Car shuts off when I come to a stop at a stop sign, a light or backing out of the driveway and hitting the brakes

Randomly the vehicle comes to a stop when coming to a stop. I researched the issue and it seems that the 62TE TCC Solenoid becomes clogged and causes this issue. Can you please provide me with the instructions on how to change it?

Also, what other possibilities would cause this issue?

Thanks

Hi,

The torque converter clutch solenoid requires taking the transmission apart and isn't of a traditional type on this transmission. Can you explain what is happening? I'm not sure what you mean by your first sentence.

Also, have you had the computer scanned to confirm this is the issue? TCC failure will set a diagnostic trouble code. Honestly, before I would take things apart, I would have it scanned. However, that's your call.

Let me know if you have a code and exactly what is happening. I'm asking because it can be a few different issues. There is a pressure control valve, pressure control sensor, and so on. I attached a pic for you to see the valve body and components. Also, there isn't a simple torque converter clutch solenoid on this vehicle.

I hope you understand why I suggesting this. Let me know if you have questions.

Here is what happens: the car shuts off when i come to a stop at a stop sign, a light or backing out of the driveway and hitting the brakes. it happens randomly sometimes i drive around for an hour and it never happens and other times it will happen 3-4 times during an hour drive. the only error code i had recently was p0868 transmission fluid pressure low. i had a leak from the transmission pan. replaced the filter and added new fluid to the appropriate level. other than that no other codes.
regarding TCC solenoid,

i came across this info https://youtu.be/7yhjY8szdn0?t=82 where it seemed like what is happening in my case. it wasn't clear if the solenoid pack had to be removed for the TCC solenoid to be replaced. i had read other town country owners had same issue and neither dealers nor mechanics were able to replicate the issue since it happens randomly and there are no error codes. if there are other options to explore please let me know and thank you very much for your time and assistance.

Hi,

I have a feeling there is a wiring issue, but here are the directions for the valve body and related components disassembly and assembly. The attached pics correlate with the directions. Just out of curiosity, has the trouble code returned since you changed the filter and fluid?
