Torque Converter 

  • A torque converter is a type of fluid coupling that transfers rotating power from a prime mover, like an internal combustion engine, to a rotating driven load. In a vehicle with an automatic transmission, the torque converter connects the power source to the load. It is usually located between the engine’s flex plate and the transmission. The equivalent location in a manual transmission would be the mechanical clutch
  • A torque converter is a device inside an automatic transmission housing set between the engine and the gears. Essentially an advanced hydraulic fluid coupling, the torque…
  • It has three stages of operations 1. Stall:  During stall (stop) condition of the vehicle, the engine is applying power to the impeller but the turbine cannot rotate. This happens, when the vehicle is stationary and driver has kept his foot on the brake paddle to prevent it from moving. During this condition maximum multiplication of torque takes place. As the driver removes its foot from the brake pad
