The torque converter is only found in automatic transmissions and acts as a clutch to let your car run while at a a stop and also regulates how much fluid is transferred to the transmission as it transfers power from the engine. Often this component of the transmission is the cause of a malfunctioning transmission and must be replaced. The torque convertor takes the place of a clutch you would normally find in an manual transmission. It is connectd to the flex plate which is alike a flywheel in an automatic transmission. The torque convertor engages and dis
The main parts associated with the torque converter are the pump which is the driver of the torque converter, the stator, impeller, lock up clutch and the turbine which regulates the oil flow.The stator is between the turbine and the impeller and increases torque output by regulating fluid between the turbine and impeller. The impeller and drives the turbine. The engine powers the impeller which creates fluid pressure that rotates the turbine and that gives the transmission the torque it needs.The transmission torque converter sensor controls the electronics in the transmission and knows when gears (see planetary gear set) need to be changed for peak performance. Pulse, variable flow or low leak bleed solenoids, the main component, is a valve that controls electric current. The solenoid is one component related to the torque converter that often fails.
