Enduro Gearbox Centre stocks fully reconditioned Mercedes-Benz torque converters at a fraction of the price for a new one.

Torque converters are key to automatic transmission vehicles and are very special engine components. Mercedes-Benz torque converters, like all torque converters, are made up of five parts.

The stator or middleman serves as the conduit that reverses transmission fluid and returns it to a turbine impeller.

The impeller pump receives the transmission fluid. The impellers are spun by the engine’s crankshaft and the faster it spins, the more force it provides, causing the fluid to flow faster and harder.

The turbine’s spline attaches to the transmission input shaft. This then connects to the internal parts of the transmission to shift gears and push power to the wheels.

Mercedes-Benz torque converters also use a friction clutch to lock up the converter at higher speeds. This ensures better fuel efficiency and less slip.

Transmission fluid is an important part of Mercedes-Benz torque converters. It ensures smooth coupling and starts and without stalling the engine when the car is stopped in gear.

There are a few ways in which Mercedes-Benz torque converters can malfunction. High levels of slippage cause overheating. This in turn damages the elastomer seals contain the transmission fluid within the converter. When the fluid starts leaking out, Mercedes-Benz torque converters will stop functioning altogether.

Mercedes-Benz torque converters are seldom thought about by drivers, despite it being the driving force of an automatic transmission. Mercedes-Benz torque converters also play a big part in fuel efficiency.

Transmission Control Modules

Most modern Mercedes-Benz transmissions are electronically controlled and reliant on computers. The transmission control module is the brain of your automatic transmission as it gathers data from input sensors, as well as various other control modules within your vehicle, which in turn command solenoids to control the hydraulic pressure, in order to accomplish optimum shift quality, transmission performance and fuel economy.

When dealing with transmission shifting problems, it is always advisable to start with diagnostics, in order to determine whether the issue is mechanical or electronic, in order to correctly address your transmission problem.

Signs of a Failing Transmission Control Module

Although Mercedes-Benz components are built to the highest quality, heat fluctuation, voltage overload/underload, water, vibrations and thermal stress can cause your Transmission Control Module to fail.

The most common symptom that you are experiencing Transmission Control Module failure is ‘LIMP MODE’. This is a safety feature specifically designed to detect improper signals that are not within the computer’s programmed specifications, and will disable the transmission’s ability to shift gears and cause it to default to a single usable gear to protect further damage to your transmission.

Some other common signs of a faulty Transmission Control Module include:

  • No upshift or downshift
  • Harsh reverse and drive engagement
  • No kick down
  • Stuck in neutral/park
  • Loss of power while driving
  • Warning lights on dashboard

Transmission Control Module Repairs

Due to the complexity of electronically controlled automatic transmissions, it will take a fair amount of expertise to diagnose the problem, using specialized diagnostic equipment that can read transmission codes.

These codes indicate whether the transmission malfunction has been caused by a mechanical or electronic failure. Invariably if the code displays an electronic failure the problem could lie with faulty electronics such as speed sensors, solenoids and selector sensors or with the internal circuitry of the transmission control module itself.

We are fully equipped and have the expertise to deal with all types of Transmission Control Module repairs and stock a wide variety of reconditioned units ready to be fitted!

All our units carry a one year, unlimited mileage warranty!
