SOURCE: bad catalytic converter?

Log onto I believe they have Catalytic converters for your pathfinder for under $200.00, there OEM direct fit which means no cutting other then removing the old bolts.
If it is the Catalytic converter you can always buy it from on line and have a muffler shop install it like speedy or midas. Make sure you ask for stainless bolts and nuts.
Before you go through all the trouble, re check the DTC codes. Most of the time it's the O2 sensors that go bad and i question the garage charging you so much for the replacement of a catalytic converter.
Good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: torque converter for ford f-150

Torque converters are cheap, around $100 because they can easily be rebuilt. But they almost never go bad, because they only have one bearing, and it is always bathed in oil.
So why do you think you even need one?
It bolts to the drive plate, which is like a light flywheel replacement, so that the starter has a ring gear to engage. So it it not part of the transmission at all, and is between the transmission and engine. If it is leaking, it is not hard to replace the seals and bushings once you take the transmission out.

SOURCE: Head gasket blown. What is approximate cost to

  1. Many internal engine problems, such as a blown head gasket, cracked head or cracked piston, can be repaired without having to replace an entire engine.
  2. Potential
  3. While taking the time to replace an engine may seem labor-intensive and costly, it will add years to a vehicle's life and will save a car owner from the cost of having to buy a new car.
  4. Benefits
  5. Taking a car to a mechanic and replacing an engine with a used engine can cost between $1,000 to $2,000 for parts and labor.
  6. Solution
  7. Car owners interested in replacing their engines with new ones can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $4,000.
  8. Speculation
  9. For those interested in doing the engine replacement themselves, purchasing specialized tools needed for the job is a cost to consider in addition to the price of a replacement engine.

SOURCE: What would it cost to fix a torque converter stuck

It may be as simple as a short in the wire or a bad TCC solenoid that needs to be replaced. The most would be just under $200.00 with parts and labor with transmission fluid and filter replaced.
If your lucky, you may find where the issue is if it's a wire that is shorting out. Inspect your TCC switch on your brake peddle and it may just need to be readjusted. The other place would be a short to the transmission harness where is connects to the transmission. Once all electrical connections have been inspected, then your going to have to move on to having a transmission shop replace the TCC solenoid replaced.
TCC always locked: TCC apply solenoid circuit shorted to ground, TCC solenoid blockage (easy fix in pan), or TC broken (must remove trans and replace TC).
Thank you for using fixya and most common would be a ground problem, good luck and hope it's will cost you nothing if you find it.

Shudder could be the lockup torque converter if it is an automatic transmission. Another one would be the drive axles. Check the CV joints and u-joint in the drivetrain. If the shudder comes and goes with load changes, it could be either. However, to tell if it is the torque converter, watch the tachometer when the shudder occurs. If the RPM rises slightly, then drops off as the shudder stops, it is the torque converter. There is an additive for this issue that can be purchased an any parts store, called shudder-ease. Hope this helps you.

Torque converter

Transmission will be fine. The torque converter is the oil filled automatic clutch that transmits power for engine to gearbox. If it only does it between second and third, then the transmission is faulty, not the torque converter. You want both changing. The money is in the labour, so economically it makes sense to do both. At 91,000 miles, you need a new car.

Transmission wont engage

Hello, it sound like my ******, it will not engage either. When is the last time you have automatic transmission fluid changed? Check it, and if smells like something has been burning. The biggest killer of automatic transmission is heat. Auto manufactures don't give these auto/trucks enough fluid reserve and adequate fluid cooling, especially if the auto/truck is in hot weather condition and the vehicle is pulling a load.

It also sound like the torque converter is out. This will probably mean rebuild transmission with new torque converter or have your Oldsmobile Ciera rebuilt with a new torque converter. GB...stewison

Unfortunately, there is very little that an untrained person can do much more to an automatic transmission than check the fluid and make sure that it is getting coolant so that it doesn't get too hot.
I work on cars all the time, and have rebuilt two automatic transmissions. One I was lucky and got it exactly right (beginners luck) and the other one I didn't. After multiple trys and probably replacing good parts, I gave up and took it to a transmission shop. So unless you are either VERY LUCKY or trained to work on them, my advice is to bite the bullet and seak professional help.
