02 Chrysler Town and Country Service Engine Light

Van has 68k mi (3.3 V6) Last week the engine light came on - Auto Zone rep said the code was P0700 (transaxle control module fault) He suggested that I get the trans filter/fluid changed and reset the code.
I did that but the engine light came on again after two days of driving.(I am still not noticing any obvious problem with the trans shifting) I brought it to the dealer yesterday. They said the fault code was P0740, they said the fluid level was ok and no leaks, clutch test was ok, but the torque converter test failed. They want to pull out the trans for further "damage inspection" (repair est $2,000) Any suggestions? Go for 2nd opinion? Will I cause additional damage by driving with a faulty torque converter? I would appreciate any advice.

If your torque converter is starting to come apart it could cause severe damage to the rest of the transmission. If it is affordable I would try a second opinion though.

You may have a bad oxygen sensor, but there are a number of different things that could be wrong. Is your check engine light on? If your check engine light is on that means you have an electrical problem. If you take the van to a place such as Auto Zone or Advanced Auto they will hook it up to a computer or code reader, and they will be able to nerrow the problem down for you free of charge. I hope this helps you out. Good luck.

Has the service engine soon light come on ?

This could be caused by a lot of different things, don't replace parts until you know for sure what the problem is otherwise you will just be throwing your money away,

If the service engine soon light IS on then go to auto zone and have them get the codes, on your year you may have to have them turn the ignition key on and off five times, then count the number of flashes of the service engine soon light and then look up the codes in a haynes repair manual for your specific vehicle.

Go to your local auto parts dealer. Most of them will read your codes and give you the meaning of them. Auto Zone is one that always provides this service for free and lots of others do too.

Turn the key on and off 3 cycles ending in on position (rapidly) watch odometer, codes should cycle through, if you see a p0700 it is going to be a transmission overhaul. :(
