1990 acura legend sedan torque converter how do you disconnect the lockup part of the converter it locks up too soon?
hi, I am researching the same thing.
89 accura legend torque lock wont unlock.
I have found what the solenoid looks like and it has a plug.
I am thinking about unplugging it and see it that helps.
but I am unsure how this will effect the rest of the system.
Also it might be operated by a relay somewhere ( havn,t found this out yet)
Where is the lock up solenoid on a axn4 transmission it is not getting a signal and it will not shift in to over drive?
The lockup solenoid does not control OD shift. The lockup solenoid controls torque convertor lockup. Torque converter lockup isn't a gear at all, but a fuel saving function that kicks in when you are cruising, which is a clutch in the torque converter that locks down and overrides the fluid coupling so you dont loose engine engine torque due to the normal fluid coupling of the torque converter. In effect, it overrides the torque converter…
You can empty it out and change the fluid if there is nothing wrong with it and the stock stall speed will still work with the engine you will be putting in front of it. It's basically a fluid coupling. Since it's full of fluid and the fluid does most of the work, there is very, VERY little wear inside a converter. The only exception is if you have a lockup torque converter. The clutches…
If you're talking about a TH400 transmission, yes... the TH350 torque converter is one inch smaller in diameter than the TH400 torque converter (12" vs 13"), and you'll have to make sure the holes on the flexplate line up (or drill them for both patterns). You'll get a bit more stall out of the 350 converter. If you're talking about the 700R4, the answer is going to be no.... that uses a lockup converter, which…
Yes, both the Iron Duke 2.5L engines and X-VIN 2.8L engines have lockup torque converters. The 2.5L engine was equiped with a TH125 transmission that had a 3 speed + lockup TCC, and the 2.8L engine was equipped with a 440T4 transmission that had a 4 speed + lockup TCC, being much stronger than the former.
Three problems I know of are one not changing and/or checking fluid level and if you do alot of hauling the more weight the warmer the fluid get and finally the more shifting you do (mostly city driving) the warmer the fluid gets.ni Make sure your lockup torque converter is functioning. It has to work in overdrive or it will overheat. When your torque converter locks up, you have a mechanical link between the engine…
How many solenoids does a 2000 ram 1500 have in a 2 wheel drive automatic transmission with a lockup converter?
There are four. Starter solenoid, is built on the starter. Governor pressure solenoid, overdrive solenoid, and torque converter solenoid are on the valve body inside the transmission. There are four.

What would cause an automatic transmission to delay downshift when slowing down The transmission allows the rpm's to drop as low as 200 before shifting nearly causing the engine to die?
If it jerks then dies, it could be the lockup torque converter is stuck and whenever you put it in drive it's "direct drive" without the advantage of a torque converter. That only applies if the engine is running well and there are no other symptoms. As always, check for a computer diagnostic code using a code scanner.
Hey I am replacing the engine in a 98 dodge ram 5.9L How do you disconnect the flywheel from the torque converter the flywheel is in the tranny housing by 2 inches and I cannot separate them?
The Torque Converter is part of the transmission, not part of the engine. The torque converter needs to come off with the transmission. You need to remove the starter to access the torque converter bolts/nuts and separate it from the flex plate. Besides loosing all of the fluid in the torque converter, you stand to damage converter seals and/or the pump if the converter isn't properly installed in the transmission.
When install and automatic transmission in a truck do you need to put the torque convertible in the fly wheel first or you need to attached to the transmition first?
Put tranny up then install the torque converter to tranny first , NOTE : Make sure when installing the torque converter to the tranny that you can only slide your middle finger in bettween the tranny and torque converter , if the torque converter is not all the way in, the torque converter will tare up the tranny shaft.
