hey man, I might be way off base, but when i pulled the auto trans off of my motor from the parts car the torque converter fell off the flywheel, have no idea but maybe that is what happened.

Oh and if you happen to need an auto tranny for an m20 pm i got one for sale

good luck man, hopefully its something simple

the converter is screwed to the flywheel with 3 bolts
it shouldent come off that easy

can you send me a pic. off your tranny and second is ther a electric conector direct on the transmission ??

do you have the linkage hooked up correctly? maybe it came loose?
