    I have made earlier post about the 91 DOHC Automatic that starts then
    dies. NOW I am getting a Error/Diagnostic Code 26 about the TCC being
    stuck. Would this be the cause of the start and then die condition?
    Car shakes when it starts. Maybe the stuck TCC is causing the engine
    to die after a 1-2 second start?

    Is the TCC part of the Valve Body, or am I looking at a new tranny or

    Thx in advance for whatever advice you have to offer !!!!

    TCC stands for Torque Converter Clutch. It gives you a 1 to 1 ratio
    between your engine and your transmission. Either the Torque converter
    will need to be pulled or what ever is engaging it needs to be

    Most of the time when the TCC sticks, it does it when the car goes into lock
    up, and then won't come out, causing a stall situation when you come to a stop
    (kinda like coming to stop with a manual trans and not pushing the clutch in).
    Once the car stalls, it will restart ok and drive normal until it goes into
    lock up again. You can get around that problem by disconnecting the TCC
    connector. But since yours stays stuck from the go, I would say you have some
    internal trans trouble.

    PAUL REPLIES 07/18/04 1005edt: The Haynes manual does not show how to
    pull the TCC. Any clue how to do that? Do I need to pull the
    transmission out ?
