YOU HAVE A TORQUE CONVERTER PROBLEM. TORQUE CONVERTER CONTROL CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION CODES CAN COME FROM ELECTRICLE TO INTERNAL MALFUNCTION. IF YOU START EXPERIENCING A HARD SHIFT OR FREE SPIN TO HARD SHIFT DON'T BE SURPRISED. TRY CHANGING FLUID. THIS MAY HELP. HONDA WOULD HAVE REPLACED TRANS IF UNDER 105 k FOR FREE. IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE TRANS. BUY ONE FROM HONDA, 3 YR WARRANTY AND AS CHEAP AS A REBUILT TRANS. HAVE A QUALIFIED PERSON INSTALL, YOU WILL SAVE ABOUT $500 DOING IT THIS WAY. GOOD LUCK

The problem could be the torque converter itself or the sensor circuit for the clutch.
Best to have a Transmission Expert look at it to see if any further damage has occurred.

Code p0740 is a problem in lock up control solenoid assembly, Check whether scan tool indicates another code. Does the scan tool indicate another code? YES - Perform the Troubleshooting Flowchart for the indicated Code(s). Do not continue with this troubleshooting until the causes of any other DTCs have been corrected. Measure the line pressure. Is the line pressure within the service limit? Repair the hydraulic system as necessary. Replace the Lock-up Control Solenoid Assembly set lock-up control solenoid valve/shift control solenoid valve A assembly and the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A/B assembly. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and reset the PCM memory by removing the BACK UP fuse in the passenger's under-dash fuse/relay box for more than 10 seconds . Using the scan tool, check to be sure that the engine coolant temperature is 176°F (80°C) or above . Drive the vehicle at 55 mph (88 km/h) for more than one minute . Recheck for code P0740. Does the OBD II scan tool indicate code P0740? YES - Remove the torque converter and inspect for a missing torque converter O-ring. If the O-ring is damaged or missing, replace the transmission and torque converter. NO - The system is OK at this time.

IT sounds like your reverse gear is going out, or that you need to have filter replaced my best advise is have your transmission checked out by a transmission shop as soon as possible.
