Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
The transmission doesn't feel like it's slipping but it is very sluggish on take off or if I start it on an incline. It has been doing this ever since I owned it (4 years now) but I finally want to get it fixed. I ran the diagnostic trouble codes and got : P0740, P0753, 758, 785 and 1860. I saw a post somewhere about the ignition switch could also be a problem. The ignition switch has been replaced twice (neither time but experts). The last replacement works but the key still needs a few twists to remove it. Anyone out there with any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the information on your trouble codes (which explains the problem you're having).
P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction
P0753 Shift Solenoid A Electrical
P0758 Shift Solenoid B Electrical
P0785 Shift/Timing Solenoid Malfunction
P1860 TCC PWM Solenoid circuit electrical
The good news is that it is an electrical problem rather than a mechanical problem. So, you should be able to get the problem taken care of without removing the transmission. The bad news is, you'll probably have to take it to a tranny shop to get the electrical bug worked out (unless you have the knowledge/equipment to test each of the electronic components of the tranny).
Hope this helps and good luck!
