P0742: torque converter clutch stuck on. You didn't say what your cars symptoms were but it should be a low idle, stalling, or a vibration when you come to a stop. In any case you will probably want to send the car in for a check-up and go from there.

Three codes p0442 p0340 p0742 2006 Hyundai accent 1.6 it cranks but will not start ?

The first code is for an evaporative emission canister leak and it might be due to a gas cap. The second one is for a cam sensor circuit problem and this will keep the vehicle from starting. The third error is for the transmission torque converter.

I have a 2000 Chevy venture and recently about 6 months ago had the transmission overhauled and now I have code p0742 showing up. Could it be replacing the water pump and fuel pump be causing the code...

Hello: P0742 MEANS THE TORQUE converter clutch is stuck on. The repairs on the water pump and fuel pump should not have caused this. The P0742 could be caused by electrical connection going into the transmission, a dirty/failed torque converter solenoid, debris in the transmission. Recommend you get code cleared at Auto Zone, O'Riely, Advance Auto (they probably won't charge you) and see if code comes back, it may only be a one time incident. If it comes back then it will need to be repaired. How long is the warranty on the trans overhaul, time? miles?

Would a P0742 TCC open code cuase no engagement in

The car most likely needs a new TCC solenoid. These were a common failure in G.M. cars causing the symptoms you were describing. Other symptoms may include: shudder or stalling at stops, car lugging on acceleration, harsh shifts, etc. Car may feel like stuck in second gear on stopping and taking off from stop. I hope this helps.
