Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

We unplugged torque converter clutch many miles ago it ran fine for many miles (hundreds)the other day suddenly there seemed to be no gears and it coasted to a stop do you have any suggestions?

185,000 plus miles. We have checked trans axles they are locked in and good, checked fluids,linkages, cable and modulator vacumme line. According to Hynes the overdrive transmission was only in 1995 or later models the VIN # says its July 1993. Prior parts we have replaced have been 1995 model parts. It registers as a 1994. This truly is not a joke even though it does make for a good laugh. Hopefully you can help us

Why did you unplug the torque converter clutch miles ago?
Did it turn on the "check engine" light?
What kind of car is it? year? (OK probably a 94) make, model, engine size (8th digit of the VIN # will tell that) etc will also be needed to go further

SOURCE: transmission no pressure

Nope, no positives. It does sound like the pump has failed. If the stop leak didn't help seal any internal seals that may have failed, it looks like the transaxle will have to come out for repairs or another replacement.
I don't think the torque converter ever makes noise when bad.
I would think your diagnosis of a bad pump is correct, given no movement of fluid in the cooler lines. Kudos for checking the lines-cool idea, I never thought of that.

You may have an internal transmission problem or clutch issue. If you can shift the car into gear while running without using the clutch pedal, suspect a defective clutch

doesn't need a rebuild
try an oil change for the transmission as it indicates dirty oil and sticking balves
should have been changed at the 60000 miles mark or 120,000miles
run fault codes to check for torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid problem

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.

i think you answered your own question.. torque converter clutch or overdrive solenoid. also your overdrive band could be a little worn and about ready to **** the bed for good but i'd check the other things. if you had transmission work done on it before when they put the torque converter on maybe it didn't get re-seated properly. push and turn it will click do it 2 more times clicking a total of 3 times

MAY BE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH CIRCUIT, WEAK TRANNY WHICH FORD IS KNOWN FOR, THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR, OR BAD TORQUE CONVERTER. DO YOU HAVE ANY "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHTS ON? IF YOU DO THAN IT IS AN ELECTRICAL OR SENSOR PROBLEM. IF NOT THAN IT IS A PROBLEM WITH THE TRANNY PARTS, TORQUE CONVERTER, OR LINKAGE PROBLEM
