THE TORQUE CONVERTER WILL ONLY LOCK-UP WHEN COLD.

1985 Chevrolet Chevette • 35,000 miles

Hello. I've had the car for a while now and I noticed that the torque converter actually locks-up when cold, but not when hot. After driving a few minutes, it will stop locking up. Where should I start looking?

Thanks : )

Hello!

I was never able to fix the problem, but I tried spraying some contact cleaner in the switch and it doesn't work anymore, even when it's cold, so I guess that was the culprit! I just can't seem to find that part anywhere.
