It could be a major problem. Its not a maintenance thing.
Code 741 is for a problem with the torque converter switch or solenoid. The computer "locks up" the torque converter at speeds above 35 or 40 to increase fuel mileage.
The circuit would need to be tested.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Corolla CE P0741 error code.

This fix comes from the service manager of a Toyota dealer, he is a online expert named Toyota Ed.

Toyota is aware of this situation. Production changes have ocurred to correct this condition.

Here is what you do: Take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer. Tell them that you have a P-0741 code, and you want them to apply "Toyota Technical Service bulletin TC008-04" to your vehicle. They will perform several tests, and if you vehicle is lower than 5 years old, and less than 60, 000 miles, they will fix it for free. This TSB is covered by the Powertrain Warranty. Additionally, Thay may replace the ECU with an updated unit, and that particular warranty is in effect for 96 months or 80,000 miles.

This will definatly cure your issue

SOURCE: Washed eng. This morning car was fine now at about

P1361: top dead center sensor circuit. The crank positioning sensor and cam positioning sensor are the two components that you want to look at. One of the two parts are cracked and the water is causing a short. Once it dries out, it should go back to normal but you do need to replace the faulty sensor/s.

The check engine light came on the the code is p0741, I can't seem to find out the problem. Can you help me?

This is a torque converter circuit performance code not a short or open circuit code.Let me explain what the difference is.The computer commands the clutch inside your torque coverter to apply.Then the system will look for an rpm drop within a specific time.If there is no rpm drop or too slow of a drop or not enough drop , then this code will set.I have seen many things cause this and is rarely the solenoid.Wear in the transmission, valve body and or torque converter is most common problem.Non factory tire size is not unusual.If you can be more specific about year make and model i cam probaly point you in the right direction.Thanks please vote.

yes they are all right, i suspect that this vehicle uses encrypted software for the gearbox computer and this is the reason for the different codes ,i never use a code reader as on europeon cars they just show cannot connect to vehicle ,i use a voltmeter and a dwell meter plus a frequency meter and a scope to diagnose problems .So i suspect

P0741....Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off

P0507....Idle Control System RPM Higher Than Expected

that this dealer doesnt have the correct diagnostic software because their code is a generic code as well as the first one ,A GM dealer code would have been P1507 and this code doesnt exist in the GM list of codes ,i think they are both right and need attention but the gearbox code is a fault with the front clutch operating mechanism ,i would advise ripping teh autobox out and fitting a manual gearbox ,lot less hassle
