Ok, a P303 means.... Random misfire detected, cylinder #3. As for the transmission problem, I know for a fact that if the PCM feels the engine working too hard, it will deny you overdrive. My recommendation? Change the plugs and wires. BE CAREFUL with the wires, though. If it's a 5.2 or 5.9, the pattern of how the wires are laid out is VERY important. Not just that they're in order, but how they physically set in the compartment. There was a service recall from Chrysler on this, so it should have been taken care of. If so, just replace the wires exactly how they came off. If it's a 4.7, I don't think the layout was such a problem, but on the old Mopar engines, failure to follow the guidelines could result in not just pre-ignition (ping), but detonation (blowing a hole in your piston.) Once you've done all this, completely disconnect the battery (both cables OFF), touch and hold the cables together for at least 10 seconds (MAKE SURE THE CABLES ARE BOTH OFF THE BATTERY!!!!!) to "kill" the ECM's memory, reconnect the battery, reset your clock and radio then give her a drive. Also, get the good wires. The cheap ones are just that - cheap. You'll be replacing them again in about a month. As for the plugs, Champion is OEM, so don't let the register jockey talk you into plugs that cost $5 a piece. Look at the emission decal under the hood - they even put the Champion plug part numbers on there, for us! Too easy :).

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: p1740 code

This is the OD Solenoid. There is a TSB out that covers the 2000-2001 Ram truck.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Oct. 02, 2000
SUBJECT:
46RE Transmission MIL Due To DTC P1740 – TCC or OD Solenoid Performance
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves the replacement of the transmission pressure boost valve cover
plate.
MODELS:
2000 - 2001 (AB) Ram Van
2000 - 2001 (AN) Dakota
2000 - 2001 (BR/BE) Ram Truck
2000 - 2001 (DN) Durango
NOTE: THIS BULLETIN APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 46RE
TRANSMISSION BUILT BEFORE AUGUST 01, 2000 (MDH 0801XX).
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer may complain of a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illumination. Upon
further analysis, it is determined that the MIL is caused by Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC)
P1740 - Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) or Overdrive Solenoid Performance. Other than
the MIL, the customer may not notice any other condition with the transmission.
This condition may be caused by an intermittent and momentary TCC disengagement
condition. The transmission valve body pressure boost valve cover plate has been revised
with a larger size orifice hole to address this condition.
DIAGNOSIS:
1. Warm the transmission to normal operating temperatures.
2. Using the DRB IIIò, perform a torque converter clutch (TCC) stall test. The stall test
has been revised so that the TCC remains engaged for a period of four (4) seconds.
NOTE: THE DRB III MUST BE OPERATING AT RELEASE LEVEL 50.4 MDS2
SYSTEM CIS CD2067 OR HIGHER (AVAILABLE THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 2,
2000) IN ORDER TO PERFORM THE REVISED TORQUE CONVERTER
CLUTCH STALL TEST. DO NOT USE EARLIER VERSION STALL TEST TO
DETERMINE CONDITION OF THE TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH.
3. If the engine stalls as a result of the TCC stall test, then perform the Repair
Procedure.
4. If the engine does not stall, as a result of the TCC stall test, then further diagnosis is
required. The technician may want to consider the following components during
their additional diagnosis: a cut or worn input shaft seals, a missing pump lock-up
circuit check ball, or worn converter hub, input shaft, reaction shaft, and pump rotor.

transmitted, in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording, or otherwise, without written permission of DaimlerChrysler Corporation.
21-11-00 -2-
PARTS REQUIRED:
1 04617015 Plate, Pressure Boost Valve Cover (46RE)
1 02464324AB Gasket, Trans Pan
10(AR) 05010124AA ATF+3, Transmission Oil Type 7176 (2000 M.Y.)
10(AR) 05013457AA ATF+4, Transmission Oil Type 9602 (2001 M.Y.)
REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Clean the pressure boost valve cover plate to remove any dirt or rust inhibitor prior to
installation. The revised cover plate will have a 1.75 mm (0.069 inch) orifice hole
versus a 1.22mm (0.048 inch) orifice hole in the original plate. Make sure it is clean.
2. Using the appropriate Service Manual, Group 21 – Transmissions and Transfer Case,
replace the transmission pressure boost valve cover plate p/n 04617012.
3. Verify fluid level after warming up the transmission and cycling the shift lever several
times.
4. Verify, and if required, adjust the transmission shift linkage and the transmission
throttle valve cable per the appropriate Service Manual procedures.

I have never seen P0000 but P1740 is a standard autotrans code it should have another code with it,P1740 just tells you that the fault is in the automatic transmission.

Code P1740


i think you answered your own question.. torque converter clutch or overdrive solenoid. also your overdrive band could be a little worn and about ready to **** the bed for good but i'd check the other things. if you had transmission work done on it before when they put the torque converter on maybe it didn't get re-seated properly. push and turn it will click do it 2 more times clicking a total of 3 times

Trouble code P1740 on 1999 Dodge Ram 2500


I had the same code on my 2001 dodge 2500. The truck wouldn't shift from 3-4. I pulled the trans pan off and replaced a broken spring ($2.00). It is behind a thin plate with 3-4 small torq screws. You don't have to remove the valvebody. Only took me 45 minutes to fix.

I would like to give thanks to Jeff Russel from Teal automotive. He said this is a very common problem. He sells any part for any automatic Transmision and his prices are very affordable.
Here is a link to the website.

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.
