Some simple and basic torque converter questions-

Some basic torque converter questions-

I understand basically what a torque converter does . But what I do not understand is:

-Why do they wear out? Why?

-When they are repaired, what is replaced or rebuilt?

-How long does one last?

-How do you know you have a bad torque converter?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I have been explaining basic principles of cars to the kids and I realized I didn't have adequate answers to the above.
