Common Transmission Problem #17: Torque converter

Have you ever wondered what keeps car running while stopped at a red light? The torque converter helps keep cars idle by handling how much fluid will be passed on to the transmission. Problems with this system usually result from too little or too much fluid passing to the transmission. Drivers will notice this if gears suddenly slip and there is an acceleration loss.

Shuddering is a symptom that appears quickly. If you ever feel a sudden jerk with your vehicle that feels like driving over a rough spot on the road, odds are it is a torque converter problem.
