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 completely, and provides a direct drive from the engine to the input shaft of the transmission. TC lockup does occur in OD, but it is a separate function. OD is achieved in the AX4N when the OD band holds the front planetary sun gear stationary. This is done by the OD servo and piston assembly, when fluid is directed there through a valve in the valve body. You could have a problem in any of those areas causing you not to have OD.

yes it will especially when the torque converter is going into lockup

Can the torque converter be emptied or does it have to be rebuilt for your 350?

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 inside lockup converters DO wear out and ultimately fail.

Will a 350 torque converter fit a 400 turbo transmission?

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 will not interchange with the TH converter.

Does a 1988 Chevrolet Cavalier have a lock up torque converter?

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.

The stator inside the torque converter directs the fluid at an angle to trans. part of the torque converter amplifying the force on the vanes.

What causes a Chevy Trailblazer transmission to overheat?

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 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 and rear end. When the lockup torque converter isn't applied, you are coupled from the engine to the rear end through fluid which can churn and overheat in steady driving in overdrive.

Is torque converter fluid filtered?

The Torque Converter uses the same fluid as the transmission. The transmission has a filter. So, in effect...the answer is "Yes" torque converter fluid is filtered. However, the torque converter has no special fluid of its own.
