E.C.C.D........(Edge converter clutch disc)

I've got a good mind to weld a handle to this F**kin thing and donate it to the local Curling club

Trouble started last Monday....dtc p0740 (torque converter clutch circuit error)

....thought it was a bad solenoid, So I swapped the TRS from my old transmission.....put in new filters and fluid............nope.....that's not it......

Between the time I realized the converter wasn't locking up and getting my truck into my garage, the trans temp light came on....

Now I've got a big mess to clean.....

This won't keep us from going to the Niagara Falls GTG......Unfortunately, I already sold off my APS converter ...

I'll have to clean up the ol' stocker and put it in after I disassemble and clean the trans...ughhh

Even though Edge has accepted ownership of the faulty converters from all the others that have gone out, are they assisting with the trans cleanup charges that go along with their converter explosion?

Yes they admitted to the problem, but they also said it was fixed... this makes me a bit sick. I feel terrible Steve cause I said the Edge converter issue was solved.

If I have another dud in my truck I am going to lose my mind

Holy sh*t. I'm kinda glad that Jerry never brought in an Edge 3000 for my truck. Looks like I'll be looking elsewhere in the near future.

yeah.......I'll be looking elsewhere too!!

I ordered this edge converter on March 29 this year...just looked at the email receipt. I've got roughly 2800 miles on it....didn't even get a chance to give it full 10 psi...let alone 14

I wonder if this converter is the reason why the trans downshifted to 2nd prime in the middle of 3rd gear in a WOT run

I just hope that when I pull the trans apart today there's no other damage. It shifted fine into all the gears, and I had no other codes, so I'll keep my fingers crossed

It's not your fault Darrick! I was skeptical about this converter since Jerry's first failure....then the next one, and the next.....When I heard the issues were resolved, I thought maybe they were onto something........So I ordered it.....
then yours failed!!

....and now mine....

I'll be cutting up the edge t-shirt I got with the converter, and use it as an oil rag

Sorry to see that Steve. If you seen the transmission temp light come on, that type of temp is no good for the clutches. When you switched out the solenoid pack, how did you fluid look then?

steve, darrick

just wondering about this.. In your professional opinions, do you two think that edge converters in general have a design flaw for out application, or just when being pushed 100+ more horsepower (F/I, N/O, Etc) at them than a stock setup could?
