    alright guys i need some help here. about two years ago i replaced my transmission on my 92 honda accord ex automatic. now i believe the torque converter just went out on it. now i have a heavy foot and every now and then i push it 5500 rpm. should the converter have gone out because of my heavy foot or is it just a bad converter. im aasking because ima gonna get h22a full swap with automatic trans and i want to know if because of my heavy foot the trans may go out quickly. thanks

    All parts eventually wear, being mean on the pedal with an automatic will make it wear faster.

    Rules to Performance driving in Automatics:

    -Fresh Tranny fluid every 4000 miles.
    -Magnetic drain plug for Tranny Fluid.
    -Tranny Cooler.
    -Oil Cooler if you live in warm climates or if you're making over 200hp.
    -Use less antifreeze in ratio with water, I will run 30% in the summer with Water Wetter in my manual tranny car, then go back to 50% in the winter.
    -Performance torque converters are available, do a little searching.
    -If tranny has more than 60,000m on it, consider an overhaul and replace all the seals.
