do i have a torque converter?
I was asking my brother yesterday about this and he wasn't too sure, so i'm running it by you all. I hope there hasn't been a post about this already, I did a search and found nothing.
I've got the '01 motorsports edition with the sport-tronic (or whatever the correct term is) shifter in it. When I'm in 4th gear and head up a hill it almost sounds like my car shifts down. As if there was a low and high speed for each gear. My brother said that dodge, sometime in the late 90's came out with a torque converter for truks that worked similar to the way this sounds. When it (what ever IT is) kicks in my rpm's will jump from say 2k to 3.2k or so, then i down shift into 3rd and it jumps up to 4k or 4.5k.
can anyone please splain to me what this is?
