Transmission and Torque Converter

Automatic transmission fluid may leak from any component of the transmission. The transaxle is an axle which also functions as a transmission or differential. If the throttle sensors on the engine or on the transmission fail, the torque converter will malfunction. A solenoid switch locks the torque converter.

Coolant Temperature

The engine control unit and the water temperature sensor monitor the coolant temperature in the engine. The engine control unit prevents the transmission from shifting into a higher gear if the engine coolant temperature is too low.

Solenoids in Transmission

Solenoids are valves that control the flow of fluid through the transmission. The solenoids are controlled by the engine control unit. The transmission will not shift gears if the solenoids malfunction. The transmission sticks in a lower gear if the solenoids fail.
