SOURCE: can my torque converter sensor cause my transmission not to shift

I think it can and I remember problems with the PCM in the transmission controls had recalls. First check your fluid levels and see if it is low. You may get lucky to just add fluid. You may be better off running your VIN# to see if there were recalls on your car at the dealer. Best of Luck.

I have no one Park Avenue and the code says I have a torque converter solenoid stuck on just wondering where it's located and how hard it is to change

The torque convertor clutch solenoid is inside the transmission. It is behind the lh transmission cover plate. Not exactly an easy fix for someone. A decent garage should charge you about $400-600 to replace, Beware- they will probably try to sell you a whole transmission overhaul!!

Two codes coming up on car even after fixing alot on car now need to figure out low cost ways to fix P0744 & P0722 code issues spent 1,800 on car & have spent 1,400 already in parts & labor.

you need a better mechanic that traces ALL of the possibilities of each code, not just read the code and trow in a part hoping that it's fixed ~ it can be wiring as well, not just plug in a new part as mentioned on the 2nd trouble code to the vehicle speed sensor

P0744 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Intermittent

P0722 Output Speed Sensor No Signal

the first of the 2 looks to be more intensive to trace and find out the problem & the 0722 is the easier job for an intermediate mechanic to trace the wiring for continuity

My 2009 toyota corolla has a code p2757. Its related to a solenoid. how do I go about solving my problem?

well my transmission officially blew up due to the torque converter. I suggest dropping the transmission pan then taking the solenoids out and cleaning the hell out of them, drain as much trans fluid as possible and replace the gasket and filter. Replace the trans pan after putting all the solenoids back into place I also suggest using Lucas Stop Slip Trans Fix when refilling the fluid. DO NOT OVERFILL AND DO NOT UNDERFILL. Take your time on putting new good fluid in not cheap stuff. If all this doesn't work or make a change then the next step is to replace your torque converter. This in involves taking the transmission out pulling the T converter out and replacing it you also have to do a fluid change regardless even after you try changing it the first time to see if it fixed your issue. Any shavings inside the torque converter will contaminate your new fluid if the first fluid change doesn't work therefore 2 fluid changes would be necessary if you don't solve the issue the 1st time after cleaning the solenoids. Try these steps and get back to me and we will go from there. I hope this helps as a brand new transmission is 4,000 dollars. Good luck and keep me posted.

Po741 on 1998 olds auroa

Code 741 is for a problem with the torque converter solenoid circuit.
The solenoid could be faulty, or it could be something else in the wiring or the transmission.
You have to drop the sub-frame and suspension to access the side pan on the transmission. The solenoid is in the side pan.
Not for the amateur mechanic.

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.

94 Mitsubishi Diamante. The car obviously has a torque converter problem since it slips of gears and generates heat and noise. It does not drive since every gear including reverse is like natural. I...

This is not the torque converter -- they don't cause slippage problems.

There is something wrong with your transmission. It sounds like the front pump isn't making it anymore. It would be a good idea to get a "test drive" and estimate from a transmission shop to get a more diagnostic answer to what exactly is wrong, but you can bet it's not the converter.

Do make sure there is ample fluid in the transmission.

Also, sometimes just replacing the filter and the fluid is all it takes. If the filter is starving the pump you'll get this kind of problem. The filter is on the bottom of the transmission, inside the pan. Put a tray under the transmission, then loosen the pan bolts a little to drain the fluid in a controlled fashion.

Replace the filter, put the pan back on (after cleaning the gasket surface clean as a whistle and bone dry), then refill with new fluid.

Changing trans fluid & filter wanting to know how much fluid to buy

2.5L engine - 8.4 qts, 3.0L & 3.8L engines – 12.8 qts.

The capacity specifications are if the transmission is totally empty, and here's the clincher for us average types: including the torque converter and radiator tank.

For us average types, even when doing a transmission fluid / filter change, it does not end up with an empty torque converter.

When you pull the transmission pan for the fluid/filter change, you end up with 4-6 quarts on average. The rest is still up inside the torque converter.

Measure what you drained and start with refilling that amount to put back in to return levels back to normal.

Simply use the dipstick to check level and add as is necessary.

NOTE: This is one of the points of distinction to having the transmission "flushed" - where a professional shop is going to hookup specialized equipment to achieve a full fluid exchange, or you do the flush yourself

Emissions test code comes up as 0743 torque converter circuit problem. how do you fix this on a 1998 ford windstar 3.8l engine?

U have a problem in the transmission torque converter clutch control circuit, most likely the solenoid switch that applies the lock up clutch of the torque converter is defective or a the torque converter itself is defective, the trans pan will need to be removed to check the problem further.

Error codes

Her is the definition and a list of possiable causes.

Code P1740-Torque converter clutch did not lock up when the PCM sent the command. Enabling conditions: No engine or transmissions codes are present, vehicle speed was under 70 MPH, TPS was under 33% open. When the PCM commanded the torque converter to lock, no change was detected in engine speed. Blocking action: This code can block the following monitors: none.
Testing: Check torque converter solenoid for proper operation.
Theory of Operation
The Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) Solenoid is used to engage the TCC which improves fuel economy.
When Monitored
The Torque Convertor Clutch (TCC) and Overdrive Clutch (OD) will be tested each time the PCM requests TCC engagement in 3rd gear and OD.
Set Condition
The DTC will set if the expected RPM drop is not achieved while attempting to engage TCC or OD. This indicates a malfunctioning torque convertor or overdrive clutch.
