i just picked up this 94 lightning a few days ago. has 133,000 miles and runs and drives fine aside from needing radius arm bracket and bushings. i have noticed that it seems like it never locks the torque converter when driving. haven't driven anywhere but around town so havent really been over 45 with it. check engine light is off. any advice is appreciated thanks
Yes and the OD off light normally flashes. However, if the converter wont lock and there is no code,it's possible that the converter is bad: the clutch apply piston has failed. I would first find a way to verify if the ECU is commanding the clutch to lock before replacing the converter.
alright well i believe it is trying to lock because the rpms do rise a lil bit when i just barley touch the brake. so i am assuming it is just old and wore out that it really wont hold anymore... oh well. i do have an oil pan to put on it anyways so ill just search around for a new converter to put in when i get around to the pan. thanks for the help. all is appreciated
