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.

Could have, sure sounds like it's connected. I assume it's never had this code before. The Dealer should be willing to check it out and find out what is going on for you = no charge. If you get a run-around form the Dealer, then call the Toyota Number on you recall notice, they will help you resolve the issue.

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

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.

2000 E-350 V-10. P0174 with exhaust fix

Before I even finished reading this i knew you had a clogged cat. If you have fixed everything you mentioned i would lean towards a clogged cat. This is a large reason this code pops up.

To check this you could pull that cat out and drive around and see if the code comes back, make sure to stay away from the police though.

Check engine light is on

no such thing as a catalytic computer... there is a catalytic converter ... part of the exhaust system so they may now be "guessing" that it's an O2 sensor. take the car to autozone... they will scan the codes for free.... post the codes here tho the lads and lasses there are pretty clever and will probably tell you what the codes mean.

P0174 code

I had the two codes, p0171 and p0174, lean mixture bank 1 and 2. I found this is a common occurance, I have a 1999, 3.8L 6 CYL. The cause is the isolator bolts for the intake manifold. The original equipment bolts had rubber material not compatible with oil, the replacement bolts have a oil compatible rubber seal. The replacement kit is available from, ( Chelmsford,Ma.) the whole kit includes the new bolts ($113 from FORD), the upper and lower intake manifold gaskets, the front rocker cover modified for the EGR valve, a new egr valve and hose, and another vaccum hose. The whole kit is only 79.95, free shipping, I recieved it the next day, to Barrington NH. The repair was easy and only took a couple hours using the most basic hand tools. anyway there is a good web page that helped tremendously, have fun, easy and cheap, FORD dealer wanted 300 for the parts and four hundred for the labor. Should be a free recall due to their darn DUMB engineering dept. FORD is killing America.
