I'm not saying that the torque converter is the problem. What you have to do now is get a proper diagnosis. DO you have any CEL light on?

If you have a Ammco Transmission shop they will be able to scan the computer and find out just what the problem is. It's quite possible that they can fix it without pulling the transmission.

What happened to the topic you were on with the 98 Honda jerking when put into gear???? Did the shift solenoid fix it or was it something else???? I hate it when I am following a topic and it gets hijacked with another question and the one you are following just ends!!!!! Its like watching a movie and it quits halfway through and starts playing a diffrent movie which will never finish ether!!!!!!!!!
