Unless you live in a state that requires an emissions test, forget it. The factory fix is to replaced the converter and internal seals and bushings. These states machines will not let you run a test with the light on.

Your transmission should still work if the solenoid goes bad. It will just shift funny

Got me a complete manual for 199 jeep factory model and found location of each individual unit in question. Manual gives u possible solution to each code and repair and or replace. As a mechanic myself testing, trouble shooting and repair was not that difficult. Shift solenoid was very difficult to get to. Located under the head lamp passenger side.

SOURCE: torque converter solenoid stuck off DTC

There is a solenoid switch that locks up your torque converter to get a 1:1 input for your transmission. This solenoid (or less likely its circuit) does not operate. You probably don't feel the difference in driveability but this definitely affects fuel mileage of the car... The solenoid for your particular application is available for about 60$ Canadian at NAPA auto parts here in Canada. Not too sure about USD$ and labour costs...

What is the meaning of code 1744 in 2004 mercury sable


torque converter clutch stuck or not working properly

May 27, 2014 | 2004 Ford Explorer

Torque converter clutch stuck on


The torque converter clutch solenoid is controlled by the TCM so run the fault codes first/. If you take the solenoid out of the system there is every possibility that the vehicle will not move and if it does the economy will be crap. Best fix the thing properly to start with.

2002 ford escape v6 with trans code p1744 and 741


Unfortunately, the possible issues are numerous. The problem is most likely either your torque converter, or electrical issues with your transmission. Without knowing how the vehicle is acting, if it's drivable, when it trips the codes, etc, it makes it more difficult to accurately diagnose.

Here is what ford says about those codes...

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The torque converter clutch may not engage if one or more of the following conditions exist:
- Stuck converter regulator valve
- Stuck solenoid regulator valve
- Stuck bypass clutch control valve
- Stuck pressure failsafe valve
- Pump bore ring groove depth incorrect
- Worn pump shaft or damaged pump shaft seals
- Pump shaft internal sleeve loose (rattles)
- Turbine shaft seals damaged or missing
- Incorrect Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoid
- TCC solenoid mechanically stuck or electrically inoperable
- Damaged internal wiring harness
- Incorrect gear ratio (wrong sprockets)
- Damaged or worn stator support
- Worn torque converter hub bushing
- Torque converter clutch worn or damaged
Use a scan tool to monitor the following PID's:
- TCC = Commanded duty cycle for TCC solenoid
- TCCMACT = Actual slip across the TCC, measured in RPM
- RPM = Actual engine speed
- TSS_SRC = Actual turbine shaft speed
- TCCRAT = Speed/Gear ratio of torque converter/transaxle

Hope this helps.

Where is the clutch solenoid on montecarlos 2000


This code refers to the electrical side of the torque converter not the inside workings of the converter itself. Check the electrical connector and harness for opens breaks or chaffing. Most of the times the tcc solenoid replacement will fix this issue.

What code po741


P0741 "Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid stuck off"
If the PCM detects high torque converter slip when the TCC is commanded ON, then DTC P0741 sets. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Valve (TCC Sol. Valve) Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). The solenoid controls the hydraulic fluid for TCC apply and release. When the TCC is applied, the engine is coupled directly to the transmission through the TCC. The TCC slip speed should be near 0.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck
