Hey lisa this is going to sound really bad but i assure u it works sometimes,, if not you will need to replace the torque convertor.

the tc is sealed so you cant get to the inner parts without cutting it open, and then you need an air tight seem to keep it from leaking.. Suggestion.. remove it and bang it a few times with a really big hammer. Not hard enough to bend or damage it but enough to loosen the bonded pieces..

if that don't work you will need to replace it.

ps yeah i know its not orthodox but it works.

1998 jeep grand cherokee 4x4. have the p0740 code. have to start from neutral, then shifts faily well. May start fluttering and making noise, have to put back to N, then to D and once again will shift. ...


P0740 JEEP - Torque Converter Clutch Circuit
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Transmission shift shock
- Vehicle may not shift into the highest gear

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted

When is the code detected?
Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) unlocked for 10 sec., ECM commands converter lock-up and did not record engine speed drop.

P0740 JEEP 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.

Engine died when comming 2 a fast stop


its a ford, sorry i had to say it im a chevy guy, it could be that you were faster than the computer and your brakes locked up or slowed it down faster than the torque converter could unlock itself, rare thing to happen, happens more offten to two footed drivers, the converter is designed to unlock as soon as you let off the gas, two footed drivers tent to keep a feet on the gas a little when the brake. iff it persist it could be a torque converter issue

How much should it cost to replace the torque converter on a 2005 mdx?


I had mine replaced at the dealer for $2100.00. It was covered under the extended warranty. Ours was replaced because the torque converter wasn't unlocking when the RPMs were low. So we had pinging of the engine. It was cured with the torque converter. Ours is a 2005 and it was last summer it was done.

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.
