Look under the hood on the fire wall behind the engine there is a black cover with 3 tall black what look like nuts. remove them and you will see a relay center, now there should be a brown wire marked timing may be not marked but pretty sure its brown just unplug it and go from there. I sure hopes that gets you going and thanks for using

Yes these codes are associated with the MAF Sensor. One can trip the others as well. I would try removing the MAF Sensor and cleaning it first (brake cleaner or contact cleaner), then if that doesnt work I'd chalk up the bucks for a new sensor.

It's on the driver side frame. It's not hard to install one. Just have to have a special tool to get the line off the filter.

A code P0122 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak
in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.

I found that the code is set for:
P1740....TCC Solenoid or Overdrive Solenoid performance
which indicates that a rather inexpensive fix is in order, not a complete transmission replacement!! The TCC is the solenoid which controls the locking of the transmission converter so that you get better gas mileage with no "slippage" while at highway speeds, which is normal when the converter is unlocked as you slow down. If it is locked and the solenoid fails to release it the car will stall when you come to a stop since the fluid in the converter fails to act as a clutch and the engine is connected directly to the transmission input shaft. If it never locks then the oil in the transmission will overheat at highway speeds since ther "slippage" will always be present in the converter cauasing frictional heating of the oil.
Whenever you get a quote from a shop ALWAYS get at least two more!!! No matter what the job is, even a muffler replacement get many quotes. Go to a reliable transmission repair shop and ask for their opinion. In my humble opinion the shop that told you that you need a new transmission is just hungry for work - stay away!!!!
