Torque Converter stall speed for a 94 4.0 L Ranger
I have a 1994 Ford Ranger 4.0 L 4X4 with the A4LD automatic transmission. I recently have a full tranny rebuild done at a local shop, and ever since I've had some strange symptoms.
When I go to accelerate, I need to bring the rpm up to 2700+ just to keep up with normal traffic. If I floor the gas I can still make the tires squeak, but the acceleration seems quite a bit weaker than what I remember before I had the rebuild done.
I performed a stall speed test by holding down the brake and stepping on the gas, and the rpm ran up to 3100. Is that in the normal range for the stock torque converter? I've found a ton of different numbers online for stall speed ranging from 1800 up to 3200, and I'm not sure which is correct.
The other symptom I have is a shudder around 1800 rpm in first gear, basically as I am getting going off of a light.
Any advice or ideas would be much appreciated!
