I have a 1995 PSD with the e4od. It has 160,000 and the tourqe converter is shaking like hell when it locks out. I had a full tranny flush and there were brass shavings but no steel. It doesn't slip or miss shift, and I don't tow often or heavy. I will probably sell it in the spring. If I replace just the torque converter will that just make me aware of other problems in my tranny or could I get away with it for awhile.

Hmm.. to be honest I have no real expierence with this, but why put a new torque converter in a 160k mile trans? I'd just replace the whole 9 yards or trade it on a new truck.

Heat has most likely warped the TC cover and lockup friction surface causing the shudder or the cover has balloned. If it works fine otherwise: Replace it with a single disc TC with billet back due to the 160K miles. That would be best for your use if you end up keeping it. Adding a triple disc TC can cause problems in a stock build thats new or with mileage. Best to have a better than stock build for a triple TC.
