Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

Narrowing it down.

How do I know if I chang the tourque converter that it will fix my slipping transmission, or should I change the transmission as well? Just to be sure it's not the pressure plates?

First check is fluid level. Is the fluid red without any discoloration or any dirt particles? If contaminated fluid, then likely the clutch plates that activate different gears are worn--possibly due to low pump pressure. Best to visit a reliable transmission service shop for advice and repair. Hope this helps!

The torque converter slips more than normal only if the oil level is really low - check that. Otherwise the problem is clearly with the pressure plates - and those can be replaced, you don't need to replace the entire tranny for that.

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!

you are probably low on transmission fluid.
top it off by the dipstick while running in park. and you should be fine if it reads full, then your fluid needs to be changed or your filter is clogged. replace as necessary.if the problem continues after the fluid and filter have been changed then its time to have the transmission replaced or services.
good luck.

Tourque converter


The torque converter is a good sized round object bolted to the flywheel inside the bell housing.
