Transmission Vibration and Noise[edit | edit source]

Vibration[edit | edit source]

Transmission and torque converter are not usual culprits for vibration. Check brakes , bearings, joints first.

When it is the culprit, usually it's an unbalanced/poorly mounted torque converter or faulty output shaft.

Noise[edit | edit source]

Should be directly connected to speed and conditions

Any condition with engine running points to the oil pump.

Noises based in a single gears relate to a band or clutch problem.
