How to install a torque converter in a 2000 2.5Lt on Ford ranger 2 wheel drive?

You need to remove the transmission to do this. Remove the inspection cover at the junction of the engine and transmission to get to the bolts to disconnect the torque converter from the drive plate (the part with teeth that the starter engages). Remove the driveshaft, then the transmission. The torque converter will come out with the transmission. Pull the old torque converter from the transmission, and install the new one. Ensure the torque converter goes all the way into the transmission/hydraulic pump. Reinstall the transmission, ensuring that the torque converter is still free to turn during the entire installation process, especially while drawing up the transmission to the engine. Once the transmission is bolted up, reinstall the bolts holding the torque converter to the drive plate. Reinstall the drive shaft and the inspection cover.

If you haven't done any major mechanical work on a car before, seek the help of someone who has. You will need a hoist or a jack and jack stands, and a good set of tools.

Ok So I Brought My 2006 Lincoln Zephyr To The Transmission shop They Gave Me A Quote Of 4200, I Refuse To Pay That for This Vehicle. I Found A transmission For 700 Low millage And I Have A Buddy That Has A...

You'll need a transmisssion jack. The biigest concern is when installing the new transmission, make sure the torque converter is positioned so the front pump is still engaged before you start tightening any bolts. If the transmission will not contact the engine completely then the torque converter has come out of the front pump. Lower the transmission and turn the torque converter slowly until you feel the spot where the pump engages and you can push the torque converter into the transmission. Realicn the transmission with the jack and start installing the mount bolts. When that is done then install the bolts that fasten the converter to the flywheel. Reconnect the wire harness and fill the trans.

How difficult is it to replace torque converter clutch in a 1991 cavalier?

-Better ask a professional to do for you. It's heavy and difficult since you don't know much about car and tools. (you have to separate and remove the transmission in other to get to the converter.)
-Why you need to replace the converter...?
-Make sure have a professional to diagnose the problem before replace.

Good Luck

1992chevcaviler torque converter solinoyd will not un lock converter

The torque converter clutch solenoid on the GM 125 transmission will stick when it gets hot and not let the torque converter clutch disengage. It has to be replaced. It is under the side cover. Quite simple to replace once the cover is off. The side cover however is fairly difficult to remove (usually involves dropping the left side of the transaxle).

When changing a pump rotor, tourque converter, gasket and filter on the transmisson, would you have to take apart the transmission to get to any of them?

There is nothing called a pump rotor in this transmission pump.It has a gear type pump with and inner and outer gear.You would need to remove the pump from the front of transmission to perform this repair(suspicious that it would need pump gears and not have major internal transmission damage, never seen that in 25 years of rebuilding)but would not have to completely disassemble transmission.The filter can replaced by removing pan on bottom of transmission and the torque converter fits into the pump at the front of transmission.You would need to remove transmission from the car to install torque converter.Are you trying to fix a problem or understand a repair that has already been preformed?Let me know if I can help.Good Luck!

95 ford escort transmission leak

Dont waste your time and money trying to use a transmission stop leak product, they don't work on large leaks, you say the leak is excessive in this case the you must remove the transmission to access and remove the torque converter, after you have removed the torque converter carefully inspect the torque convert imput shaft for wear and also you will need to visually inspect the transmission front pump bushing for wear also, I have seen it all to often people just replace the seal thinking it was just a seal failure, well more times than not there is a reason for seal more than just the age of the seal, excessive wear on trans pump bushing and torque converter imput shaft is usaully the cause, check and repair those as good practice during this repair unless you just like to do the repair over again for free... also check the torque converter run out, sometime when they are repaired they are welded back together somewhat crooked which will cause it to spin off of a true center, this will cause immediate damage to transmission. Check also your engines crankshaft end play for looseness this can cause wobble which will transfer to transmission causing this problem as well... do the repair thouroughly and who ever does it for you have them check all that I listed and you should get a good repair which will last without issues.... please rate my help thanks...
