    Check fluid level? Mounts?
    How do you know your torque converter is bad?
    What is that little piece of rubber?

    I know torque converter is bad by the code. Left it alone because i'm not taking long road trips anymore & the shop said it was some little rubber piece that cost 50 cent. Emission test throughs the code evry year now. Since the torq is in the trans figure i wait till trans gave up. Took care of front mount just this summer. Low oil could be but why only at 5mph? What's that between 1st & 2nd gear shift & not between the other gears?
