM parts. The only fix seems to be to swap out the axles for OEM parts. Search the forums at subaruoutback.org for many stories of the same condition and some theories on why non-OEM axles cause the problem.

check tyres for wear-wheel balance needed if visibly ok-have a wheel alignment after a tyre rotation-best even tyres to be put on fronts-they will carry out a safety check all suspension and steering before doing the wheel alignment

I would begin by replacing the filter if its not new, 2 possibility of issue, faulty shifting module or defective transmission rebuilt. just because it has been rebuilt does not mean the individual work on it did a good job. the less cost effective way is to locate used modulator from ebay or junk yard, if that does not rectified the issue than more likely it will be the tranny. the bad part is that I dont know of a company offer a bench test for the tranny modulator.
