1996 Ford Explorer Cadillac Converter

I have replaced everything on this truck to include a rebuilt transmission. How can I tell if the cadillac converter is bad. I have replaced all the 02 sensors. The switch for the overdrive is so sensitive it comes on about every month and I just switch it back off.

Code p0741 96 cadillac deville. tcc stuck off been drive in 3rd instead is this safe or sould I fix the torque converter


Your problem is probably the solonoid valve in the transmission valve body area. (The trans pan has to be removed) Replace the valve asm. and while it's apart, do a trans. filter change too.

How to tell if my cadillac converter is bad.


I would take it to get it tested some places will do it free, Schuck's will and some other parts stores, also I would get a diagnostics done on it. Then they will give you the code and the meaning for it.
good luck.
