The cause may be that during the rebuild process, the TCC PWM solenoid was not replaced (figure 1), as the symptom mimicked that of a worn out TCC regulator bore. A closer inspection of the solenoid snout (figure 2), shows that a hairline crack caused a loss of solenoid pressure acting on the TCC regulator valve causing the Torque Converter to slip. Thanks go to John Dye from Dye’s Auto and Diesel Repair for the discovery. A new TCC PWM Solenoid (part number 24207054) costs approximately $30.00.
