I call BS on this, how can you tell if a torque converter is bad by listening and not noticing it in the ride? Plus, he says that its like $3000 to replace! He wants to take that much off of the price he offers me!!! Robery!
So, couple questions, can you tell this much from listening and is $3000 way to much for a Torque Converter replacement? And, can you evaluate the health of the torque converter easily or do you have to do some deep diagnostid?
I think I know the answers, but would greatly value all of your input.
