Talked to a good ol' country boy at a trans shop.
Been working on trannys for years and years. I gave him the symptoms of the
problem and he said it does sound like the torque converter.
He said he even if it is just the torque it would be better to go ahead and
do a complete rebuild. Though he did say that torque converters will usually
frag into smaller parts and getting into the pan and filter.
Gave me 2 prices:
About $250 in labor to exhange out torque converter (if it is that). Does
DTT have a transferable warranty? They indicate "100% LIFETIME STATOR
WARRANTY," but nothing else on their web site.
$1100 is for a total rebuld including pulling it out and putting it back in
(only 3 days). I saw a place on ebay selling rebuilt exhanges for that much!
And it comes with 1 year ATRA warranty
He said the rebuild prices of the 47RE has dropped drastically. Well I guess
so. Last time I saw a receipt from place for $2400 2 years ago.
I am not really up to working on the trans especially since my
transportation is limited and I don't yet after 1 month still don't have all
the tools I need.
What you guys think?
