I'll be the first one to admit that I dont know much about automatic transmissions (or manual ones for that matter), but I"ve read that the locking and unlocking of the torque converter can feel like the trans shifting.
I was wondering at what speeds does the trans actually shift and where is the torque converter locking and unlocking?
I'm just trying to know a little more bout what the car is doing as I'm driving it.
Seems like I'm getting into 3rd around 40 but I don't know. Really I'm just kinda clueless HA!.
Depending on throttle position and load, the 1-2 shift will occur around 15mph and the 2-3 shift around 25mph. The torque converter clutch will engage around 35-50 mph, depending on load, with the engine at operating temp.
