Torque convert spins up when you accelerate, increasing fluid pressure to your automatic transmission to engage engine. Pressures vary between shifts to change gears ratios. Hope that makes sense...

Bad torque convertor want to replace with one a little bit more heavy duty?


Marty, I'm not too sure if there's such a thing as a heavy duty torque converter. I can't say that I've ever heard of one. The type of torque converter is, as far as I'm aware, specific to the make-model and transmission of your vehicle.

A torque converter usually has a long life though sometimes they can develop faults such as leaks. Repair/rebuild is a specialised requirement and outside the scope of the home mechanic. It's only a specialised company that can do anything with them.

A second-hand torque converter is an option - but remember they are second hand and come with no guarantee. It may work fine for a few years - or a couple of weeks. There's no way of knowing which.

The link below is for torque converters on Ebay. Maybe contact one of the suppliers and ask their advice?

You can also do a Google search for 'reconditioned torque converter'. This is a slightly cheaper option (if you can find a reconditioned unit) and will come with some form of guarantee.

If you're doing the work yourself - well done! It's a big, messy job. I've done a few over the past 40 years.

On a personal note - I'm in the UK - many, many years ago I had a problem with the torque converter on a 1969 Rover 3500 V8. I didn't have much money at that time, and fitted a second hand torque converter. It took 2 days to complete the job.. which wasn't easy...

20 miles after fitting the second hand torque converter I became aware of torque converter problems ... and yes, I fitted another second hand torque converter which lasted a whole 4 weeks...

I'm sure you get the idea... New or reconditioned with a guarantee is the only option. My friend in Ohio assures me that the devil punishes people by making them fit second hand torque converters to their cars ... He's from Ohio, he doesn't tell lies..

Lost my top gear in 1998 bonneville runs at 3000 rpms @ 70. help car has 237xxx miles motor still strong


The torque converter has clutch plates in it that wear down so you loose the over drive function with high miles. The transmission can also not be sending the pressure to apply the clutch in the torque converter.

It also has code po743 and po755


P0743 - Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Electrical
Possible causes- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
Tech notes This is an electrical problem code. Could be a problem to the harness to the TCC solenoid, the TCC solenoid connector or the TCC solenoid it self.
P0755 - Shift Solenoid B Malfunction
Possible causes- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid B valve
- Shift solenoid B valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid B valve circuit is open or shorted Tech notes When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

1993 buick century starts jumping when you stop, engine dies, but will start.


This could be a sign that the torque converter is starting to fail. A torque converter does pretty much for an automatic transmission what a clutch does for a standard transmission. When either fails, when coming to a stop, the engine will die. For more on a torque converter and its functions, please go here

It starts up but when you put it in drive it shuts off completly


I believe your torque converter is going out. See with an automatic transmission, a torque converter does what a clutch does in a manuel transmission. It allows the engine to continue to run when the car is at a stop by diconnecting the engine from the transmission. It sounds as though your torque converter is not functioning properly and it is causing your car to stall out. Hope this helps, and let me know how it works out for you!

Transmission- no sign of slipping, automatic transmission. Fluid good and full. Transmission quit while travelling down the road. No reverse, no drive. Transmission functioned good until that point.


this is caused by your torque converter inside your gearbox being faulty when this part goes wrong it is very rare that they can be fixed so if the worst may happen you will need a new torque converter however this can be an expensive part ask your local garage for a quote
