SOURCE: Volkswagen 01M torque converter stuck

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience

How to install a torque converter in a 2000 Ford ranger 2.5 liter engine

The only secret caution...
(besides not dropping the whole greasy mess on your head)...

To make sure the torque converter is fully and properly seated (FULLY) inside the front pump gear... and ABSOLUTELY must stay seated while your are bouncing and wiggling everything around to get that TRANNY fully bolted to the engine...

Bolt the starter drive gear to the torque converter last...

and yes a big ugly felt marker to help with that final alignment would be SMART.

(oh yeah... know ALL your torque specs).

Good luck.

find a friend of a friend of a friend , next time.
if all forward gears are dead, and the manual lever works.
the trans is bad.
try with TCM unplugged to trans.
and all forward gears dead,
with no TCM , 1st gear must work, it must move.
unplugging it , prevents any TCM wrong doing.
and only the internal manual valve now works,
does it?

I have a 1998 town and country 3.8 tranny that won't go into gear. The van stays in neutral for all gears. Everything from the internals to pump to torque converter are brand new. It was rebuilt 2 times....

If the unit has been rebuilt properly in an accredited shop then a place where a problem occurs is the installation of the box in the car. It is essential that when fitting the unit that the torque converter is fitted onto the shaft and pushed back to the box to engage the pump drive before it is offered up to the flex plate and bolted onto the engine. Once the bolts have been fixed then the torque converter can be pulled forward that bit to bolt to the flex plate. If the torque converter is bolted first and then the box offered up it is possible that the pump is not engaging correctly and not working. To check this put a pressure gauge in a line to check for oil pressure in the box when running.

Sounds like the valve body and/or transmission pump have some problems. I would replace the complete valve body on this car. I just did one and it cleared up ALL of the problems I was having with shifting, pump noise, and torque converter lock-up. They are available on eBay for around $200 for your car. They are also fully rebuilt and updated from the manufacturer.
Good Luck!

if you are getting a true rebuilt transmission they will include a torque convertor. do not use the old one. plus it will also void any warranty on the trans.
