Yet another problem. Well, the car sat in a field for over a year, so some problems are to be expected.
This one is like this: The TCC (torque convertor clutch) locks up at about 45mph, which is about right. But when it does, the car commences to jerk and chug. You can tell it'* the TCC because a light touch on the brakes disengages it, RPMs jump by about 200 to 300, and as long as you keep your foot lightly on the brake, everything smooths out. Otherwise it'* like the TCC is engaging and disengaging very quickly. Transmission guys--is a new TCC solenoid called for? And how hard are they to replace? I probably need to replace the trans filter anyway. Anybody have pictures of the trans with the filter out and the TCC visible? It'* about time for a Dexron shampoo
