Hello .. thanks for the donation .. much appreciated
Torque convertor can only really be checked off the vehicle !
NOTE:Torque converter is a sealed unit and must be serviced as complete assembly. Perform following tests to check converter condition. Torque converter and oil cooler lines must be thoroughly cleaned and flushed if transaxle fluid is contaminated.
One-Way Clutch Test
Insert One-Way Clutch Test Turner (09351-32014) into inner race of one-way clutch. Install Stator Stopper (09351-32020) into notch of converter hub and outer race of one-way clutch. See Fig. 4 .
With torque converter standing on edge, clutch should lock when turned counterclockwise and should rotate freely and smoothly when turned clockwise. If one-way clutch fails test in either direction, clean converter. Retest clutch. If clutch fails test, replace converter.
you will need to replace the bad shift solonoid .. a transmission shop will be able to diagnose exactly which solonoid is at fault .. the solonoids are located inside the transmission on the valve body and can be replaced wihout removing transmission from the vehicle !
Hope this helps
