Your car uses a clutch in the transmission that locks the engine to the transmission at highway speeds (40 mph or higher). This saves on gas mileage, as the transmission is a bit more efficient when it's locked. Your solenoid that locks it has failed. It may be expansive to have it fixed. If you don't fix it, it will do not harm, but your mileage will be a bit lower. Check your mileage to see if it's wother fixing the transmission. Any more questions, please reply.

I have a 2012 hyundai elantra and my check engine light came on after 300 km on it. "I took it to the dealership and they said the code that appears is P0741. Is that a major issue?


excessive converter slippage is seen by the vehicle's computer. This code, however, usually results in the computer disabling the converter clutch's application altogether in an attempt to protect the transmission from further damage. All of this is usually going to require replacement of the torque converter.p0741,

Hello: The code you have P0741 means the torque converter is stuck off. Either the solenoid is bad or the torque converter is bad. Troubleshooting with a GM scanner will help to diagnose this problem. Recommend letting a Transmission shop repair this.
