  • mono_175 Mar 23, 2011

    so you think the inter part of the trany is good. They just didn´t change the solenoids. So should I change the tranys fluid for the correct one ATF + 4 I only have the problem with the 1,2,3,4 SHIFTS AROUND 45 TO 50 MPH RUNS GOOD

Hi, the governor solenoid is part of the car transmission which also needs to be changed whenever there is a repair on the car transmission. The governor sensor and solenoid are a very common failure in that transmission. When one or both fail the vehicle will start to act up. You need to replace it..

The govenor solenoid and sensor only control the 1-2 and 2-3 shift.If you are not having problems above 40 mph then you will need to replace both of these.

    The ATF+4 is good stuff but not critical to operation.This transmission has two shift solenoids,a govenor solenoid ,a govenor pressure sensor and an output speed sensor.The shift solenoids are for lock-up torque converter and overdrive function.This is basically just a hydralic transmission with the govenor removed and an electric solenoid creating the hydralic govenor signal.You can check the operation of the gov solenoid and sensor by using a scan tool that has data stream capability and looking at desired gov pressure and actual gov pressure.These two values should be within 2 psi of one another all the time,if not replace both.These will cause eratic shifting ,early shifts,late shifts and no shifts.Govenor pressure should match road speed or close to it,example 5mph=5psi govenor pressure and 30mph=30psi gov pressure.The computer will comand a certain govenor pressure based off of driveshaft speed and that is where the output speed sensor comes in.The driveshaft will turn about three and a half times the speed of the tires ,so just look for a constant reading at a given speed to make sure it is functioning.Also make sure you are checking the fluid in neutral and not park,this transmission does not prime the torque converter in the park position and can create a bogus fluid reading.Let me know if you have more questions.

    The durango cable should not be a problem,this cable controls pressure and shift points in the transmission.There is a button on the part of the cable where it mounts to the bracket on the intake manifold.You can depress the button and move the cable closer and farther away from the throttle lever.Closer=less pressure and early shifts,farther =more pressure(firmer shifts)and later shifts.Good luck and feel free to ask if you need anything.

Dodge Ram 3500 skips from 1st to 3rd gear, had rebuild after still the same issue. Any advice?


Governor pressure controls the 1st and 2nd shifts. After that is the 3 and 4 solenoids. you would need to look at the pressure when driving(takes a scanner). pressure is 20 to 30 PSI from 1st to 2nd, depends on acceleration. After that the pressure will jump to 100+ psi. Did you replace the governor solenoid and sensor? They are on the passenger side of the transmission and sit in a block that detaches from the valve body.

Really needs to go on a scanner to see. But if you want to throw money at it.. Replace the TCC solenoid, governor pressure solenoid and governor pressure sensor. All these can cause it. Also when your down there, check the wires and plugs to them. Make sure they have good/tight connections. And check the plug going to the transmission for corrosion.

If your fluid level is good. I would then order correct governor pressure sensor, transmission shift solenoid also. Including new filter and pan gasket and atf +4 and install the new parts.

Po748 can tcc solenoid or vehicle speed sensor cause this code


One question? Did you clear the codes out of the system with a scanner? I believe that's the only way to do it now,unlike the old days when you could rest by disconnecting the battery. Hope this helps.

P1740 trouble code on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500


There is one solenoid assy with two solenoids on it. One for the TCC and other for OD. in my experience, P1740 is caused by a couple of things. The torque converters are a subject of trouble for one - I always replace them - the other are the input sealing rings on the input shaft. Older designs leak pressure. Always replace with the plastic - **** end type which is the update today. P1740 has nothing to with the governor solenoid or sensor

My 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 keeps giving me trouble codes with the latest one being a P1740. The code before was for the governor sensor which i have had replaced both the governor sensor and the governor...


For a few years, at least in my area, there was a issue with the tcc solenoid. It involved not only replacing the solenoid( dropping the pan and unbolting from the valve body) but also flashing or updating the control module.once both repairs are complete you should have no problems. A good dealer will help you out.

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.
P1740 TCC O/D SOL PERFORMANCE (GAS)
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.
Possible Causes
* ENGINE DTCS PRESENT
* TRANSMISSION DTCS PRESENT
* TRANSMISSION TEMPERATURE TOO COLD
* OIL PAN CONTAINS EXCESSIVE DEBRIS
* 3-4 SHIFT SOLENOID
* SHAFT OR SEAL DAMAGE
* TCC SOLENOID
* TORQUE CONVERTER
