If you put the fluid in then when started it should fill the converter, i always when filling the trans i put 3or 4 quarts in then I put it through the gears and back in park and recheck untill full i do this untill it's full you might try it to see if it works for you

No just after you get it installed be sure to crank it and let it warm up and then check the fluid.

Might ask your mechanic but you fill the transmission through the dip stick hole with a long funnel. This might be the way for the converter. I am not sure.

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.

Torque converter will not turn after transmission bell housing bolts are tighten...what is wrong?

When installing a torque converter there are two separate steps for two separate shafts with two different sets of splines.You must first turn the torque converter when on the input shafts until you feel Both steps engage one at a time.And with each step the torque converter will go deeper into the bell housing.To tell if you have caught each of the steps correctly you will be able to easily turn the torque converter,even when the trans and engine are pulled up tight.There will even be a gap between the flex plate and torque converter.What ever you do don't use the starter to get the torque converter all the way in.Take out the two bottom bolts of the trans and replace them with 1" longer ones.Then remove all the other bolts from the housing.Slide the trans as far back on those two bolts as you can until the torque converter will turn easily again,then turn while pushing in toward the trans until you feel the converter slip in that last step.Slide the trans back up to the engine and make sure the converter still spins freely,then finish your install.My first trans I literally broke the transmission housing by not fully seating the converter.Hope this helps?

New automatic transmission was installed but does not go forward or in reverse?

Heres some ideas start with the basics make sure you have trans fluid to the correct level. Next maybe the torque converter was not bolted on. Last maybe the trans is defective I know you say its new but even new parts come defective.

Chevy TH350 trans problem

if you just had it rebuilt should ba a warranty if is was im sure you wouldnt be on here asking so did you install new torque converter when the trans was rebuilt? check the trans filter not clogged how long did it run after the rebuild or did you install it yourself after the rebuild and it doesnt work ? let me just say the torque converter should always be replaced with the transmission new or rebuilt and when the transmission is being installed you have to make absolutely sure the converter is all the way back on the trans if not you will damage the front pump on trans and would need to replace it .

Changing the transmission fluid

Once you've drained the transaxle by removing drain plug, re-install drain plug and torque to mfg. specs. To fill transaxle, you need a 5/8" square drive attached to a 9" extension, breaker bar or ratchet. Raise vehicle on hoist, or jack up and secure with jackstands. The fill plug is located above and slightly to the right of the location where the passenger side c.v. halfshaft enters the transaxle. Remove fill plug. Using a fluid exchange tool available at your local parts store, fill with automatic transmission/transaxle fluid available only from a Suzuki dealership, (part# ESSO LT 71141) until fluid starts to run out of fill hole, then replace fill plug, and torque to manufacturer specifications. I'm a former Suzuki technician. I hope this was helpful.
