Rotate the converter while putting it onto the stator/input shaft of the transmission. Make sure it goes on all the way. Note the converter hub - it will either have a couple of notches cut into the end of the hub or a couple of flats, either case - these engage the pump gear. If not fully engaged then you WILL break the pump when bolting up the transmission. Once it is in place, install the transmission, but as you install it, make sure the converter rotates freely and does not slide out of engagement with the pump (if the trans is tilted forward). When the transmission is completely bolted up you can then slide the converter forward slightly against the flexplate to bolt up (or converter studs through flexplate holes for nuts). Pay careful attention to what you're doing and you'll be OK - if not then be prepared to replace a broken pump!

Torque converter question.

I am going to say no, but id a possibility here is how I believe it works the converter would be Free spinning and not locked up spinning at low rpm so the hydroloics pressure is at minimum the steering when would have nothing to do wit it. However Ford has changes all the time in 2002 They connected the Ac to run threw the transmission so the transmission computer disengages the AC pump when you hit the gas and drops it into passing gear by flooring the fuel pedal this drops out the ac and also the power steering pressure if your not tuning the wheel this cuts out the power steering pump pressure switch so killing compressor is to gain another 5 House power you more horse power it is conceivable there is a hidden circuit in the computer system to cause a tork converter malfunction of the computer but I don't thing there is, the reason they would kill the power steering and a/c would be to gain 5 horse power for both ac and power steering which would give you added tork when it drops it into passing gear if you floor it. However I think the guy is misinformed. even if the transmission ran the power steering system it would have a system in place to by pass the tork converter I hope this helps. If you need any more information feel free for my opinion on this. The tork converter only goes into lockup in certain conditions. your description does not fit tork converter lock up. You could damage your tork converter if you have the transmission in drive and the brakes on and revved up the engine to 2000 rpms for more than 20 seconds you could balloon the tork converter up and cause it to destroy the fins in the tork converter That is the only way to damage it unless it was low on transmission fluid or some totally strange problem. I Have worked on a dozen of these cars and newer and have worked with Ford for 18 years. so the only way to be sure would be to buy a subscription to and research the power train system and look at recalls or campaigns that might cover this. thanks for using fix-ya.

Changed transmission, car moves when it hits 2000

Not likely a sensor most likely tork conveter lock up is not working or locked in or planetary gears bad. Valve body shifter solinoids could be stuck not sllowing to shift into high. so pull the pan and check to see if the pan has any particles in it if it does not then it is tork converter or possably you don't have the shift lingage adjusted right. you will have to shift it to park then adust the shift lever so that it is all the way in park, so try that first. if the fluid is brownish and smells like onions you may just need to replace the fluid and filter. If the transmisson you put in did not get a new filter then if it set for a long time the fliter could have jelled and plugged which could casue the same problem.

Tork cenverter is stuck on

Torque Converter

Look for loose wires around the transmission, if you find any plug them back in. Ever change your transmission oil before? When? How long has it been?

No it's the Tork Converter lockup Switch and if the fluid is not burned the tork converter may be going out, sometimes they do not replace the tork converter when rebuilding the transmissions, sometimes you save $200.00 sometimes you lose it. Check fluid level and see if it's brown if it is and smells like onions have the transmission oil and filter changed and have them flow test the transmission oil cooler. If it is plugged it could cause this as well.

Transmission completely quit working with no noise. Reverse worked for 10 min and the quite as well.

It sounds like you may have a sun gear failure. Before we go there check the fuse for the transmission, make sure it's still good. Good luck and keep me posted.

The transmission under hard acleration hesitates 99 dodge dieasel

It sounds to me that the clutch material in the transmission might be breaking down. Before too long I would have the transmission rebuilt or replaced. If you wait too much longer the transmission will start to slip and pretty soon you will have NO gears but first and reverse.
