OK I just installed a Turbo 350 and just got asked if I put a quart of transmission fluid in my torque converter. Well I didn't and I need to know if any one out there knows if that is going to ruin my new Transmission and Torque Converter. Any thoughts would be great. Just not sure if I need to pull it back out. I am kinda hoping I don't since it is 4 wheel drive. Thanks in advance guys. Also sorry for the newbie question.

No need to remove it.
Add 4 quarts before you start it and fill to the full mark after it is running.

Its definetly recommended to add some fluid to the tc to lube the stater clutch how ever it probably won't be the end of the world with out it.

Quality reman converters have pre-lubed internals.

I am sure some companies do not pre-lube

You should be fine. When ever adding a new converter its always a good idea to add some tranny fluid in the converter
