Where is the torque converter clutch solenoid on a 1989 Olds Cutlass Calais 3.3L V6?
the tcc solonoid is located under the side pan however I highly doubt the solonoid is the prob
Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness is open or shorted Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection Low transmission fluid level Dirty transmission fluid Could be a problem with the harness to the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoid, the TCC solenoid connector or the TCC solenoid it self.
If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, then the torque converter clutch is probably sticking. The clutch is controlled by a solenoid, that moves it back and fourth. The clutch material can get stuck to the inside of the converter and stall the engine. Have the transmission flushed, and if the problem persists, then have the solenoid replaced.
Its simple. Get your car up on ramps and look for an electrical wiring harness that goes into the tranny. Usually it is a two or three wire connector. Simply disconnect it and that should solve your shift problem "if" that "IS" the problem. In other words if your TCC is bad than disconnecting it will make your tranny operate without lock up. At worst you will lose 1 MPG.
the TCC,, torque converter clutch,,,, used on tree speed transmission in the 80's GM and on 4 speed automatics, the solenoid reads the speed of the transmission (car) and sends the signal to the computer which identifies that the car has reached proper crusing speed and is not under heavey load (full throttle) it then "locK" the torque converter to not allow any slippage like a standard automatic torque converter, basically making the torque converter…
Code P1744 means that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) unsucessfully trying to engage the torque converter clutch 5 consecutive times. The torque converter may not engage if one or more of the following conditions exsist: *Stuck converter regulator valve *Stuck solenoid regulator valve *Stuck bypass clutch control valve *Worn pump shatft or damaged seals *Incorrect Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoid *Incorrect or damaged wiring harness *Incorrect gear ratio
Transmission Lock-Up Control System Fault. Can be caused by: Low transmission fluid level Dirty transmission fluid Faulty torque converter cluth solenoid valve Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness open or shorted Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection Can also be overheating torque converter due to insufficent flow to the torque converter release cirsuit. When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly…
Hi have a 2000 automatic Astra and approx once a day when slowing down it just cuts out sometimes struggles to start straight up again but never struggles starting in morn any ideas please?
The torque converter clutch is probably sticking. The clutch is controlled by a solenoid, that moves it back and fourth. The clutch material can get stuck to the inside of the converter and stall the engine. This problem can be worsened by heat. Have the transmission flushed, and if the problem persists, then have the solenoid replaced.
