Best Answer

I had a 92 Chevy Beretta, wich has pretty much the same transmission and same problems. After replacing the Lock out solinoid 3 times a friend of mine who is a mechanic let me in on a secret. Disconnect it. The wiring harness for it should be located on the front of the tranny. It will not affect the performance of the car, but may lower you gas milage by about a mile city/highway. If you need any other help, My name is Dominick and can be reached at

92 vigor im having your transmission rebuilt your mechanic says that you also have to have the tur converter replaced What is that?

The torque convertor acts as an automatic clutch for the transmission. If you are replacing the transmission, I would recommend replacing the convertor too, especially if the trans fluid is burnt or contaminated. If you have a manual transmission, run, there is no torque convertor :)

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.

The lockup should be farily smooth, if you hear a grinding noise, you have somethng wrong with the torque convertor or transmisssion. If the car has a lot 150k or so it's time to see a good transmission shop.

What fluid goes in a torque conyerter And how much?

The torque convertor uses transmission fluid and is filled by the transmission's internal pump. When you start out with a new convertor, it's a good idea to put a quart of fluid in before installing it on the transmission. When the transmission dipstick shows full, the convertor is also full. An empty torque convertor holds several quarts, depending on the size.
