A friend's car is doing the classic TCC lockup thing where the
converter doesn't disengage from lockup and it wants to die at stop
It is a '92 Century, 3300, 117K, and it's a 3 speed automatic, (not
overdrive which I thought was surprising).
Is there an external electrical connector which can be unplugged to
disable the TCC lockup, or can it be otherwise disabled pending the
actual replacement of the solenoid?
Cut 1 wire and try it; if wrong one, splice back securely. Continue
until the lockup no longer attempts to engage. (Find it on 1st
attempt=clean and honest living. On 2nd attempt=average old guy. On 3rd
attempt=unclean and less-than-honest living. Only you will know wherein you
lie!) HTH, s
