Problems with the lockup


Drive like you stole it!

I had my lockup disconnected since I owned the car cause it would stick. I replaced the torque convertor and pluged it back in and I had to disconnet it by the time I got home from work. It would stick when I would come to a stop and it would shift funny. What else controls the lockup?
The Torque Convertor Control Solenoid controls the lockup. They go bad frequently and cause the problems you described. Check the archives - I'm sure there's tons of posts on it. Slang is "TCC". They're around $35 and still available from the dealer.

I agree with Jim. That is the most likely cause of your problem and it's easily replaced by removing the pan.

Here's a detailed guide with pictures, from the technical articles, on replacing the TCC. Its a fairly simple procedure.

I used that site when I replaced my TCC. It was the first time that I had tried this. The technical article walked me through it. I printed it out and had it with me to refer to.
