how much will it cost to replace a torque converter
This was answer to check pressure of
transmission. Inspection of out line
form trainsmission to inline to
radiator slightly crimped..
So did the crimped line burn out the transmission due to no cooling, or have you got that far yet?
The crimped line did allow fluid to radiator and did not drivef far.When I put in gear idle increases as if vacuum component is needed to complete the engaging of gear in. The same as when I first started..First time I blew out the radiator not able to get any gears I replaced radiator drained over filled transmission and some leaked.using Lucas transmission conditioning fluid worked and it stooped.When I shut car off not able to engage and gears.I was thinking if I drain fluid again and use Lucas treatment again just like before it will work. If it does what could it be that needs to be replaced?
The idle increase is normal, the ECM is getting the signal that it is in gear so it automatically bumps up the idle to compensate for the load, but in your case the load is nonexistent. Still sounds like the tranny is bad to me.
