Torque Converter Failing...

I guess it is a commonly occurring thing. My dealership's transmission guy determined that the vibration I was feeling looks like my problem too. He says in the last few months he replaced 4 of these suckers under Ford's warranty which applies to my situation too.

Thank you to those of you who warned me regarding the issue.
I was getting dangerously close to the expiration limit of my warranty at 56,600.

Appointment is set for July 2nd

Mine just went in. It takes a little practice and time to recreate the rumble so I’m a little worried the mechanic will blow it off and I’ll be stuck with a $200 bill for the NPF diagnosis. At least I will have a paper trail in case the TC grenades after the warranty expires.

They should be pulling the driveline for my second giubo replacement so if they’re that deep into it they might as well inspect the transmission.
