Car has torque converter solenoid code. Replaced solenoid and code remains. Car also has a growling sound when putting in gear and rpms drop, it jumps slightly until it starts moving. At speed it drives fine shifts fine. 26mpg and perfect car. Only when stopped growling returns and rpms drop again.

Dropped transmission and removed torque converter. Was going to reuse tranny with new converter. Old converter has scoring on outside of shaft and scratches on housing I haven't seen before. No metal in converter. Fluid was changed at intervals so no burning of fluid. Any thoughts on this scoring or scratches? Something else going on with tranny where converter sits in that I can't see?
