What make you think the "TORQUE" Convertor is not working properly.

from what you describe all is well

if it is not working right, it could be many things....speed sensor, trans mission pump, bad convertor, bad valve in transmission, bad computer

Would the torch converter being low on fluid cause my truck to die when I shift it in to gear it is a 1997 dodge 1500 sport

hi, no the torque converter would not cause that..... it will put more load on engine and if not idling correctly, it may stall- check idle rpm and compare to working truck

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.

Could possibly be your lock clutch converter solenoid that doesn't work correctly .

Best way to know is to check for engine or transmission codes . But you'll need to have an obd2 scanner.

Frozen car door locks

If you are close to a extension cord, use a hair dryer and use it to thaw the lock. Borrow a portable generator, plug in an extension cord and use the hair dryer.

The hair dryer is about as hot as you dare use on the plastic and paint of your car. Do not use a cigarette lighter, propane torch, or flame.

They do make a probe that uses flashlight batteries to heat a wire element to stick in the lock hole. They are effective and hard to find.

Sometimes a tool called a Slim-Jim is used by Tow truck operators and Police to assist you. It can work, but the window may be frozen to the door and then it would not work.

A Locksmith may have some of these devices and your Car insurance may offer the Locksmith services.

Need an exploded diagram of the Catalytic Converter with oxygen sensors

We just changed out our catalytic converter. We got ours from O'Reilly's Automotive for ~$250 and the best part is that the new ones come in two pieces (which means no torch). Being not the slimmest folks, we had to raise it high, but once you get under it, you can literally reach right up into where the four bolts that hold the CC in (get new ones with lock washers), disconnect the Oxygen sensor (which you should replace) and man-handle off of the muffler in the back. Like I said, the new one is a two-piece, so you remount the CC itself and then work the pipe on. You may need to purchase a separate bracket if the pipe and CC don't go on snug. Don't forget to plug the new sensor back in!

Catalytic converters out is it hard to change by

Sometimes I have had to use a torch set to cut off old fasteners due to rust. You will have to look it over and decide. That is usually the worst part. Also, if the O2 sensor is part of it, you will need to borrow or get a good socket for it.

Sometimes the lock in converter does not work right...then when i come to a complete stop and go again it it will work (sometimes)

that is normal...why do you insist that there is something wrong.

That is how a lock up convertor works.....they will not lock up at all times only when the computer feels it needs too.

1987 mr2 OD problem

It sounds as much like a lack of Torque Converter Clutch as what you call O.D. I know this won't make sense to you but if the brake switch is not working correctly it will drop Lock-up of the converter clutch. In what ever gear you get to lightly step on the brake without letting off the gas & if your in lock-up the clutch should release and your RPM go up. Also in winter you will get a tighter valve body in low temp but the first shift and a few blocks later your okey. The valve body sounds dirty ,if your getting lock-up. I hope you have changed the fluid every couple years since it was new,and used the correct fluid. A fluid change won't fix this issue and never use any additives. Also check to see if you have a lock-up solenoid external or speed sensor. They will have to be tested by a professional diagnostic tool.
