hello, new to this forum but not new to forums, i have a 2003 explorer limited 4.6L, the truck was making a weird whining sound when ever i would touch the gas pedal and it would get worse going up oir down hills. we took it to a local shop and they said it was somthing in the transmission, today they took the trans out and told me that there was unusual ware in the torque converter but they would have to call a trans specialist to comfirm what the problem was. the truck also has had problems in the past with reving stalling at red lights. question's are, could this be the tourque converter causing this problem? and if so how much is a new torque converter ? anyone else have this problem with there explorer?
