Re: Torgue converter question
A auto tranny requires a torque converter, everyone has one... Think of it as performing the same job as a clutch in a stick shift. When you slow down it slips and when stopped it disengages the engine and tranny. If it wasn't there, the car would stall everytime you came to a stop and would jump forward when starting the car.
I'd guess the V8 models have a different tranny, if they are the only ones with this problem. The V6 WK had the same tranny as the SRT8 and the V8s had a different tranny 5-45RFE like the WJ. Like I say though, I know nothing about the issue or what tranny is in what. Check WK2jeeps.com?
Hope that helps.
