Well my transmission officially blew up due to the torque converter. I suggest dropping the transmission pan then taking the solenoids out and cleaning the hell out of them, drain as much trans fluid as possible and replace the gasket and filter. Replace the trans pan after putting all the solenoids back into place I also suggest using Lucas Stop Slip Trans Fix when refilling the fluid. DO NOT OVERFILL AND DO NOT UNDERFILL. Take your time on putting new good fluid in not cheap stuff. If all this doesn't work or make a change then the next step is to replace your torque converter. This in involves taking the transmission out pulling the T converter out and replacing it you also have to do a fluid change regardless even after you try changing it the first time to see if it fixed your issue. Any shavings inside the torque converter will contaminate your new fluid if the first fluid change doesn't work therefore 2 fluid changes would be necessary if you don't solve the issue the 1st time after cleaning the solenoids. Try these steps and get back to me and we will go from there. I hope this helps as a brand new transmission is 4,000 dollars. Good luck and keep me posted.

    I recently got check engine light on. I still managed to drive the car from Fresno Ca to Los Angeles but I don't want to risk it anymore than I already have. I went to peb boys and they gave me this diagnostic code. Please tell me the fix you described how much should that really cost me?

    well you're more expensive in Calif. I'm guessing here in Ind. it would be around 5 to 6 hundred dollars. There are car repair estimators online if you use google.

SOURCE: where is the oil filter on the 2009 Toyota corolla

I assume that you have a 1.8 engine. The oil filter is in a round metal housing under the engine; you have to remove the housing to access the cartridge type oil filter; the 1.8s do not have a "spin-on" filter.

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.

SOURCE: Code P0741 for the diagnostic for Toyota Corolla

This is a torque converter clutch solenoid code internal to the transmission. the computer has detected a fault in the operation of the solenoid. It will need to be diagnosed by a trained technician and may very likely require internal trans repairs.

2009 toyota corolla, check engine light flashing and engine sputtering. When driving it will randomly go up to 3000 rpms and then bog down. Why.

You need to pull the fault codes with a code reader, you have a misfire in the engine, the fault code will indicate which one, then you do the needed diagnostics to pin down the cause of the misfire.

04 corolla torque converter code

My 2005 corolla is making a horrible noise and shuddering when it comes to a stop. We just had all the solenoids changed and a new ECM that had been recalled by Toyota. We took it out of overdrive and it stopped the noise and the studdering . There have been no codes on this problem as yet.

Any ideas???

Code P0174 05 Corolla

I don't show any po174 for an 05 corolla. But I do show a po741, if thats the code you're getting.
It means theres a problem with the torque converter
clutch system. It could be the tcc solenoid. Either way, it's related to what you just had done.
Good luck.
