Torque Converter Lockup

I have a 92 cherokee with 217.000 miles and have run into some problems with the Torque Converter Lockup. When I drive on the Highway for a long distance (150+ miles) and come to a stop the Engine likes to stall. My mechanic said it was the Torque Converter. Anyone else had any problems with this or advice

Try to pull code on it by doing the key on-off trick. The Haynes manual covers this and has a table to decifer the codes.

See what it says.

thats your torque converter lockup solenoid freezing....its the same as completely stopping a manual car in gear with the clutch still engaged...

get the jeep scanned by someone with an OBD1 program or should find the DTC for the TCC solenoid.
