Hello there my name is Clara I have a 2001 acura TL 3.2 liters thats reading the code P0740

P0740 is the torque converter malfunction code. The converter is in between the engine and transmission. The fluid that you are seeing is transmission fluid. It needs to go to a mechanic to narrow it down from there.

Will not shift into overdrive. od button does cause it to act like somthing is hapening but never does

Probably a toque converter problem. Could be the solenoid in the trans, or just converter failing. How many miles on car? How often do you change the fluid and filter?

Hi guys I have a 2007 Suzuki swift sport and today I noticed a loud humming buzz when I'm idling, it's rather concerning... Would u guys have any idea what it is?

Power steering or toque converter. Check the powers steering fluid and the transmission fluid. Power steering/ Fluid usually helps, Check for leaks and fix. Toque converter, Check the fluid, look at the fluid (how dark it is) smell the fluid is it burnt? If it is low add fluid, but this won't help the noise coming from the toque converter. Eventually it will give out and the vehicle won't move. The sooner you fix this problem, the less it will cost you.

No overdrive

It really has to have a scanner on it to tell. But here are some things you can try. The OD button is in the off position. Try cycling it as you drive. The light could be bad and you don't know it's off. put the shifter in first gear position, up shift manually. Does it go from first to second? Second to third? You could have lost a gear. Usually first. Usual sign for this is no power take off/sluggish. All of these would throw a code. Some wont turn the check engine light on. Again a scanner is needed. Basically the toque converter clutch solenoid is not engaging..Could be internal problems... Dirty and/or the solenoid is bad.

1995 3.3L voyager stalls when downshifting

i could be wrong here but sounds like the toque converter when locked up don't want to let go when you hit the brake or can be a solenoid or a control valve can either try changing filter and fluid are try adding some lucas trans oil to it at the local auto store.

Torque converter locks up and wont release until it cools off

U may need to replace the torque converter and the torque converter clutch control solenoid inside the transmission it is mounter to the valve body, there is one thing you can try 1st, change the fluid in the transmission and the TCC (Torque Converter Clutch) solenoid, use the new GM spec DEXRON VI transmission fluid, there is a good chance you can fix this by doing these cheaper service and part replacement, if that doesn't work the tranmission must be removed and the torque replaced

P1744 enginge code tcc solenoid circuit

DTC P1744 is "TCC - Excessive Slip Detected During Full TCC Engagement". Which means that the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) is disengaged or the EPC pressure is at the minimum.

The most likely cause is a sticking or bad TCC solenoid inside the transmission. You can check the connector at the transmission to make sure it is clean and tight and that it is not damaged in any way.

If the TCC and wiring is okay, then pressure testing of the transmission will need to be done.

A new torque converter from Ford is about $265.00 and about 4 hours labor. Throw in a $40.00 TCC solenoid and I don't think it'll be more than $700.00 at worst.

If the pressure test is good then it's just going to be the $40.00 tcc solenoid and the cost of the transmission oil and filter changed which should be around $150.00

Good luck and hope it's just a loose wire harness to the solenoid which would cost $0.00 and just your time to locate the break in the wire. The other thing to, is to add a transmission fluid additive that would restore the clutch pack in the transmission and Torque Converter.

Fault codes

DTC P1860 is set if PCM detects a continuous open or short to ground in the TCC PWM solenoid circuit.

If your inclinded to attempt to fix this yourself, I have some trouble shooting proceedures that you can use. They are very involved, and could require the trans oil pan to be removed to get access to the solenoid.

If your not up to that, take it in to get it fixed.

TCC PMW solenoid is used to control fluid flow acting on the converter clutch valve.
The Solenoid controls TCC apply and release.
The Solenoid is attached to the transmission valve body. To get to it you have to remove the tranmission oil pan. Changing it should be no problem.
But do you need to replace it? To determine that you have to figure out if it is the wiring that goes to the solenoid or if the solenoid itself is shot.

The PCM uses the TCC/PWM solenoid to control when the torque converter clutch applies and how soft or harsh the TCC apply feels to the customer. The TCC/PWM also controls the release feel of the torque converter clutch. "

Ignition voltage is supplied directly to the solenoid through a fused circuit. The Powertrain control module commands solenoid on or off by applying or removing the ground.

hi is it mannuall or automatic if its mannual you will a clutch lining tool to line the clutch disc before tightening the pressure plate if its auto you need to put the toruqe converter into the gearboxes housing and align the converters forks into the gearboxes oil pump by gently turning the converter and pressing lightly you will feel the converter slotting in keep revolving the converter till its full in be carfull otherwise you will damage the gearbox seal or pump then fasten box to engine and through the starter opening line the flywheel retaining bolts with converter don,t tighten them up until you have all the bolts in
