The link in Chevy SS doesn't work. Any other source? 96 Wagon. I am looking also to see when it shifts. I see the tach display in the A/C panel and it looks like it goes into 4th around 54mph and the torque converter locks up depending on throttle. But I spend 90% of my time around 35-50 in town and would like the torque converter to lock at low throttle in 3rd. Possible? I wouldn't mind using a switch.

The trans is designed to only lock the TC in fourth gear. The computer parameters are fourth gear, 45MPH, and less than 10% throttle. The trans has an internal switch that only closes in fourth gear to allow the TC to lock.

I was afraid that might be the case. I had a 96 Olds LSS and it would lock in 3rd. But different car, FWD, V-6 etc.
