Replace with original part, check for proper fluid level on tranny, check for leaks or bbroken hoses.

I have 96 dodge ram 1500 half ton auto trans . the torque converter sael went out so when i pulled the seal a bearing came out to i do know i need to replace it but is pressed in or can be pushed in as in...

when this happens in my shop we change the converter, "bearing"aka(pump bushing) and the seal . in some extream cases you may need to replace the pump ..the bushing should be available and can be tapped in with a hammer and propper chisel , most transmission oriented shops would charge you 75-125.00 if you bring the unit to them to put in the bushing and seal properly , they will probably help you locate a reman converter for a reasonable price

Replacing the transmission in my 2000 chevy truck 5.3 four wheel halfton got the tranny and the tourqe converter is still on the flywheel but can't figure a way too loosten the tourqes holding it to...

You'll need a box end wrench and a pry bar. Use the pry bar to hold the ring gear against the motor while you use the box end wrench to remove one bolt. Then rotate the engine with the bar to bring the next bolt around to where you can get the wrench on it. Repeat until you have the bolts off. Do not lose those bolts. If you do they will have to be ordered at the dealer.
When you put the torque convertor back in the transmission it has to go in two steps. It will slide in so far and then you will have to turn and push until it goes in again. If you don't do this the trans will not mount flush with the engine. When it's in the transmission properly it should sit about an inch inside the housing. Hope this helps.

About every 200 miles, check engine lite comes on with code P0741, tourqe converter clutch circute per. or stuck off. Also, min oil indicater comes on, we check the oil and it is at proper level


The torque converter Clutch solenoid is responsible to hold the pressure when you put your foot on the brakes and that's why automatic transmission don't let the car stall at a stop sign. So you might check the transmission oil for the proper level and hopefully you wont need to change the torque converter clutch Solenoid. Good luck

that trans is a fully electronic transmission, and cannot work just from the shifter. ( its just a park awl, and a switch to tell what gear to go to) its stuck in a forward gear, if all solenoids are out, it may be a computer issue, or wiring. check electrical connections to the trans

Just put new rebuilt aoutomatic transmisoin in a 1996 dodge halfton now when you start it it makes a grinding noise it sounds like it is coming from the tourqe converter and the converter is not rubbing on...

Your problem sounds like it may be one of two problems, the first thing that comes to mind is a defective rebuilt transmission, which is remedied by taking it back to its rebuilder while it still is warranteed, may be a bad pump but leave that to the pros to determine.
Second thing that comes to mind is the lock up torque converter, no matter what that whole assembly has to be taken down for either of the above conditions to be properly repaired and inspected.

My 2002 Nissa Pathfinder with only 54,000 miles, transmission went out. Is this common for such low milege on a Nissan. Has any one else had this happen to them?

What are the symptoms? condition of the fluid? It could be somthing electirical. Or it could be the tourqe converter splines stripped.(common issue) if that is the case all you have to do is replace the tourqe converter not the trans. still a big job but not as expensive. there are ways of diagnosing the problem without pulling the trans.
