Hey all,

I have a 2015 Chevy Cruze LTZ that's currently in the shop for a P0703 Torque Converter failure. I've owned the car for not even two years yet and it has less than 10k miles on it. The service tech said this isn't normal, but that the part just simply failed. It first started with a check engine light and my car stalled while switching gears from drive to reverse, etc. I was told the fuel pump (or something of that nature) was replaced and the issue would go away. Well, it didn't, same issue and now the torque converter needs replacing. Has anyone else experienced this sort of issue?

Never heard of a torque converter failure in more than 35 years of driving.

There is a pump behind the torque converter that can fail, as well as the torque converter clutch. As well, I've seen torque converters with heat damage. But again, never a failure.

My 2011 had a transmission pump gasket failure which was fixed like within the first six months of my ownership and was a known issue from the factory. Dealer found it leaking on one of my oil change visits. I didn't even notice it was leaking but that was before we had the engine cover hack and that was where the fluid was resting.

Never heard of an all out torque converter failure on gen1 and even the early versions.

This no dipstick crap has to stop. There is no reason why we can't have a transmission dip stick. How the **** are we suppose to check the level after transmission work so we know the transmission is filled correctly.

Dealers offer 12 month warranty on work but they could do work and not fill the transmission correctly and it could burn up after 12 months.

Total BS there is no dipstick. I will never buy a car with no dipstick again.
Manufacturers need to be sent a message. Scared to get any transmission fluid changed because you have to jump through hoops to check it and go through all kinds of BS.

Checking on a warmed up engine with a dip stick is a no brainer.
