Service engine light and ABS light on had tested results state torque converter

Asked by Jul 30, 2015 at 06:52 PM about the 1997 GMC Jimmy 4 Dr SL 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Check engine light and ABS light will not go off and stay off. Had the car checked at 2
different places and both said it was the torque converter. Is there a plug and/or sensor
that would cause the problem and can be easily repaired or replaced.

take it to a dedicated transmission shop and have it checked for free..


It sounds like the torque converter clutch in the transmission isn't operating correctly. Most likely the torque converter clutch solenoid is bad. It's a common GM problem. My Sister had her's replaced on her '93 Cavalier about 15 years ago at the dealer. It was a $400 repair back then. The ABS problem is probably a wheel speed sensor and not related to the torque converter clutch (check engine light) trouble code at all. HTH. -Jim
