Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu

Open Question

I have a 3.1 liter 6 cylinder automatic chevy malibu with error code P0741 Torque clutch converter solenoid circuit (performance or stuck off). I had it initially diagnosed, and the engine light went away for 3 days, then came back, so I made an appt. with a mechanic, and 3 days later, the light turned off by itself (before I gave it to the mechanic). He said it was locking up perfectly fine, and everything was running perfectly smoothly. On my way home (after they had closed) I received the engine light on AGAIN. Is there any known problem I should tell the mechanic to look for? or what would the solution to this be?

SOURCE: P0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance

it's either the tcc solenoid inside the valve body not engaging or the converter itself is on it's way out probably due to bad seal.. change that also if you go the converter route..check also the ground to the solenoid and make sure it's getting enough voltage. make sure the fluid is up to date and flushed before all of the above. and remember after solenoid install car wont drive right for a few miles until computer picks up new solenoid or get new transmission installed

firstly it could be that the check engine light is mal-functioning or not. why not drive it as they said and if after that its still on get back to us.
