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.
