Can a bad converter damage a transmission?

Triangle Transmissions offer advanced and top of the range mechanical solutions.

A converter transfers rotating power from the prime mover and ensures that the internal combustion engine is functioning effectively. The converter is usually located between the engine’s flex plate and the transmission.

The transmission mechanism can be affected by the converter through the pressurizing of the automatic transmission fluid,this makes it possible for the shift transmission to change the gears effortlessly.

Torque converters enhance the operating range and driveshaft motion of the engine. Transfer power of the transmission can also be affected through issues such as overheating, shifting problems, slipping between the gears as well as higher stall speeds.

The cost implications of choosing to use a faulty converter would be far greater than maintaining the functionality of the torque converter. Additional problems can also include poor acceleration power and excessive fuel mixture leakage as well as misfire from plugs and wires.

A converter will keep the engine from running smoothly, by choosing to install a faulty converter in conjunction with the transmission runs the risk of damaging the entire engine and subsequently, the durability of the vehicle in the long run.
