SOURCE: p0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Preformance or Stuck Off

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.

Your car uses a clutch in the transmission that locks the engine to the transmission at highway speeds (40 mph or higher). This saves on gas mileage, as the transmission is a bit more efficient when it's locked. Your solenoid that locks it has failed. It may be expansive to have it fixed. If you don't fix it, it will do not harm, but your mileage will be a bit lower. Check your mileage to see if it's wother fixing the transmission. Any more questions, please reply.

I get a code P0741 for 05 Odyssey EXL (96k miles). Is it safe to drive with this code? Doesn't seem like it's driving any different. Thought was the gas cap when C.E.L came on, but had run on...


The error is means there is an issue with the torque converter on the transmission. It may be stuck. It is safe to drive it but there may be issues with the milage.

Driving along and it just does a little shimmy noise, like you drove over a rumble strip on side of the highway.


Most likely a torque converter clutch shudder.Feels like a wash board between 35 and 45 mph.There are two causes#1 fluid in the transmission degrades over time ( even if it is not discolered.#2 wear in the valve body and pump of the transmission causes a low pressure condition that glazes the linning of the torque converter clutch.Usually both of these are at some level of fault.Changing the fluid and filter is a good place to start, this will fix the problem about 75% of the time.If this does not fix the problem you will need some level of transmission repair and not just another torque converter.Remember the torque converter was damaged due to wear in the transmission and for the fix to be long term you will need to fix the trans.Good Luck.I am guessing this is a crown vic or grand marquis.

Engine starts but then when i go to stop the car shakes and dies. could i took it to the shop and they said they fixed it but never did.


Could be the torque converter in the transmission is locked. If it is, then it would be like stopping with a manual transmission and not pushing in the clutch. You can disconnect the wire harness that plugs into the transmission, this will put shifting into a manual mode. Take it for a test drive, shifting the transmission manually. If your problem has gone away, then the lockup torque converter solenoid is bad. If the problem is still there, then the torque converter will need to be replaced. What did the shop do to the transmission when they supposedly fixed it?

Can you slide the transmissin away and replace seal


It would be nice to know what year & model.
But still not likely.
To replace the front seal If it is an AUTOMATIC, you must remove a lot of parts.
For front wheel drive the first thing are the wheels. Then drop the lower ball joints,break loose the struts from the tie-rods. In some cases lower control arms, sway bars, stabilizers,exhaust systems
The drive shaft(rear wheel drive) or drive-axles (front wheel drive),
transmission mount
cross-member (rear wheel)
shift rods or cable
hydraulic lines (if automatic)
inspection/access cover at bottom-rear of engine,electrical sensors(if applicable). Then the Bell housing bolts as well as torque converter bolts.
And THEN, because the torque converter holds the majority of your transmission fluid the transmission must be removed with the torque converter attached.Moved far enough away that the converter can be removed safely without spilling the fluid everywhere and where the removal & replacement of the seal can take place where as not to damage it during installation.
Some seals if aren't put it perfectly straight will kink the rubber and jeopardize the whole job.
And the worst thing that can happen after that big job is to have a leak. It must be done right without taking short cuts.
Its a $10.00 part but $300 -$1000 OR MORE to put it in.

MY 2003 ACURA SE LIGHT CAME ON MY NEIGHBOR HAD A TESTER IT SHOWED P0740 TCC MALFUNCTION WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?


Torque Converter Clutch. It has to do with the transmission. It could be a small issue such as a trans. fluid and filter change. Or could be the solenoid failing. At worst, the torque converter is shot...transmission failure.

My transmission shifts really good but when im in overdrive driving a steady 60 its slips just a little and slips back, continues till its hot and quits no more slipping


Torque converter lock up clutch is slipping, not good, Its not that it quits slipping when warm, it quits WORKING when warm and is not even trying to lock up any more. Need to have this repaired right away or severe damage will result. Depending on what year it is depends on what is needed for repair. Up until like 2000 it requires the valve be modified and torque converter replaced, after that its seals and torque converter. Any competent trans shop should be able to repair easily.
