So, I'm putting a newly used tranny (automatic) in this 96 Leacy GT I picked up, and in the process managed to damage the oil pump in the transmission. Now it also appears that I've damaged the the torque convertor where it mates to the oil pump drive shaft. The original trans has 180k on it, and the C duty solinoid was bad and it had a major leaking issue. The replacement trans had 65k on it. Should I be worried about problems with using the torque convertor that has 180k on it?

Thanks,
Keith

Didn't have the pump shaft lined up when you bolted it in?? The torque converter has a clutch built into it. It can wear, so I would be concerned about the high mile converter.

Do they have a lock-up clutch or are you talking about the stator clutch? (I've been doing lots of research) It seems like the stator clutch isn't really a clutch as it is a "one way" clutching mechanism. As for a lock up clutch the worse thing there is a slight drop in gas mileage, but the car would still drive.
