    Torque converter squeals like mad when I put it in gear. It's just fine in park, but when I put it in reverse, screeeeech!!! Gets louder as the RPM's go up too. Just wanna see if anybody agrees that it's the torque converter and not something more serious, like the front pump of the tranny?

    hey, if u do a search u can see exaclty what happened to mine. it was doing that and throwing sparks along with the squeal. I ended up going through 6 TC's before i replaced everything once again and it ended up being a cracked flexplate. the flext plate was allowing it to move forward and back and hit on the tranny. good luck
