The transmission will not have to be removed for this, however, the valve-body assembly will need removal. This can be accessed by taking off the pan on the transmission.

My 2004 chevy suburban is giving a code po740 and po743. I'm Redington that it may be the torque converter clutch circuit. Any thoughts? How difficult would it be to replace myself?

Not hard. If you have to do it on the ground, it is messy. You have to drop the transmission pan. Buy an internal harness, it comes the the TCC solenoid attached. On the passenger side remove the heat shield. Unplug the transmission control plug. Drop the pan, start at the back and work your way around both side. It will start leaking. Slowly remove the front 3 bolts, let the pan drain. don't remove them completely. At a point, push the pan back up and hold it, remove the last bolts, then dump the rest of the fluid. Remove the filter. Under the transmission control plug, there is a solenoid to remove to get it out. Remove the plug and a 8 mm bolt has to come off with a clip, then pull the solenoid out( don't loose them). Look at the harness and see how it is laid out. The TCC solenoid is in front. You have to remove another solenoid to get it out. It is held in with a clip. Look, you see it. Do not loose this clip. Reach up in the slot and pull the clip out( small screwdriver or pick), pull that solenoid out and remove the bolts holding the TCC solenoid. Pull the TCC solenoid out. Reinstall in the reverse order. This sounds like a lot of work. I do them in about 30 minutes on a lift.

2001 Saturn where is the transmission control solenoid

The TCC is located in the Transmission. You can gain access to the TCC or the Lock-Up Solenoid by removing the Transmission Pan and you will see 4 Solenoids there along with the 1/2, 2/3 and 3/4 Solenoids.

Want shift to over driver

Replace the TCC solenoid, EPC solenoid, Filter and fluid. This can be done by removing the pan. This is a first/quick fix. The other fix is to pull the transmission, go threw it and see what is wrong.

You don't have to pull it to replace the TCC. Remove the pan and you can access the TCC solenoid. 40b12bb6-08f8-4f1c-b959-9bfe6f7b08fb.gif

Where is the TCC solenoid located

It's in the transmission. Remove the trans pan and it is on the solenoid package. But the solenoid may not be the problem. Could be the wiring, plugs(inside and outside the trans), torque converter, or the computer. 7b32d407-41bb-449c-8dd9-0a5f7effbf7f.gif

It also has code po743 and po755

P0743 - Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Electrical
Possible causes- Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
- Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
Tech notes This is an electrical problem code. Could be a problem to the harness to the TCC solenoid, the TCC solenoid connector or the TCC solenoid it self.
P0755 - Shift Solenoid B Malfunction
Possible causes- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid B valve
- Shift solenoid B valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid B valve circuit is open or shorted Tech notes When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

Where is the Torque Converter clutch solenoid located on a 2005 Chevy Cavalier Auto Transmission?

Actually, the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is located within the transmission housing that is easily accessible through the transmission oil pan. The TCC solenoid may vary in location dependent upon manufacture but generally it is located as aforementioned. It can cause your vehicle to stall if stuck open or close because it controls loads to the engine via your torque converter which is located between the vehicle's engine and transmission. Also, make certain that you attempt to change the transmission fluid and filter before changing the TCC solenoid because that may be your underlying issue. If not, simply reuse your fresh oil and change the TCC soleniod.

94 buick park ave runs great but with a light load it shakes, accelerates good and in park or neutral is smooth changed plugs and wires

Several possibilities having to do with the torque converter clutch and TCC solenoid:

1. Replace transmission fluid, use a synthetic Dex VI, do a complete flush with pan removal and filter replacement

2. Check all grounds related to the transmission control solenoids, clean them and ensure good electrical contact.

3. Rebuild transmission, the TCC friction material is worn out.
