Hello there my name is Clara I have a 2001 acura TL 3.2 liters thats reading the code P0740

P0740 is the torque converter malfunction code. The converter is in between the engine and transmission. The fluid that you are seeing is transmission fluid. It needs to go to a mechanic to narrow it down from there.

What's are the signs that my starter on my 2006 Acura RL is Bad??? I have full power inside my car, it won't start....

Could be the battery isn't charged enough to turn the motor over. Try jumping it and listen under the hood for any grinding or metalic sounds. You can have lights inside but not enough to start the motor.

I have 97 Acura RL 3.5/V6, got 'Check Engine Light' on (OBD Code P0740) about a year, my car is running OK, except slightly low fuel economy (19 Miles/Gallon). My questions are: 1)Could it be just Solenoid...

it will be a solenoid
the code p 0740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid ---circuit malfunction===causes --wiring--TCC-- ECM /? TCM ( transmission control module
it is not a transmission problem so leave it alone
it is an electronic control problem so check wiring and connections and if it is either the solenoid or the TCM replace what is faulty
take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop have an tranny oil change done , have the bands and clutch pack s adjusted and have them check the TCC solenoid and TCM for correct operation
probably find that there will be an improvement in the fuel consumption after that
