Question about Honda Civic
My 95 odyessy made grunching sound when put in drive the other day what ever gear i tried it contiued to made noise turned engine off put in park restarted and drove home normal is this a torque converter prob?
Without actually hearing the noise it is difficult to pinpoint this issue. It may have been a shift solenoid "spazm" if you will. Or a number of other things. I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it becomes a frequent occurrence, or the check eng. lamp comes on or something. Has it had any shifting problems or other symptoms??

It could very well be a restriction in the exhaust like a stopped up cat converter. I doubt if it is a torque converter,that may make it slow to get to speed but shouldn't effect hwy speeds.
You can check this vehicle for an exhaust restriction very easy by going to the DPFE sensor and measuring exhaust back pressure with a vacuum/pressure gage. It will be either silver or black in color will have 2 rubber hoses hooked to it going down to metal tubes that hook into the exhaust.It will have a 3 wire connector with the color of the wires being BN/WH,BN/LG,OG. Disconnect one of the rubber hoses from the sensor and hook the vacuum/pressure gage into the hose.You should have less than 1 psi at idle,then press accel to wide open throttle and take a reading,it should be no higher than 3-4 psi. Anything more is an exhaust restriction.

This is a damaged torque converter and you may have a blown shift solenoid as well. check the fluid level. i suspect major torque converter damage.

P0740 is a Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction, you will need to have just this circuit tested, it is mostly just a defective Torque converter clutch solenoid in the trans or a defective connection to the trans, u do not need another overhaul.

Most of the handas have a pick up inside the distributor behind the rotor button take off the black cover inside the distributor and two screws hold it on with two wires on it. If that go's bad your car will not start i would start there
