The drainless torque converter, introduced in February, 1977, prevents the ability to completely flush the converter. To eliminate the possibility of a
repeat transmission failure, it is necessary that the torque converter be replaced if any of the following conditions exist when the transmission is being
replaced or repaired:

^

There is a heavy accumulation of dirt or contamination in the bottom of the oil pan.

^

The transmission oil is burnt or black.

^

Small particles can be seen suspended in the oil.

^

Excessive torque converter hub damage has occurred.

^

The problem is directly related to the torque converter.

In addition to the above conditions, the transmission cooler lines should be flushed thoroughly to clean the transmission's hydraulic system. (Refer to the
appropriate service manual for the recommended procedure.)
