How do you change Torque converter?
major job for the inexperienced
you must first remove the transmission
then you remove torque converter from flex plate. flex plate is
equivalent to a fly wheel in a standard gear box
to replace torque converter, is another job in itself as it must
be installed loosely until transmission is installed , then
properly filled with transmission fluid then tightened properly
if not sure about all this, it is likely to not work or fail
going down the road
WAIT!, ..unbolt the torque converter from the flex plate and
remove with the transmission! If you pull the transmission
separately, you risk damaging the pump in the transmission!
Same applies going back in, the torque converter needs to be
meshed into the front pump of the transmission before putting into
the car. Then once the transmission is bolted to the engine, THEN
you bolt the torque converter to the flex plate.
If you do as described in the first answer, you will very likely
end up replacing the entire transmission!
This job requires experience and special tools, not for the
