The Engine May Stall After Extended Freeway Driving on Chevrolet Corsica

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. Our technicians tell us when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.

Took it to Merlin's in Kalamazoo, MI, and at over 600 bucks later, it's stll not fixed. They had no clue. After an hour of internet searching and reading, I know know the TCC is the problem. I'm pretty distressed about this, since I'm on a fixed income and have been broke for 2 months while Merlin's "fixed" this and that. Now I KNOW what the problem is. Now to wait another month until I have the money to take it in (somewhere else!)to get it fixed.
other than that, it's a wonderful little car.
