It can be done but a word of caution is thgat if the converter went out it may have sent small bits of metal into your tranny.....so it may be risky to just replace the converter...........

When starting out tranny does not want to shift from first to second gear, then it does shift. then when coming to a stop torque converter shutters.


This indicates the transmission is leaking internally - it cannot maintain line pressure to shift. If it shifts out of first after about a minute of driving it means that the seals inside the case and the band brakes are wearing out. I went through that and found it wise to install a rebuilt unit - if it is a front wheel drive unit then the transmission and differential are in one compact unit. If the torque converter growls or groans it means the front oil pump seals and pump are wearing out.

theres a good chance that it broke the main shaft in the tranny from to much pressure forcing it back, be honest i would look for a good reman tranny and if your having problems with the starter to close to the torque converter they make shims for the starter to avoid that problem.

I would have it checked out by an ASE certified Transmission shop. The growling may be the begining of problems with the torque converter or one of the planetary gear sets. Good luck

99 expedition trans feels like it engages but will not move.fluid level is ok


Check out these things: rear wheels locked up because of emergency brakes coming apart inside rear drum/rotor.

Rear axle broke

4x4 controls switched half on-half off.

Torque converter broke

All of these problems will not make much in the way of noise. You will need both rear wheels off ground and trans in neutral to turn the rear wheels. If they turn its likely the torque converter.
