Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series
Hi, P0741 essentially it means the transmission is trashed.
The torque converter has a lock-up clutch inside to mechanically couple the transmission to the engine above 40 miles per hour. that improves fuel economy.
The code is generated when the converter isn't locking up. unfortunately the only reason that happens is debris from wear inside the transmission gets into the hydraulic passage where the oil flows to the torque converter clutch and blocks the oil flow. when that happens the converter can't be engaged. the wear comes from the internal components in the transmission.
You can try flushing the transmission and replacing the lock-up solenoid but 99 out of 100 times you'll have to replace the transmission.
See a Saturn specialist to check it out..

P0741 is a code for - Torque Converter CKT Performance OR Stuck Off
First, check the TCC fuses in the fuse panel inside the car. Make sure the transmission fluid is filled to the proper level as well. The TCC solenoid is located in the body valve. You can't replace this by yourself. You must replace all solenoids in the valve body because of the change in design. You might want to change the bus plate as well. This is kind of expensive. This might helps the slamming you experience when going in reverse. I think you need to put in a complete body valve, check the trans-axle connection at the top of your transmission for contaminated transmission fluid.
