I'm assuming you mean a torque converter. They rarely go out. should we gather from the extra info that you found a problem with the linkage?

Is it missing reverse 2nd and 4th? If so it has a broken reverse reaction shell. They aren't too hard to replace

sounds like the reverse clutch is shot, pull the pan and look for allot of grey material in the pan, some is normal but a big pile is trouble, if it is not to bad change the fluid and filter and use the new DEXRON 6 fluid, it is compatable with all GM automatics, keep your fingers crossed and it should give you a little while longer before u need an overhaul..

If it is an automatic tranny, i had a similar problem in a 1989 CRX with an auto tranny. Your problem could be your torque converter, You may have knocked it a 1/2in or so when you connected and bolted the motor down to the tranny, in doing so you like i said, budged the torque converter out of its appropiate place. So it may or may not be grabbing like it should.....

If this is the problem, remove the motor from the tranny, (and you might as well replace your seal while at it if you havent), adjust the converter back into place, until it grabs ahold of the tranny, you will feel it, shove it back there. Take note of how it moves and what makes it come out of place, with that in mind, REPUT the tranny back in, bolt it down. Prey thats the problem

First check and confirm that transmission fluid is not leaking or got low.If its low then make it full.Also see if the filter is clogged or worn our or very old.If it is then replace the filter. The filter is inside; you have to pull it out and take it apart. There are also many other facing the same problem,In some cases the transmission needs to be reprogrammed as the computer to transmission is not getting detected.In some cases the transmission needs to be rebuilt . Get the transmission assembly scanned and retrieve the codes and replace the part as per the codes. --------- Get it checked.Keep updated.Thanks.

sounds like filter could be clogged, if it hasn't been changed in a while. you can try to replace throttle position sencer, it is like your old trans kinkenge system, only now, it is elect. it tells trans when to shift, like your speed sencer on trans doe's. both can make it act like it is.

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango and we got a transmission from Ebay and we got the old one out and new one in and the torch convert bolts won't line up...any suggestions?


Its the wrong transmission. You can't swap transmissions with different engine sizes. You also can't swap converters with different transmissions. Just won't work. Sorry. Pull it and send it back.

Tranny stoped working no movement in any gears.


I know you don't want to hear this but the forward clutch pack has failed, that is either due to wear or a loose of hydraulic fluid pressure inside the trans, pull the pan and look for debris in the pan, if that is only normal small amounts of black goop then the problem is a failed seal in the pressure passages, in any case the trans has to come apart to fix it, so an overhaul will be required. this trans is prone to failure around 100,000 miles. my experience 40 years as an automotive tech, master certified automatic trans technician.

it could be the torque converter, but not a valve there is a separate valve for each gear, the chance of all the valves sticking at the same time would be rair but even if the converter has failed it will send trash all threw the transmission causing you transmission to have to be rebuilt or replaced, you have probably had a pump fail in the transmission witch would also cause you to have to rebuild the transmission or replace it, but you might just want to check the fluid level, you may have a leak and it is just so low on fluid it can not work.......GOOD LUCK

Are there codes in the transmission computer? Likely the torque converter clutch is not disengaging or a holding member with the transmission could not be releasing. this could be caused by a faulty shift solenoid or a mechanical failure with the transmission. Check to ensure the transmission shift properly under all conditions. Also, stall test the torque converter, put it in gear hold the brakes firm and throttle the engine. Generally the torque converter will stall out around or above 2,000 rpm. If it stalls out much lower, check the torque converter clutch solenoid for proper operation.

Again, check the transmission computer for codes. You will need an advanced OBD1 scan tool which can communicate like a hikock scan tool ( ford factory for that era)

Whinning noise is the bearing of the oil pump inside torque converter.
Burning smell fluid has little to know pressure ( cause pump is dying) can't circulate to cool parts as well as provide pressure. Time for a rebuild.

BMW 535 auto gearbox issue?


hello jimandsuecla, you could potentially have a trans torque converter that is staying engaged. If the converter does not release, it would be similar to slowing down a manual transmission in first gear and not pushing in the clutch. You could also potentially have an idle valve that is sticking/binding and not responding enough to change in rpm and load. Does the car stall when the a/c is on and when the a/c is off? Have you had any shifting concerns. What is the current idle rpm reading while in gear with the a/c on or off?Any additional info will be helpful.Thanks
