Where is the torque converter lockout solonoid located on a 1994 dodge ram 1500 2wd 318 and does it require transmission removal for replacement?
the solonoid is located inside the transmission, once the pan is removed i believe that it is located on the passenger side close to the front. I would find exact instructions but the back yard mechanic can do this with basic tools. If you're interested it shouldn't be too hard to pull the pan and look (only 2 solonoids inside with electrical connections - 1 for converter and 1 for o/d).
How can you put transmission oil back into the torque converter of a 1996 Geo Tracker after replacing engine?
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.

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.
