P0740 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction Driving the vehicle with this problem and not attending to it asap may cause further damage. When you feel a problem and or see the engine light on, use your head wisely and have a reputable transmission shop go through a complete diagnostic procedure, in most cases this is a fluid problem, but since you serviced the trans that can be ruled out, if you haven't changed the TCC solenoid yet do so, I was unclear about what you replaced, I assume the shift solenoid's, if you have replaced the TCC solenoid then the problem is either in the wiring to the trans or inside the trans in the torque converter clutch circuit or the torque converter itself, which is a all to common failure in these Vans, if the TCC is ok replace the torque converter, that of course requires removing the trans, this job will require a lift, it is just about impossible on the ground.

I have been getting the code p0740 it says something about the torque converter clutch circuit. it doesn't seem to be going into over drive. dose anyone have any suggestions I can try.


On some cars, there is a TCC solenoid in the transmission which can be replaced by removing the bottom pan. In some cars this solenoid can't be accessed without major disassembly.

How bad is it to replace epc solenoid on a 4T65-E automatic gm transmission


the side pan will have to be removed and axle shaft plus lower left side of the subframe for clearance and then remove the valve body assy ..there are several ball bearings positioned in strategic locations for pressure control that is not put back in the right position this trans will not shift correctly also when bolting the valve body back special torque sequence must be performed or the trans will still have a harsh shift . I recommend that a qualified transmission shop do the work on this trans or you are throwing away your money ...sorry

03 Toyota 4runner 4wd 4.7l had codes p0771 , p0986, and p2716 with vsc light on. Told to replace trans. Replaced with used and now has p0778 and p2716 now with vsc light on and still harsh shifts


Who told u to replace trans?..first thing should have been done was check wiring and connections at transmission and ECM and between the 2...also need to check the pressure control solenoids B and D...its possible the ECM is acting up especially since P2716 came back twice.

I am getting P0700 and P740 what do they mean? P0740 states that TCC Circuit Malfunctioning, what does that mean? I took my car to a repair shop and was told that it would cost me $1400 to fix it. I would...


P0700 is an information code from the transmission controller to the engine controller(computer) it says "hey I'm having trouble making the trans do what I want it to!" P0740 is a trans code saying that the TorqueConvertorControl system isn't working. Could be the solenoid pack, valve body or the torque converter itself. I would recommend to leave this for a pro! $1400 is a fair price.

2000 Honda Accord Check Engine light on p0740


YOU HAVE A TORQUE CONVERTER PROBLEM. TORQUE CONVERTER CONTROL CIRCUIT MALFUNCTION CODES CAN COME FROM ELECTRICLE TO INTERNAL MALFUNCTION. IF YOU START EXPERIENCING A HARD SHIFT OR FREE SPIN TO HARD SHIFT DON'T BE SURPRISED. TRY CHANGING FLUID. THIS MAY HELP. HONDA WOULD HAVE REPLACED TRANS IF UNDER 105 k FOR FREE. IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE TRANS. BUY ONE FROM HONDA, 3 YR WARRANTY AND AS CHEAP AS A REBUILT TRANS. HAVE A QUALIFIED PERSON INSTALL, YOU WILL SAVE ABOUT $500 DOING IT THIS WAY. GOOD LUCK
