Question is vague...howeer on the 2003 taurus it is very common for the torque convertor splines to strip out and give the vehicleno movement. the quickest way to identify this anomoly is to check the transmission fluid level, the fluid level will be raised to an extreme level on nidicator as fluid will tend to blow up the dipstick when this occurs..hope this helps..your thumbs up is appreciated...please post a question if you need more info

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..

P0740 honda odyssey


P0740 Honda - Transmission Lock-Up Control System Fault Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness is open or shorted
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection

Tech notes
On some Honda vehicles the P0740 code may be set by an overheating torque converter problem which is caused by an insufficient flow to the torque converter release circuit.

P0740 Honda Description
The torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, with the gear in D4, by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the vehicle speed and the Engine Control Module (ECM). Lock-up piston operation will then be controlled. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, the torque converter lockup clutch will engage creating a 1 to 1 RPM ratio between the transmission input shaft and the rotational speed of the torque converter.
Lock-up operation, however, is prohibited when A/T fluid temperature is too low.
When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly. If there is a big jump in engine speed, there is no lock-up.

Torque converter


Transmission will be fine. The torque converter is the oil filled automatic clutch that transmits power for engine to gearbox. If it only does it between second and third, then the transmission is faulty, not the torque converter. You want both changing. The money is in the labour, so economically it makes sense to do both. At 91,000 miles, you need a new car.

Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Stuck On


the torque converter clutch circuit is inside the torque converter and is not something u can repair, the torque converter must be cut apart and rebuilt by companies who specialize in this, so all you can do is pull the transmission out of the car and replace the torque converter with a rebuilt or new unit.

MY 2003 ACURA SE LIGHT CAME ON MY NEIGHBOR HAD A TESTER IT SHOWED P0740 TCC MALFUNCTION WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?


Torque Converter Clutch. It has to do with the transmission. It could be a small issue such as a trans. fluid and filter change. Or could be the solenoid failing. At worst, the torque converter is shot...transmission failure.
