hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

Need to remove the valve body from the transaxle. The solenoid is mounted to the valve body. Follow the 2 wire connector that sticks up vertically out of the top of the trans - it is a round connector.

The torque converter is a key functional part of the automatic transmission. The car computer detected a malfunction and set the P0704 code. Most likely you have over 100k miles already so it could be problems with the transmission. Most mechanics will reset the light and code if you are not having any transmission problems. It the problem comes back you will need to service or replace the transmission. Best thing to do is to take the car to a mechanic you trust and find the best and cheapest way to address the malfunction.

SOURCE: P0740 T Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction

The transmission fluid could be in need of a change, certain parts in the transmission depend upon clean fluid to move properly, this could cause the pressure sensor to fail and engage the torque converter to lock up at the right time. Timing is counted with the computer and it will flash lights when there is a problem.

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.

Loss of power, transmission issues


code p0700 refers to transmission control system/MIL --malfunction===causes --wiring ---TCM (1)
code po740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid--circuit malfunction===causes--wiring--TCC solenoid--ECM/TCM (transmission control module) (again)
code p0871 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor C -range/ performance problem==causes---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM /TCM (yet again)
code p0734 refers to gear 3 ratio (po374 is gear ratio 4) incorrect ratio===causes --wiring--TR sensor/switch--shift solenoids--transmission mechanical fault (causes are the same for po733&734)
code po846 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor B-range/ performance problem===causes ---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM/TCM (again). Give the clutch a miss as you still have 1st gear and if the clutch is not working you will not be going any where. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal mechanical failures (pump ). The rest are sensors are wiring connections , sensor and TCM. My bet is the TCM unit. Have it checked out. What ever you do treat any suggestion of a new transmission with a grain of salt until you are shown proof positive that you need one.

0740 and 0700 diagnostic codes


Sorry about the spammer. The codes are for that:
P0700 = general transmission control system malfunction
P0740 = Torque Converter Clutch Circuit/Open
Both signal a fault in the internal electrical wiring harness of the transmission. It will have to be taken off and dismantled to access the harness for diagnostic and repair. Big job, it will be costly.

2002 DODGE NEON 2.0 ENG. A/T WHERE IS THE TCC SOLENOID LOCATED ? PO740 CODE, I ALREADY FLUSH TRANSMISSION THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.


the tcc solenoids are in the transmission,but the computer sees that the torque converter didn't lock up,so it blames the solenoid in charge of doing that,
but you will probably find the converter is going bad,a tranny shop will be able to verify which is not working.

Transmission light cod P0740


PO740 is a TCC/lockup code.TCC stands for Torque Convertor Clutch.In between the engine and transmission is a torque convertor.Inside the torque convertor is a clutch.This clutch engages to eliminate slippage inside the torque convertor.When a malfunction occurs in the system,which is activated by solenoids,and a computer,a TCC code will set.There is a diagnostic route specifically for that code,to determine if the malfunction is electrical,mechanical,or hydraulic.
