What kind of problem are you having with the transmission? I'm asking because there is no relay sensor for the torque converter clutch.

I can't seem to get my motor and transmission to bolt back together theirs about a half inch between them what am I doing wrong please help anyone Its a 95 Pontiac bonneville I'm having the problem...

When you get ready to bolt the transmission back to the engine, you have to make sure that the torque convertor is seated all the way into the transmission. With the transmission and engine put together there should be about 1/2 inch between the flywheel (flexplate) and the torque convertor. It should also spin freely. If not then you might not have the convertor all the way in the trans.

I was driving today in my 2004 Ford Freestar van when all of a sudden the transmission stopped being engaged. I pulled over, no problem with the moter, but it would not slip back into drive reverse etc. No...

I have seen a problem with torque convertors on these vehicles, they will just all the sudden neutral out and that is it no noise no codes nothing... alot of times depending on the failure of the convertor just the convertor can be changed.... what usually happens is the splines inside of the convertor sheer off and once a new convertor is put in everything is back to normal.

98 SW wagon starts fine but stalls out when put into drive or reverse. Code P0743 comes up after diagnostic check. Says Torque Converter Circuit is open. How do I go about fixing this?

I was definitely gonna say your torque converter. The fix is to replace your torque converter. The convertor basically transfers the moving motion from the engine to the non moving motion of your transmission smoothly. When it goes bad it will usually make the motor run rough in gear or stall the motor when it's completely bad. It will be a fairly expensive cost since the torque convertor sits between the engine and transmission. It also could be faulty wiring as well. You would have to have it physically diagnosed by a mechanic to confirm if its electrical or the actual torque convertor.

What causes the car to be unable to switch gear, and how can I resolve that problem?

Fluid, transmission fluid,especially the right type,For a electronic controlled transmission, youll need to check the engine control and engine computer for proper operation there are many sensor that provide input to the transmission control. Heres some mechanical the torque convertor,must be able to push fluid out, the transmission oil pump must be able to supply the torque convertor and give proper pressure,for valves to operate,then there are the gears,that has to transfer power.Okay lets keep it simple there is a PRNDL switch that can fail and it wont allow a gear change, Then there is TPS throttle position sensor that allows the gear change,then and output speed sensor that allows a gear change.There are factor that contribute to proper gear change and there all simple, First and foremost it fluid check fluid condition is it foaming, its a seal problem, is it pink its contaminated,is it burnt, (black) the clutches are worn.

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, automatic transmission. Engine light comes on and then when car shifts gears, it shifts very rough. Took it to a mechanic and it wasn't reading any codes. Had car serviced and...

A vacuum leak somewhere, or a tranny modulator, or both. Mechanic can do a vacuum test, or you can buy the vacuum meter and do it yourself. transmissin modulator (if your car uses one, that is) is located on the outside of the tranny and looks like a frisbee-shaped disk about the size of the base of a water glass, made of aluminum, and has a vacuum hose attached. buy at a parts store. (I'm betting on a vacuum leak, though)
