I am thinking about buying a 98 mercury mystique V-6 automatic (CD4E) with 115,000 miles.
Owner says the car was diagnosed with torque converter stuck on (symptom was stalling) ( I don't know what codes were set) This Ford Dealer recommended replacing the converter and TCC solenoid pack.
I have a few Questions:
What sensor inputs does the CD4E transaxle use to control torque converter lockup/release, VSS, turbine speed etc?? Can any of these cause a torque converter stuck on condition??
What is the possibility the valve body is involved with this problem?
Can the TCC lockup be disabled (unplugged??)long enough to drive the car 30 miles to my home and to verify if stalling is due to TCC stuck on?
Thanks in advance, gary
