Nope I tried.

The guy who sold it was helpful i guess but hes just a normal guy who trades cars in spare time, not a dealer or car company.

After I drove it and signed the receipt saying I accept the car and have test driven it hes within his rights to not take it back and he didn't.

Sucks to be me but theres not much else I could do.

Torque converter would make sense I guess regarding the RPM's, the car was cold when it was doing it this morning so ill see if it still does it while hot.

The transmission I got it replaced with was used with 80k miles but it was all I could afford. Ideally I'll get it reconditioned and the torque converter replaced but it's going to be a while before I have significant spare cash for that.

I kept the old box too to play around with / investigate in my spare time.

I was thinking the issue with my old box going could have just been the torque converter but labor to replace was more than the box itself so it wasn't worth trying out a replacement converter as if it didn't work I'd have to remove / replace again.
