Original automatic transmission was slipping more so in upper gears 3 and 4. Bought rebuilt transmission from Carquest, who purchases from company called proven value. I installed transmission myself. Converter was installed so that moved freely after tranny bolted to engine. Checked out 1/8" between coverter and flex plate when converter seated completely. used washers on bolts to converter so that would not dimple converter. dowl pins were in engine. replaced radiator instead of flush


I have read your post and here is my opinion, if you flushedr the cooler and the lines properly and used the correct fluid to fill the trans and the level is correct then you have an internal loss of pressure to the forward/direct clutch pack, the ca ... Toyota Previa

I am installing an m52 engine from a 1996 bmw 328i into a 1998 bmw 528i, but the torque converter and flywheel lock up when I tighten the outer engine to trans bolts. If I loosen the bolts, they move freely again. When the bolts are tightened until they stop, there's about an eighth of an inch left between the engine and trans, but no play or movement. I separated them several times to make sure the torque converter is all the way in, and it is. I'm stumped because everything else seems the same


Hi! If, as you say, your torque converter is fully engaged, then the only thing I can think is that the unit doesn't match! It may be that the dimensions between the two are different - meaning that when you try to fully tighten the bolts, the 1st mo ... Cars & Trucks

My 2002 MDX was diagnosed with a faulty torque converter last week. Service advisor said that I need to get the converter as well as the transmission replaced now at a total cost of $5k, because the faulty torque converter could have sent shards of metal into my transmission. After doing some research I found that Acura sent out a technical service bulletin in 2005 that a faulty torque converter could be causing a shudder btwn 30-40mph (TSB 03-024) and eventually causing transmission fail
