SOURCE: where is the torque converter

If you are having an issue with the TCC, replace your torque convertor. There is no easy way to do this. This type of repair is best left to transmission experts. It is involved just to get the transmission out. If you would like instructions to do so, let me know.

SOURCE: clutch replacement 2wd 3.9 v6 2000 dodge dakota

If the clutch was worn out, the transmission would not go into reverse or low gear with the engine running.
This clutch is activated by hydraulic pressure like your brakes. The hydraulic part may not be working correctly.
To replace the clutch you have to remove the transmission.

Ok my 97 dodge dakota v8 automatic transmission will start without an issue, but as soon as I go from park to drive or reverse it will jerks it, then die, I'm hoping it's not an issue with the torque...


Sounds like the torque converter clutch is locked up. May just need a new TCC solenoid or it could possibly be a failed torque converter. This just happened to me and I figured out that it was in the valve body by disconnecting the connector on the transmission that goes to the solenoids on the valve body. This immediately unlocked the torque converter so I could move it into the garage to get it apart. Then, I changed the complete valve body and that cleared up ALL of my transmission problems!
Good Luck! I hope this helps.

My 2007 dodge with 5.9 diesel is showing engine malfunction light and error code of P1740, failed TCC or overdrive solenoid. The truck seems to run ok in overdrive but I don't understand what the TCC...


Code P1740-Torque converter clutch did not lock up when the PCM sent the command. Enabling conditions: No engine or transmissions codes are present, vehicle speed was under 70 MPH, TPS was under 33% open. When the PCM commanded the torque converter to lock, no change was detected in engine speed. Blocking action: This code can block the following monitors: none.

Testing: Check torque converter solenoid for proper operation.

NUMBER: 21-11-00
GROUP: Transmissions
EFFECTIVE DATE: October 02, 2000
SUBJECT: 46RE Transmission MIL Due To DTC P1740 - TCC or OD Solenoid Performance
OVERVIEW: This bulletin involves the replacement of the transmission pressure boost valve cover plate.
MODELS: 2000 - 2001 (AB) Ram Van 2000 - 2001 (AN) Dakota 2000 - 2001 (BR/BE) Ram Truck 2000 - 2001 (DN) Durango

NOTE: THIS BULLETIN APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 46RE TRANSMISSION BUILT BEFORE AUGUST 01, 2000 (MDH O8O1XX).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer may complain of a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination. Upon further analysis, it is determined that the MIL is caused by Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1740 - Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) or overdrive solenoid Performance. Other than the MIL, the customer may not notice any other condition with the transmission.

This condition may be caused by an intermittent and momentary TCC disengagement condition. The transmission valve body pressure boost valve cover plate has been revised with a larger size orifice hole to address this condition.

NOTE: THE DRB III(R) MUST BE OPERATING AT RELEASE LEVEL 50.4 MDS2 SYSTEM CIS CD2067 OR HIGHER (AVAILABLE THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 2, 2000) IN ORDER TO PERFORM THE REVISED TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH STALL TEST. DO NOT USE EARLIER VERSION STALL TEST TO DETERMINE CONDITION OF THE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH.

Hope helps.

Differential has gone bad in 91 Dakota(V6 auto.). I have access to 89 Dakota (V6 auto). Can I change out the entire rear-end. Can I put the axles from the 91 into the 89 to keep the 6 lug wheel pattern....


91 to 93 can have the same 6 lug pattern. the 89 is strickly a 5 lug. The axles from the 89 will not fit in the 91 differential. Yes it would be easier on you to change out the whole thing and change it to a 5 lug truck. Good luck, from a Chrysler parts employee.
