Torque Converter 98 Taurus

Sorry for the new threead but the other one is kinda finished and I still needed an opinion. They said the code on my Taurus was the Torque Converter but can that cause the engine to run rough and even die? When I started driving it though the rough running smoothed out and it only died while in drive.

If the torque convertor stays locked when you stop, it's like stopping a stck shift without pushing the clutch pedal down.

Could that be an electrical problem causing that, providing that's what was happening?

It can be the solenoid sticking in the valve body. It can also be the torque convertor itself.

Re: Torque Converter 98 Taurus

I had this problem when my brother gave me my car. Took me 2 days to change out the solenoid and that fixed the problem. Solenoid cost about $30. Somehow I managed to put the car in gear (with the engine running at high RPM two days after I changed the solenoid. YUP, I kissed the new solenoid goodbye.

The good thing was I was able to change out the solenoid again in 3 hours. Yes experience is a great teacher.
