Re: Torque Convertor

Hi
There are 2 issues I've come across regarding torque converters on Explorers. One is the solenoid that engages/disengages the converter fails, and the second is the torque converter clutch fails internally. Both of these will make your Overdrive light flash at some stage and will leave very specific codes in the control module. The effect of a converter that stays engaged all the time is similar to pressing the brakes in a car with a manual transmission that's still in gear, car stalls. Because most converter clutches only engage in top gear and above a certain speed, you can probably drive your car without stalling if you turn the Overdrive off. Hook up a scanner to the car and see what codes come up and go from there. Post the codes here if you want more info. cheers

Re: Torque Convertor

Hi
So you're running a dual fuel setup? Well, if the problem happens regardless of which fuel you selected, I would suspect the ignition system (leads, plugs and coil, in that order). If it only happens on petrol more than likely it will be blocked injectors or filter (petrol crystalizes inside the injectors if you never use them) and if it happens only on gas check for air and vacuum leaks or dirt inside one of the jets of the converter. Is there an engine light on? How many miles has this car done?
