    Hope I don't sound stupid and or asking a dumb question but I have a 94 GT automatic and I'm positive the torque converter is bad it has the shuddering and low on power. My question is would it affect the transmission wanting to move forward in neutral and drive? I'm thinking no and clutches or something are seized up but wondering lol thanks in advance!

    If its trying to pull forward in neutral, then I would say a forward clutch pack is dragging/seized. Whats the fluid smell like? Is it burnt?

    And hows the fluid level? If you have the shudder you should at least do a fluid change as that helps.

    His transmission is toast. I helped him troubleshoot it about a year ago. The car tries to move forward when in neutral and reverse. The fluid from the pan was burnt and had chunks on clutch and seal material in it.
