I have a 2008 Corolla CE with automatic ******, and 116K miles. I got the check engine light and took it into the dealer. They checked it and said i have a P0741 problem, torque converter lock up a


i don't know the cost to fix, you can drive it with a converter lock up out of overdrive but the RPM will be higher and you will lose fuel efficiency, if you drive over 60 you chance overheating.

Hi Team, Good Afternoon. I purchased a 2005 Toyota Corolla 1 month ago (Used Car). As soon as I got the car I got the check Engine light. I took the car to Toyota of Irving and they told me that it was...


Did you buy this from a dealer? if so, you should have taken it back ASAP I dont know why you didnt have the Toyota Dealer fix the car, now your in the middle of a mess, getting 2 shops involved, and the car still has a problem. When you bought the car, whoever you bought it from, knew there was a problem, cleared the code and it took a while for the check engine light to come back on. So now you will just have to pay someont to fix the car. The trans shop told you it needed a converter and solenoid, the problem is still there, so make it their problem. I think you need someone who knows toyota . theres no recall that I know of. Recalls are free, anyhow. . ecm is warranteed 8 years or 80k miles. Have the dealer check it out. Have them Check Bulletin TC008-04 and T-SB-0378-08

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???

P0741 torque converter stuck off code - 2004 Toyota corolla


P0741 deals with internal transmission torque converter slip. A proper scan tool that is capable of reading the sensor's data inside the transmission would show the slipping torque converter and the fluid temperature.
It is critical to know exactly what conditions are present when the code stores. If the codes were not erased, they could be old codes in it's history.

Go back to the transmission shop or where you had the work done on replacing the TCC solenoid and have them read and clear the codes history. As mentioned, they could be old codes that is being read prior to your repairs.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck, Have a shop verify line pressure, and provided no valves in the TCC hydraulic circuit are worn, replace the torque converter. Also, Lubegard Shudder Fix will at least fix this for awhile. Or try a transmission flush by a shop that uses BG brand products.

Code P0741 for the diagnostic for Toyota Corolla 2006 = Check engine light came on. 129,000 miles


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.

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.

Got a 'recommended' tranny fluid exchange at 126K miles...not 'service engine light" on with codes, tranny sticking in drive less than 1500 miles later. planning to go back to the dealership to find out...


No...I recommend complete transmission fluid exchange every 50 to 75K miles. When I say "complete" that includes torque converter and radiator cooler.
Transmission oil never wears out but the detergents and conditioners in the oil do and filters get plugged with normal wear and tear debris.
Performing the complete exchange will help prolong the transmissions life and keep it preforming properly.
I would guess there is another problem causing your issue or the dealer may have left something loose during the service.
I would return to the dealer and explain your problem and see what they do recommend and ask them to scan the vehicle for trouble codes as there may be a "B" code that would not turn the service engine light on.
Good luck,
Regards,

2005 toyota corolla s transmission fluid


The cleaning is by flushing. DO NOT LET THEM FLUSH YOUR TRANNY! It will do nothing but damage the tranny.


For as fluid. the 3.2 quarts is if you dont drain the torque converter. If you drain the converter then it will take about 14 to 16 quarts.


The reason i say do not let them flush the tranny is because they force the fluid backwards through the system and that will damage it. Also if the tranny is almost on its last "leg" and you may not know it. Then all that will do is speed the process up.
