My transmission is slipping I have changed the fluid and it's to the right level and it's still slipping.the guy I bought it from had the same issue he had the tork converter changed and it fixed it??

you fail to mention the make , model , year of the vehicle and from your description , it indicates a torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid problem and that can be fixed without removing the transmission
the action is designed to slip ( does that when stationary idling and in gear) so the problem is in the lock up clutch or if an old transmission , low pressure or stuck spool valve in the valve body
Take it to an accredited specialist professional transmission shop and get a proper diagnosis done
could actually save you heaps of time and cash

How do i slide a tork converter on a 96 dodge

You may have to stand the transmission on end, and work the converter around until it drops down into place.

1994 chevy cvalier 3.1 engine...lately it's been shutting off when i come to stop. the oil pressure fluctuates and then shuts off. it always starts back up. any suggestions?

if this unit has an over drive tork converter the tork converter or the TC valve (solenoid) might be faulty, have you tried keeping your foot on the gas a bit to keep it running ? and what happens ? also some engines have a low oil pressure warning and engine cut out , did you check your oil ???

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.

Torque converter question.

I am going to say no, but id a possibility here is how I believe it works the converter would be Free spinning and not locked up spinning at low rpm so the hydroloics pressure is at minimum the steering when would have nothing to do wit it. However Ford has changes all the time in 2002 They connected the Ac to run threw the transmission so the transmission computer disengages the AC pump when you hit the gas and drops it into passing gear by flooring the fuel pedal this drops out the ac and also the power steering pressure if your not tuning the wheel this cuts out the power steering pump pressure switch so killing compressor is to gain another 5 House power you more horse power it is conceivable there is a hidden circuit in the computer system to cause a tork converter malfunction of the computer but I don't thing there is, the reason they would kill the power steering and a/c would be to gain 5 horse power for both ac and power steering which would give you added tork when it drops it into passing gear if you floor it. However I think the guy is misinformed. even if the transmission ran the power steering system it would have a system in place to by pass the tork converter I hope this helps. If you need any more information feel free for my opinion on this. The tork converter only goes into lockup in certain conditions. your description does not fit tork converter lock up. You could damage your tork converter if you have the transmission in drive and the brakes on and revved up the engine to 2000 rpms for more than 20 seconds you could balloon the tork converter up and cause it to destroy the fins in the tork converter That is the only way to damage it unless it was low on transmission fluid or some totally strange problem. I Have worked on a dozen of these cars and newer and have worked with Ford for 18 years. so the only way to be sure would be to buy a subscription to and research the power train system and look at recalls or campaigns that might cover this. thanks for using fix-ya.

Look for loose wires around the transmission, if you find any plug them back in. Ever change your transmission oil before? When? How long has it been?

Transmission completely quit working with no noise. Reverse worked for 10 min and the quite as well.

It sounds like you may have a sun gear failure. Before we go there check the fuse for the transmission, make sure it's still good. Good luck and keep me posted.
