Torque converter?

Default RE: Torque converter?

Alright, recently my car (1998 Honda Accord V6) has been revving up to about 4000+ RPMs when shifting. My engine light turned on, and I went to AutoZone, and the guy was no help, so I went to Advanced Auto Parts, and the guys told me that it was a P0740, just like they said at AutoZone, but they elaborated. Apparently it reads "Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction." That doesn't mean much to me because I know s**t about transmissions. Anything else, I can repair. Anyway, last week it started making a shuddering sound while in park and neutral ONLY. At first I thought it was the belt tensioner because it looked like it was wobbling (it's apparently warped), but then I got to thinking, "it's only in park and neutral, so it's probably related to my torque converter problem." So, it sounds like what you're describing. A shuddering noise in park and neutral, and my engine code is something about the torque converter. So, I'd listen to the guy. At least take it to a transmission specialist (NOT COTTMAN), and have them take a look at it. That should only cost $30 or so. Hope I kinda helped.
