Motor runs fine but car will not move no matter what gear you put it into, could this be a torque converter or would it most likely be the transmission?

My backhoe was running the wheels were up on the stabilizers put it in gear .it snuffed the motor and now it wont roll over and wont move by trying the ring gear .could the torque converter look it up


Transmissions will be over full when not running. And the torque converter won't lock up the engine In neutral. Not sure about backhoes, but if you have a TCC switch. It will only kill the engine in gear. wheels on the ground.

Sounds like there is a problem with the Torque converter in the transmission or Transmission itself. When you put it in gear it should initially go into neutral but occasionally the transmission will stick part way in gear and partially in neutral putting a load on the motor. It is not enough of a load to get the vehicle moving but it is enough to stall the motor. This could be a simple clutch adjustment in the Automatic clutch to a PCV valve issue to a need to rebuild the whole transmission because of a problem with the control body or transmission pump itself. Sorry for the bad news.

did you hook up the flywheel to the torque converter? the clicking and grinding noise could be the trans is in park and the flywheel is going around, or the torque converter is bound up and not properly in the pump of the trans, and the clicking and grinding could be the parking pawl trying to stop and lock the trans.(this is what stops the car from rolling) I think its a torque converter alignment problem.

Idling burning oil fast


It sounds like your Torque Converter is bad as far as the car not staying running when put into gear, The purpose of a Torque Converter is to allow the engine to Idle while in gear. As far as burning oil, i couldnt honestly say i know.

Stalls


he diff between a lockup vs non-lockup torque converter is the lockup simply locks the torque converter to the transmission direct electrically so there is no slippage in high gear. And there is no advantage to using a 2300 rpm stall converter if you are running a basically stock cam. However if you insist on this high stall speed torque converter you'll be able to lay down some impressive black marks froma standing start! One final note...unless you change your rear end gears your RPM's at a given speed remain the same. All the 2300 rpm does is your motor will rev a bit more before you start moving

Stalls when put into gear


Its possible it could be other things causing the problem, but seeing as you've checked most of the likely causes, it is most likely your Torque-Converter. The lockup clutch in your Stator-Fan located inside the Torque-Converter could be siezed, causing the car to stall.
