SOURCE: Hi,I have a code p0740 on my 2004 dodg neon I

Hi, the likely problem is that your torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid has failed and will no longer engage the clutch. However, it may be worth a try to have your transmission fluid flushed and the filter replaced, if you haven't done that recently. There is some small chance that will fix the problem. The TCC is a device in the transmission that locks the engine to the transmission once you reach highway speeds of at least 25 mph or higher. The purpose of the clutch is to conserve fuel and reduce heat in the torque converter. The car will run fine without the TCC, but will get slightly less highway mileage. There is no harm or safety concern with driving the car as it stands now. However, if you intend to keep this car and drive a lot of highways miles, it may be worth the expense to have it repaired. (you could check your mileage to see how it's doing without the clutch) The repair should be done by a transmission expert, as there are several possible reasons it has failed--I'm only guessing it's the solenoid but would HAVE to troubleshoot to be sure. The repair can be done by any reputable transmission shop--it does not have to be done at the dealer. That said, I do recommend you shop around a bit if you want to have the car repaired, as there is considerable variation in the approach to this repair. It is possible to replace the solenoid without removing the transmission, but some shops may claim you need a complete rebuild. Make sure to tell them your trouble code--that was very helpful to me. If you decide not to repair the transmission, I recommend you disconnect the TCC solenoid so that it doesn't try to engage. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa

I have been getting the code p0740 it says something about the torque converter clutch circuit. it doesn't seem to be going into over drive. dose anyone have any suggestions I can try.

On some cars, there is a TCC solenoid in the transmission which can be replaced by removing the bottom pan. In some cars this solenoid can't be accessed without major disassembly.

Code p0740 on 1997 dodge r

tranny fail
there are 100s of pages in the FSm book covering this.
are you asking for guesses or tests. or what/?
fsm shows
A/T Torque Converter Clutch - No RPM Drop At Lockup is this what you want?
or why?
or tests?
if no other codes using a REAL scan tool that dont miss factory codes. then its TCC failure to lock.
so what do the shops do?
easy we check the signal to the TCC connector as it enters
the trans, then force lockup and see if it goes to 12v.
if not its a body wiring side issue
yes, then a tranny inside issue.
1 check and bam.
how to do all that takes planning, if no factory tool to do the commands.
we use test wires run to cab and drive , and a cheap $10 vol meter
test lights dont work, because 6v glows and that dont work.
only volts count. (and never lies)

I am getting P0700 and P740 what do they mean? P0740 states that TCC Circuit Malfunctioning, what does that mean? I took my car to a repair shop and was told that it would cost me $1400 to fix it. I would...

P0700 is an information code from the transmission controller to the engine controller(computer) it says "hey I'm having trouble making the trans do what I want it to!" P0740 is a trans code saying that the TorqueConvertorControl system isn't working. Could be the solenoid pack, valve body or the torque converter itself. I would recommend to leave this for a pro! $1400 is a fair price.

Getting error code P0 740. what does this mean?

In the '96 Factory Service Manual, it says code P0740 is "Torq Conv Clu, No RPM Drop At Lockup" (Relationship between engine speed and vehicle speed indicates no torque converter clutch engagement).

When I lived in a cold climate (MT) had a JGC,V8, with a trailer towing option that didn't shift correctly in cold temps. The problem was corrected with a TSB that bypassed the tranny cooler @ cold temps.

I've seen several cold weather TSBs having to do with Dodge transmissions at the following:

Hope helped.

Rough idle and misfire on ram truck

Change cam sensor & erase codes.( disconnect battery for a minute or so after.) 340 & 1391 refer to cam sensor problem, and all other 300 codes are cylinder misfires that should disappear when cam sensor fixed.

the dealer needs to find out the codes and from the codes they should know what the problem is, and then should manage to sort the problems from there,
