HELP! Code 39: torque converter clutch error, whats it mean?
I am very close to purchasing a pretty nice 1989 Bonneville. I own an AutoXray code reader that will read both OBD I & II equipped cars. When I checked the car out, I asked the owner if he would mind if I scan it for trouble codes. Only one came up: "torque converter clutch error 39"
I guess my question is what exactly does this mean? When I drove the car, I didn't notice any slipping, but then again I've never driven an 89 Bonneville, so I had nothing to compare to as normal. Does this code spell major trouble? Should I avoid buying this car?
Thanks in advance!
