Having a properly-working torque converter is something you need so your car’s transmission will work. If it is not working correctly, there are some signs that you will notice. Here is a list of some of the most common ways to tell if you have a bad torque converter:
If the gears in your car’s transmission are slipping, then you more than likely have a bad converter. There likely isn’t enough pressure to control the flow of the hydraulic transmission fluid. 2. Your Car doesn’t Accelerate Properly
A bad converter will cause your car to not accelerate properly. This is because a torque converter controls hydraulics and if it’s bad, it won’t allow enough pressure to go to the transmission and this causes the car to accelerate poorly.
If a torque converter is bad, a car will have a hard time shifting gears. You will also hear it straining between gears.
If your transmission appears to surge even if you are driving your car at a sustained speed, then it may have a bad torque converter. It is time to get it checked.
A bad torque converter also makes the transmission lag. This is due to not enough transmission fluid and thus the car doesn’t start up properly.
