SOURCE: i believe my torque converter is out in my oldmobile

Well to replace the TC, you have to unbolt the transmissions bell housing from the rear of the engine. Then, it's rather simple from there on in. I'd suggest a full manual for the car so you could know what you're looking at.

Either way, without a good selection of tools, and the right spot to work on it, it's probably better just to have a mechanic look at it.

As for the TC actually going out, it's not highly likely that it would. You may just have a really clogged fluid filter and be in desperate need of a transmission flush/change. Also, the valves may be bad as well, which still isn't much of a hassle to replace if you know what you're doing. I've seen hundreds of automatic transmissions go out in my life, but only a few have ever been a direct result of the TC.

SOURCE: Transmission repairs

It sounds as if there is no oil pressure in the transmission, it is possible you have no fitted the convertor correctly. if it is not fully engaged into the transmission oil pump it will not drive. of course the other thing could be the transmission has a fault. I am of course assuming you have filled the transmission with the correct type and quantity of oil. if you have pull the trans, and check the convertor has not damaged the oil pump,

SOURCE: lost drive in auto gearbox

Does it move but the speedo doesnt work properly or at all? Unusual or no gear changes? Suspect the Vehicles Speed Sensor (VSS) on the gearbox.

If it doesnt move in any gear check the autobox fluid level, failing that get it checked for copdes, could be a few things

SOURCE: 1998 isuzu trooper torque on demand lights go off

It is Torque On Demand. When you are stopped there is no need for the front end to be engaged, no demand. Once you start moving, the lights should begin working as the demand for four wheel drive engagement increases, if the conditions require four wheel drive. It's the way the system works. Enjoy!

Will not move in any gear and also wouldnt work in forward or reverse

If its automatic. Torque converter consists of 3 components. Impeller(bowl like dome with fins inside it for fluid displacement), turbine(same as above), stator(located in the centre; like a fans blades). Fluid flows and reaches optimal flow to give drive to the wheels. If there is no fluid, then there is no drive. Check gearbox fluid level. Or maybe the gearbox broke, or the diff broke or a cv shaft or a cv joint.

Torque converter clutch stuck on

The torque converter clutch solenoid is controlled by the TCM so run the fault codes first/. If you take the solenoid out of the system there is every possibility that the vehicle will not move and if it does the economy will be crap. Best fix the thing properly to start with.

Torque converter making noise

drop off the cover under the torque converter and inspect the flex plate that the converter is bolted to. look for cracks in the plate around the bolts . undo the bolts and move the torque converter back towards the gear box and look for cracks around the flywheel bolts.. If all ok then do everything up and have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal mechanical failure. Have this done at an accredited auto transmission shop ( not the local mechanic) and as him what the results are and the possible solution. Remember to ask how much to fix the problem parts before you accept that it needs a new box

What is the transmission model of a 2001 4WD Isuzu Fuego. Its not responding to drive and reverse anymore. We think that its best to look for a surplus transmission while we figure out a temporary solution...

run fault codes and look for a faulty TCM unit. IT controls the torque converter clutch which may be where the problem lies as if the torque converter servo is not working then you will have no input into the transmission.

Started make a whinning sound i pulled over then it would not move. 2002 84,000 miles and was not acting funny before

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If the engine works but won't move then the problem will be on the transmission. Looks like you have a faulty torque converter. If the torque converter is faulty the car will not shift properly or won't move at all. I strongly suggest that you replace the torque converter and transmission fluid.

Hope this information was helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
