Torque converter 4R100

What are the chances of swapping a bad torque converter in a 4R100 and it lasting until I get the new transmission? Couple months at least? Maybe.. l.o.l

I, for one, can't understand what it is you're asking...

What's a "bad converter"? The one in there now or you are asking if you should Put another "bad" converter in? Where's the donor, bad, converter coming from? How bad is it? Could it have disintegrating clutch material in it that would get into your transmission and make it much worse?

The whole thing doesn't make any sense the way you have asked the question

Lol I meant swapping out a bag torque converter since that's all the problem. If I put in a new torque converter will it temporarily fix my tranny problem until I can get another or do you think the damage may be done and it's not worth my time?

OK , I see...

Your converter went bad, this often leads to contaminating the trans with the lock-up clutch materials inside. All that trash raises hell with the small passages and valving but not so much with the next converter I'd think (a good flush and the replacement converter should come clean).

So, yea, I guess you could try another one for now and see how you make out (do a filter change maybe....) Try a good "used" one maybe?
