SOURCE: jeep codes location of unit

Got me a complete manual for 199 jeep factory model and found location of each individual unit in question. Manual gives u possible solution to each code and repair and or replace. As a mechanic myself testing, trouble shooting and repair was not that difficult. Shift solenoid was very difficult to get to. Located under the head lamp passenger side.

Your transmission should still work if the solenoid goes bad. It will just shift funny

SOURCE: Trouble code P1740 on 1999 Dodge Ram 2500

I had the same code on my 2001 dodge 2500. The truck wouldn't shift from 3-4. I pulled the trans pan off and replaced a broken spring ($2.00). It is behind a thin plate with 3-4 small torq screws. You don't have to remove the valvebody. Only took me 45 minutes to fix.

I would like to give thanks to Jeff Russel from Teal automotive. He said this is a very common problem. He sells any part for any automatic Transmision and his prices are very affordable.
Here is a link to the website.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Volkswagen 01M torque converter stuck

You have to be very careful with input shaft rings. They like to eat into the pump stater. Also always buy new vb don't buy rebuilt because they only work 2 out of 5 times. I know this for experience

When i put the car in park , it stalls


A common problem on automatic transmission Fiero's is the torque converter solenoid. If it fails the torque converter stays on. This makes it stall at low speeds because basically it's locked into top gear.

P0740 honda odyssey


P0740 Honda - Transmission Lock-Up Control System Fault Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness is open or shorted
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit poor electrical connection

Tech notes
On some Honda vehicles the P0740 code may be set by an overheating torque converter problem which is caused by an insufficient flow to the torque converter release circuit.

P0740 Honda Description
The torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, with the gear in D4, by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the vehicle speed and the Engine Control Module (ECM). Lock-up piston operation will then be controlled. When the torque converter clutch solenoid valve is activated, the torque converter lockup clutch will engage creating a 1 to 1 RPM ratio between the transmission input shaft and the rotational speed of the torque converter.
Lock-up operation, however, is prohibited when A/T fluid temperature is too low.
When the accelerator pedal is depressed (less than 2/8) in lock-up condition, the engine speed should not change abruptly. If there is a big jump in engine speed, there is no lock-up.

Took 2000 Pontiac grand prix to garage and the codes he got were Po 742a, Po446a. the mechanic had said it had something to do with the torque converter....after reading a little bit online I am a little...


If it is a torque converter clutch solenoid (or tcc solenoid). You do NOT need a new transmission or transmission rebuild. You just need to replace the TCC solenoid.

Starts & run when put in gear shuts off, will restart 3.8eng will not move as though the trans is locked


There is a good chance that your torque converter is locked due to a torque converter lock-up solenoid malfunction. (pretty common) The torque converter lock-up solenoid is what locks the torque converter to put the transmission into overdrive. When they malfunction, it will cause the transmission to be stuck in overdrive at all times (this is not supposed to happen until the vehicle speed gets over 45 Mph). You must remove the side cover from your transmission to replace the torque converter lock-up solenoid.
Please also be advised that many of the solenoid malfunctions - especially on older, high mileage vehicles, are caused by dirt and debris in the transmission. This debris is usually caused by wear or breakage of internal parts (like clutches or bearings) in the transmission. I would recommend also pulling the lower pan and filter off to see what kind of debris is in the pan and evaluate whether this may be caused by a more serious problem.

What code po741


P0741 "Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid stuck off"
If the PCM detects high torque converter slip when the TCC is commanded ON, then DTC P0741 sets. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Valve (TCC Sol. Valve) Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). The solenoid controls the hydraulic fluid for TCC apply and release. When the TCC is applied, the engine is coupled directly to the transmission through the TCC. The TCC slip speed should be near 0.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

Torque converter locks up and wont release until it cools off


U may need to replace the torque converter and the torque converter clutch control solenoid inside the transmission it is mounter to the valve body, there is one thing you can try 1st, change the fluid in the transmission and the TCC (Torque Converter Clutch) solenoid, use the new GM spec DEXRON VI transmission fluid, there is a good chance you can fix this by doing these cheaper service and part replacement, if that doesn't work the tranmission must be removed and the torque replaced

1994 mazda cronos 2.00 v6 auto car idles ok drives ok but when i come to a stop it stalls in gear been atuo


This sounds like a problem with the torque converter lockup system. Usually the torque converter lockup solenoid is at fault in your condition. This solenoid usually locks up the torque convertor (which acts like a clutch in an automatic transmission) when you are driving at a certain speed, and unlocks it when you press the brake, and/or come to a stop. When a torque converter stays locked up, and you stop the vehicle, it acts like a vehicle with a manual transmission, if you bring the vehicle to a complete stop without applying the clutch pedal, the brakes stall the engine. Basically, if the torque converter can't unlock, even when you come to a stop, the engine is still locked to the transmission, and even when you apply the brakes, the torque converter doesn't slip and freewheel like it should, but instead stalls the engine.

2001 ESPACE 2.0L AUTO NO REVERSE HELP PLEASE


your trans has lectronic controls to operate the shifting of your trans. If there is a defect, a fault code will be stored in the computer, called a DTC. You need to have someone with a scan tool check for the fault code. It is likely a solenoid that is not working or stuck.

Get the codes first. Autozone can run the test for free on engines, maybe trans codes too. Call your local Autozone or big parts store and ask them.

SECTION 307-01: Automatic Transaxle/Transmission 2001 Escape Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Transaxle Description The CD4E automatic transaxle is a four-speed, front wheel drive automatic transaxle with electronic controls for:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid for shift quality.
  • Shift scheduling.
  • 3-2 shift timing.
  • Coast braking.
  • Torque converter clutch control.
The transaxle features a four element torque converter with a torque clutch and a geartrain that includes:
  • Compound planetary gearset.
  • Chain drive.
  • Planetary gearset final drive.
  • Pinion and side gear differential.
The hydraulic control system of the transaxle has five solenoids that control:
  • Shift feel, through line pressure control.
  • Shift scheduling, through shift valve positioning control.
  • Modulated application of the torque converter clutch.
  • Timing of 3-2 shifts.
  • Engine braking during coast operation.
----------------------------
Solenoid Valve Body Assembly The solenoid valve body assembly contains the transmission fluid temperature sensor (TFT) sensor, as well as five PCM controlled output devices:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid.
  • Shift solenoid A (SSA).
  • Shift solenoid B (SSB).
  • 3-2 timing/coast clutch solenoid (3-2 T/CCS).
  • Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid.
---------------------------------
You may need your PCM, Powertrain Control Module reflashed by a Ford Dealer.
Try disconnecting your battery for 1/2 hour and then reconnect and see what happens. It will run a little rough and shfit hard until it relearns your engine/trans characteristics.
Let us know results of tests and DTC codes if you get them.
