    How do you know when your torque converter is going out? Is there a way to check it when its gone out? (other than the K5 dosn't move).
    Thanks

    Well, according to Steve, Dr. 700r4, you can't really tell when its going. But said you'll know when it is completely gone. Didn't say how other than the tranny won't work. I asked him the same question, and he told me to do a "complete" fluch and filter change, and if that didn't fix my problem to call him in the morning.

    Don't you buy no ugly truck!

    Last night I posted the following, was hoping for some help.
    I tried all gears even reverse- nothing. The fluid level is good and no burnt smell. I put it in park and it locks in place. Last week I started hearing noises from the transmission almost like a low gear sound when in 4 wheel drive low. A friend said it might be the torque converter? Looking for some help to narrow it down so I can figure out what to do next. Running stock 350 with 700R and 31X10.5 Thank you.
