Question about Ford Escort
Well, I can say with certainty that it is not your torque converter. I'll wager that before this happened, the transmission was slipping, wasnt it?
It is possible that the clutches - and steels they ride on are welded together.
I have seen this many times when rebuilding automatic transmissions.
One other time I saw a sprag welded together and gave the same symptoms.
Only thing to do is a complete rebuild or find a working unit torque converter included, and use that.
Do not re-use your torque converter, because it is full of debris, and you will just pump it all into the next one you put in.
If you swap or rebuild, you will need to flush out the cooler and lines - otherwise all the debris in the cooler will pump right into the replacement trans.
If you have any other questions, feel free to respond to this.
I am so sorry - Take Care.
