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.

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I went into a store and it was running fine when I parked it. I went to start it again and it acted like it didn't want to upshift into 2nd gear. Then it...


Check you transmission fluid. It sounds like a Torque Converter Lockup Solenoid problem though.

Also there was a Tech Support Bulletin related to the Torque Converter listed. Make sure you have taken your vehicle in to get it taken care of.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION NOTIFICATION NO. C01 3/8" TORQUE CONVERTER DRAIN BACK VALVE
Issue Date: 01/2003

NHTSA Campaign ID number:
Potential number of units affected: 30,000
Model year(s): 2003
Manufactured: 10/15/2002 - 11/18/2002
Owner notification start date: January, 2003 Defect: 2003 models equipped with a 4.0L engine only.
Consequence: The torque converter drain back valve on affected vehicles may contain a check ball that swells. A swollen check ball will restrict fluid flow to the cooler and cause the transmission to overheat. This could cause transmission damage.
Solution: The torque converter drain back valve assembly must be replaced.

Hi Craig,
I'd suggest that the oil seal which seals between the torque converter neck and the gear box casing is damaged and will need replacing. The job seems simple but in fact can result in breaking the gearbox oil pump, when the torque converter is refitted to the gear box. the neck has to align with the gears inside the gear box and the oil pump, if the torque converter is not fitted correctly the damage I've mentioned will take place when refitting box.
If you would like to proceed let me know.

Transmission not pulling very well, fluid ok was


Honda Civic 01 has a defetive torque converter that prematurely fails. Same issue with the Odyssey 03 to 05. (The difference is Odyssey got a recall whereas the Civic did not). When it does, debris gets into the transmisson thereby clogging the filter and sometimes ruins the gears. There is no drop pans for this type of transmission and the filter is located inside the transmission housing itself which renders it to be serviceable by transmission shops ONLY. Most often, when the torque converter fails, the entire transmission will need to be overhauled or replaced. A cost that could run from $850 for a rebuilt to $2000 for an OEM. The best cost effective way to remedy this siuation is to replace the torque converter before the mileage reaches to 100K. A rebuilt one only cost $120 or $700 for an OEM with labor ranging around $350. Far cheaper than a transmission replacement. If your Civic 01 is still running and it is beyond 100K, run fast to a transmission shop and replace the torque converter immediately. If the transmission is already starting to slip, replace the torque conventer and flush the transmission and pray that the tranny was not significantly damaged by the debri. Remember, the recommended trans fluid change for Civic is 120K / 6 yrs or 30K / 6 months if driving in severe conditions.

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and


Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

Honda torque converter clutch solenoid circuit


P0740 is a Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction, you will need to have just this circuit tested, it is mostly just a defective Torque converter clutch solenoid in the trans or a defective connection to the trans, u do not need another overhaul.
