You just give it a little gas car accelerates fine but in gear idling with the brake on it feels like the torque converter isn't letting the engine free wheel as it should. I don't know what the converter is rated at or out of since the trans and converter came from 2 different places. Does it sound like that would be a possibility or I may be way off. The trans has been in the truck for 3 years and it has always done it but I'm going to pull the motor and want to fix the trans. isssue if I can while it's out. Thanks, Eric
lets get back to basics here before you gop tearing into this thing when it may not be necassary.
whats the year of truck the trans came out of? does it have a blue plug on the drivers side of the case?
did you check the mounts prior to install? what trans was bolted up to the inline before installing the trans out of the truck? and what kind of car did you install this in?
did you know that when installing a converter for a rebuilt trans that has an inline that it takes the same converter as a v-8?? p/n: gm 350 from transtar.
the v-6's depending, usually take the same converter as well, but have seen some come with special hi stall converters depending on the application.
now i have an inline 6 250 and its got a 700R4 in it but the same theory still applies to having a broken trans mount. ive had the same problem with mine, and every time mine gets rough at idle in gear, its had a broken trans mount...
and the stall in my 700 is higher than the stalls listed in the pics ive posted below with the exception of the h.p. converters... check all your mounts out
