REMOVE TORQUE CONVERTER ASSEMBLY
Put matchmarks on the case and the torque converter assembly.
Remove the torque converter assembly from the automatic transmission assembly.
Remove the torque converter assembly from the input shaft horizontally.
INSPECT TORQUE CONVERTER ASSEMBLY
Inspect the one-way clutch.
Install SST to the inner race of the one-way clutch.
Set SST so that it fits in the notch of the torque converter hub and the outer race of the one-way clutch.
With the torque converter assembly standing on its side, check that the clutch locks when SST is turned counterclockwise and rotates freely and smoothly when SST is turned clockwise.
If the results are not as specified, clean the torque converter assembly and recheck the one-way clutch.
If the results still are not as specified even after cleaning the torque converter assembly, replace the torque converter assembly.
Determine the condition of the torque converter assembly.
|*a||Sample showing maximum allowable amount of powder in ATF|
A metallic sound is emitted from the torque converter assembly during the stall test or when the shift lever is moved to N.
The one-way clutch turns smoothly or is locked in both directions.
The amount of powder in the ATF is more than the sample shown in the illustration (refer to the sample).
Check that the following conditions are met:
During the stall test or when the shift lever is in N, metallic sounds are not emitted from the torque converter assembly.
The one-way clutch turns in one direction and locks in the other direction.
The amount of powder in the ATF is not more than the sample shown in the illustration.
If the results are not as specified, replace the torque converter assembly.
The sample illustration shows approximately 0.025 liters (0.026 US qts, 0.022 Imp. qts) of ATF taken from a removed torque converter assembly.
Replace the ATF in the torque converter assembly.
If the ATF is discolored and/or has a foul odor, stir the ATF in the torque converter assembly thoroughly and drain the ATF with the torque converter assembly facing upward.
Clean and check the oil pipe line.
If the torque converter assembly is inspected or the ATF is replaced, clean the oil pipe line.
Apply 196 kPa (2 kgf/cm2, 28 psi) of compressed air to the inlet hose.
If a large amount of powder is found in the ATF, add new ATF using a bucket pump and clean the oil pipe line again.
If the ATF is cloudy, inspect the radiator.
Prevent deformation of the torque converter assembly and damage to the oil pump gear.
|*c||Bottom is damaged|
Make sure that all of the bolts are the same length and that the specified bolts are used.
If there is any damage to the tip of a bolt for the torque converter assembly or to the bottom of a bolt hole, replace the bolt and torque converter assembly.
