So sorry that I can't get you more info. This is my son's vehicle and I am trying to do research for him. This vehicle is in Carrollton Ky. and I am in Indianapolis. One more question, if it is the torque converter, would it be best to replace tranny?
Yes if the torque converter is bad you are better to repalce the entire transmission .If its just the lock up solenoid he will just need to replace the solenoid pack.These are what need to be checked next for this issue.If he can get the number codes that would pinpoint the issue .After the excellent service rating you can add to the question for no further charge.Hoped this helped .
