I have a few questions out of curiosity…
1. The case of the converter is sealed to keep the fluid inside etc. Ok. But is there any possibility the fluid could get degraded and cause the converter to work below the factory parameters?
2. What about the clutching element you’ve presented in the video – could it get worn out and fail?
3. What is the estimated mileage of the torque converter under “normal” driving conditions? I.e. is it possible for the converter to fail after going about 90 thousand miles?
