Having Issues Pulling Your Load? Stock May Not Be Enough

Torque converter

If you drive a lightweight car, truck, or SUV, the torque converter you have installed is probably just fine. For those of you with more heavy duty applications, like high horsepower setups or towing rigs, the stock converter may not be enough. At Community Car Care in Alexandria, KY, we can help with that.

Torque converters, like any other component on your vehicle, are prone to failure. The fins in the turbines can separate, bearings can wear out, lockup piston linings can fail, and warpage or cracking can occur. Typically these things happen when your vehicle is under a heavier load than it’s necessarily designed for - which means even a new replacement converter is prone to the same failure down the road. Since any sort of change in the internals of your torque converter can have a drastic effect on performance, it’s important to make sure you have a converter that’s up to the task.

One way to remedy this issue is with a heavy-duty torque converter. There are triple disc applications that can handle whatever you throw at them, and keep performing for years to come. Many of these have better bearings, riveted internals, and brazed turbines as well, ensuring your converter stays durable and is well prepared for whatever you need to do. If your converter is failing, or you know you’re operating outside the parameters of the torque converter you have installed, a heavy duty converter is definitely worth considering - especially since your stock one can fail without warning, leaving you stranded at the worst possible moment.
