Overheating during warm, summer months is not uncommon with any torque converter – especially if it is being pushed above the OE design specifications. Activities such as hauling heavier-than-rated loads, long-mileage trips, towing campers, boats, and racing at the track put added stress on the torque converter. These, in addition to hot summer temps, can lead to trouble fast.
Check out this list of top repairs and upgrades to ensure your torque converter can handle all those summer adventures.
