If you unhook the TCC Solenoid on a 1993 Z-24 Cavalier transmission and leave it unhooked will it do any damage?

No, it will only disable the lockup feature of the torque converter. The TCC locks the car into gear at higher speeds, as if it were a manual transmission, to eliminate slippage and save gasoline.

I tottaly agree.Less gas mileage Without lock in,the engine will be running a hirer RPM'S

A bad transmission solenoid will cause hard shifting and can eventually damage the unit. You should change the solenoid if it is bad.

You will get lower gas mileage. The tcc solenoid locks up the transmission to get better gas mileage at higher speeds. I suppose it will wear the transmission slightly faster as well, but the main effect is lower gas mileage.

The 1997 Cavalier has two motor mounts, as well as a transmission mount. If the mounts are broken the motor can move around and cause damage to components under the hood.

your torque converter solenoid is located in the valve body of the transmission. you have to drop the pan on the tranny but you really better know what your doing or you can do alot of damage
