Shop Torque Converters for your 2011-2016 Ford 6.7L Powerstroke. Symptoms of a bad torque converter can include slipping, overheating, contaminated transmission fluid, increased stall speed, shuddering during acceleration, and unusual sounds. Some items that often fail include the torque converter clutch or clutch solenoid, as well as needle bearings and seals that can become worn. For performance and competition applications upgraded torque converters are available. The use of forged billet steel for items such as the front housing provide improved support for the internal lockup clutch, allowing it to remain completely flat under all condition. This results in improved lockup performance and less slippage. These performance converters can also include a long list of upgraded internals such as a stronger turbine and impellers, additional friction surfaces/area, improved clutch materials, Torrington roller bearing construction, tig welded pump and turbine fins, as well as Billet stator cap and apply pistons. A torque converter is a fluid coupler that transfers the engine's power to the transmission. The primary components that make up the converter assembly include the impeller, stator, turbine, clutch, and front cover. The impeller is driven by the engine and acts as a centrifugal pump. The impeller forces fluid outward toward the turbine, which is connected to the transmission's input shaft, causing the turbine to spin.
