SOURCE: 2000 Impala LS, 3800 engine has been 'missing'

you sure its missing and not a torque converter shudder . as a auto tech some times its hard for me to tell the difference. it it was missing it would throw a miss fire code not a torque converter code at 126 k sounds the the trans needs to come out and a good tech needs to rebuild it

i dont think so!! first of all, tcc is mounted on tranny, and eficiency below result bank 1. sounds like a bad 02 sensor, try changing front sensor,go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your model and year. they are based on a complete tear down of car. for about 20.00, if ya cannot find tcc ask auto parts store,

SOURCE: my check engine light was on and the transmission

You will need to take it to a shop to have your torque convertor solenoid and circuit checked.The torque convertor solenoid has a ball ans seat in it and the ball gets stuck at times and lets your convertor stay engaged. the solenoid shouldn't be more than 50.00 and about 2-3 hrs labor cost,plus top off trans mission fluid.

SOURCE: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Stuck On

the torque converter clutch circuit is inside the torque converter and is not something u can repair, the torque converter must be cut apart and rebuilt by companies who specialize in this, so all you can do is pull the transmission out of the car and replace the torque converter with a rebuilt or new unit.

SOURCE: What would it cost to fix a torque converter stuck

It may be as simple as a short in the wire or a bad TCC solenoid that needs to be replaced. The most would be just under $200.00 with parts and labor with transmission fluid and filter replaced.
If your lucky, you may find where the issue is if it's a wire that is shorting out. Inspect your TCC switch on your brake peddle and it may just need to be readjusted. The other place would be a short to the transmission harness where is connects to the transmission. Once all electrical connections have been inspected, then your going to have to move on to having a transmission shop replace the TCC solenoid replaced.
TCC always locked: TCC apply solenoid circuit shorted to ground, TCC solenoid blockage (easy fix in pan), or TC broken (must remove trans and replace TC).
Thank you for using fixya and most common would be a ground problem, good luck and hope it's will cost you nothing if you find it.

What is code po741?

P0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off

This means that the lock up Torque Converter is not locking up as it should at highway speed or 35 mph and up (I learned that figure in school for Oldsmobile automobiles).

It can lead to less fuel efficiency.

Hope this helps.

My 2003 SAAB 9-3 check engine light and transmission light came on giving codes PO741 torque converter CKT performance or stuck off and PO743 torque converter circuit electrical what does this mean

unfortunately this means you need to get yourself to a trusted transmission repair facility very quick. the torque convertor on your vehicle is not operating the way it should. this is going to be an expensive repair, i tell you this so your not suprised. but do your homework and find someone with a great reputation for their work. dont take your saab to just anyone. these cars can get really screwed up without the right people workin on it. the transmission will need to come out.
