It sounds like they misdiagnosed your car if they overhauled your transmission and it's still showing up with the exact same problem.

Are the codes they pulled before the overhaul and after the overhaul the exact same codes?

What causes a 2003 Astro Van Starting problems. Turns over but doesn't fire


Sounds like the problem is no spark to plugs. check for spark to and from coils. also the wires and spark plugs. It needs spark and fuel to start. If check engine light is on, Its a possibility that its a bad cam sensor. Check above first! If light is on you can go to any auto parts store so they can read the codes, with a scanner for free. and tell you the problem area. Good-Day!

How do I reset the computer on my 2004 Astro Van? The mechanic says it has to be reset to see if the error code comes up again, and then take it to him, but he has no time for me to go to have it reset...


Hi Dave.

The proper way to reset the DTC is using an OBDII scanner. Go to the nearest Autozone, ask to do a code scanning and to reset codes.

You can also reset the codes at home but you will need a scanner like this:OBDII Scanner - U480.

Here an example showing how to use a scanner tool to reset the codes.

You can also try disconnecting the battery. That will reset the engine check light until the problem occurs again. It may not clear stored diagnostic codes. Make sure that you have the stereo anti theft code if needed.

Regards.

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.

Problem is we have a 2000 Chevy Astro van that does not start on certain days if it is snowing it starts to misfire and hesitate, the check engine light flashes on and off. put in a new distributor, cap...


On mine I had a control modular next to the coil that was bad and didn't show up on diagnostic. The guys at Auto Zone told me to pull it and they could test it and on the 7th test it failed. Unfortunately my van still died on my way into town after this, but at least I had spark this time unlike in the past.

I do not know if my van sensor is working properly on my 2000 Chrysler Voyager. How can I tell if it is working properly.


I am not sure what sensor that you are talking about. But you can go to Autozone and have it put on their diagnostic computer for free. It will tell you if all of your sensors are working.

Toyota Camry 1998 dashboard light on


yes, that is called a "check eng" light, this may have came on for many different reasons, low eng oil level, low eng. oil pressure, eng. may be misfireing, eng. may be overheating etc. many things can cause this. get hold of a diagnostic scanner and scan for codes. or take it to any shop. theyll scan for you

Transmission won`t go into reverse


Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. The problem you describe could simply be a wiring/connection problem -- no telling at this point. Now, having written that, my suspicion is the LR (Low/Reverse) clutch or the solenoid (hopfully, just the solenoid).

4L60E won't shift to 3rd on 1995 Chevy Astro 2wd


do the pin point tests, these start witjh running a trouble code test, autozone and kragen will do this for free, if u haven't had the trans apart then cross out any crossed wiring issues, but I do think you will find a problem with the 2-3 shift solenoid, either the solenoid has failed or the connector has a problem on the outside of the trans.
