John Lombardo of IPT Performance Transmissions gives an explanation of Torque Converter Operation John Lombardo said that the torque converter is one of the least understood components in an automatic transmission equipped vehicle and he should know because he is the owner of IPT Performance Transmissions a US company that specialized in torque transmission for automobile. John Lombardo has been in the automotive transmission repair and high performance engineering for more than 20 years. John explains that there are no direct link between the crankshaft and the transmission input shaft. It means that the first function of the converter is to connect the crankshaft and the input shaft so the engine can move the vehicle; this is accomplished through the utilization of a fluidic coupling effect.The torque converter also replaces the clutch that is required in a manual transmission; this is how an automatic transmission vehicle can come to a stop while still being in gear without stalling the engine. The torque converter also acts as a torque multiplier, or an extra gear ratio, to help the car get moving from a standstill position.
