I'm not entirely sure if it is or not. I have no frame of reference to use as a good guide. The power delivery often feels uneven, which could be the TC slipping I guess. I don't get any TCU faults, except for an occasional gear selector implausible or something like that.i mentioned this before and maybe you've already crossed this bridge, but is your torque converter locking up like it should?
Yup, I dealt with that, all the way out in the outer banks... My TCM was internally shorted, but water intrusion is also a common issue.pay me some shipping and i'll send you a TCU
you know there are some grounds and factory splices to look at, right?
any moisture under the carpets?
TCU and loom are on the passenger side.
down the outside of the footwell and the unit is under the seat. you should investigate!
it's been a while since i've been behind the wheel of a B5, but the the RPMs shouldn't flair...if you know what i mean. should respond like a MT most of the time except under light loads. i seem to remember "mozambiquer" dealing with this and a solution.
just MT swap the thing already!
In the harness just before the TCM (i don't remember if it's before the box or inside the box) there is a ground wire splice that some cars had problems with. There's maybe 4 wires that come together, they're brown, if I recall. You'll unwrap that and solder them and then tape them back up.I pulled the passenger carpet today and found some moisture down there, but zero evidence of moisture entering the TCU case. Where are the grounds I should be checking located?
