1. torque converter will engage in gears 2-5
2. torque converter is pulse width modulated for apply
3. It will not apply under WOT

in my case I find the 3.6L to be very docile at low speeds lumbering through the gears with ease at low to mid acceleration. Yes it is eager to get into top gear as fast as possible for fuel economy reasons


as for changing the fluid, it is not really a filter up there more like a strainer type of deal. to replace it pan has to come off and you will have to break the RTV bond.

new fluid makes the e5at shift smoother and will help alleviate jerks on downshifts as you are coming to a stop.... I have 165k on mine, still runs great.
