Service engine light is on the p0741 code poped up on 2002 grand prix se

Hi there:DTC P0741 - Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Excessive Slip, Transaxle Chuggle, Slip/Surge (Inspect and/or Replace Various Internal Transaxle Components

There is some service info, that may very well be your problem. here is the info...

Subject: Incorrect Transmission Shifts, Poor Engine Performance, Harsh 1-2 Upshifts, Slips 1ST and Reverse, Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Stuck Off/On, DTCs P0730, P0756, P0757, P0741, P0742 (Clean Transaxle Valve Body and Case Oil Passages of Debris)

Models: 2001-2005 GM Passenger Cars with 4T65-E Automatic Transmission
2001-2005 Buick Rendezvous
2005 Buick Terraza
2001-2004 Chevrolet Venture
2005 Chevrolet Uplander
2001-2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette
2001-2005 Pontiac Aztek, Montana
2005 Saturn Relay
with 4T65-E Transmission (RPOs M15, MN3, MN7, M76)

Some owners may comment on any one or more of the following conditions:

* The SES lamp is illuminated.
* The transmission slips.
* The transmission does not shift correctly, is very difficult to get the vehicle to start moving or the engine lacks the power to move the vehicle.
* Poor engine performance.

The most likely cause of the various conditions may be chips or debris:
* All years--Pressure Reg. Valve (Bore 1) or Torque Signal Valve (Bore 4) stuck.
* On 2001-2002 vehicles, a plugged orifice on the case side of the spacer plate.
* On 2003-2005 vehicles, restricted movement of the 2-3 shift valves in the valve body.
* On 2003-2005 vehicles, restricted movement of the 3-4 shift valves in the valve body.

Technician Diagnosis and Correction
* The technician's road test reveals the vehicle launches in third or fourth gear (high RPM with slow vehicle acceleration).

* On 2001-2002 vehicles, a DTC P0756 or P0757 may be stored.
* On 2003-2005 vehicles, a DTC P0730, P0741, P0748 or P0757 may be stored.
* Refer to the appropriate Service Information (SI) for additional Diagnostic Assistance.
* With a Tech 2 connected to the vehicle, road test the vehicle and perform the following steps:
If the above symptoms are present proceed with the following steps.
With the valve body removed and on a workbench, carefully push the valve against spring pressure to check if the valve will snap back to the original position. Or for the valves seated in home position, use a small flat-bladed screwdriver and carefully pry the valve off its seat, quickly remove the screwdriver allowing the valve to return to its seat. If the valve does not snap back unencumbered, then the valve will need to be removed from the valve body.
Once the valve is removed, inspect for any scratching or scoring.
If any scratching or scoring is found, then the fingernail test will need to be performed.

Important: It has been found that in most cases that the scratches are not severe enough to catch your fingernail.
Using your fingernail, move over any scratches to see if your nail will catch on the scratch or score.
* If your nail catches in the scratches, the valve will need to be replaced.
* If your nail does not catch in the scratches, continue with the next step.

Important: Clean the valve body with the machined side down so debris may escape.
Clean the valve and bore using brake cleaner.
Blow off with shop air.
To verify free movement of the valve, dip the valve into clean ATF and install the valve back into the appropriate bore. The valve should move freely. If the valve moves freely, in most cases the valve body will function properly when reinstalled.
Reassemble and retest .


(1)Bore 1, Pressure Regulator (Reverse Boost Valve inside bushing)(2)Bore 2, 1-2 Shift Valve, Solenoid "A"(4)Bore 4, Torque Signal Valve, Pressure Control Solenoid(5)Bore 5, Pressure Relief Valve(6)Bore 6, PWM and TCC Control Valve(7)Bore 7, TCC Regulator Apply Valve(11) Bore 11, 3-4 Shift Valve, 4-3 Manual Down Shift Valve(12) Bore 12, 2-3 Shift Valve, 3-2 Manual Down Shift Valve(14) Bore 14, Secondary 1-2 Accumulator Valve(15) Bore 15, 2-3 Accumulator Valve, 3-4 Accumulator Valve(16) Bore 16, Solenoid "B"

Want to fit fanbelt jeep 3.1 turbo diesel 2000 model

Done one not so long agao and if i remember rightly the tensioner was above the crankshaft to the right but it may have been a newer model than this ,have a haynes manual for this year but it doesnt cover diesels -typical haynes - - useless ,problem is i cannot think if this has the italian engine or the isusu if its a europeon sold vehicle which i think it is as i cannot anticipate any self respecting american petrol head buying this as a diesel version ,because unless its monster CO2 producer they consider a diesel as something only us europeon types will use.But the days of cheap petrol are coming to a end

I need to change the alternator on a 2001 ford focus and need to know what size wrench is needed to loosen the timing belt tensioner enough to remove the timing belt. Please help

I don`t know the size,but it will be metric.If you have a standard,american set of wrenches,get the one that is closest to fitting the bolt head.Here is something to help you decide what the actual metric size wrench to use.8mm is 5/16,,,10 mm is smaller than 3/8.11mm is a 7/16.12mm is larger than 7/16 but smaller than 1/2.13mm is 1/2,14mm is 9/16,15 is bigger than 9/16,but smaller than 5/8.,,5/8 is 16mm.17mm is 11/16,18mm is bigger than11/16,but smaller than3/4,19mm is 3/4.I hope this helps.

Fan belt pully on camshaft has worked loose

You need to consult a manual because if cam pulley came loose this will cause problem with timing and if you have what is refered to an interfearence motor you will bend your valves if you havent already done so...If pulley did not come all the way loose due to timing cover not permitting this is a great sign...The camshaft pulley is attatched by a bolt i believe it is a 14mm make sure the reference marks for timing belt install all match...when putting bolt on cam pulley use locktite so this does not happen again, I hope this helps and you dont have bent valves already....Good Luck
