DTC P0741 TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH SOLENOID PERFORMANCE (SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE SL)

There are several possible causes for this code. Yes, it COULD be that there is damage inside the transmission that will require transmission removal and overhaul. However, I have fixed this code a number of times by simply replacing the shift SL solenoid which is mounted externally on the transmission housing.

I would recommend taking your car to a shop that specializes in transmission repair and get a second opinion.

    I have this same code and my fluid smells burnt. I just replaced the fluid a couple months ago and I added an additive to it at the recommendation of the car parts store. I might have added too much additive. would that cause this?

While driving my car over drive light comes on in a few min. the car dies


Does it die at stops or with foot off throttle and coasting? The overdrive light coming on like that is the transmissions equivalent of the engine check engine light. Fault has been detected and code stored. Would suspect with information provided that the torque converter clutch is locking up but not releasing. You may be able to have this code retrieved with an OBD2 scan tool or at local parts store. You are looking for codes in the 700 range as these are all transmission related codes. ie P0741 or P0742. The P0742 is for torque converter clutch stuck on. P0741 is TCC stuck off

Does P0741 mean a real transmission issue and/or ECM problem?


Just take car to AutoZone to use their Diagnostic Code Reader and then they can look it up and tell you what is wrong and part that you should replace.

I have been getting Service Engine Soon message on my dashboard for last 15-20 days. When checked for the code it said P0741. What could be the problem ?


The OBDII code P0741 is vague. It indicates a transmission issue but isn't specific due to all of the components contained in the transmission. It's best to have it checked out at either a dealer or a transmission shop to avoid doing any further damage.

I've had transmission overhaul kit performed Oct 2007 on 2001 Cad Deville: incl upper/lower valve body w/solenoids,imput carrier, converter @ 77K miles. My check engine light came on a wk ago at 91K...


yes they are all right, i suspect that this vehicle uses encrypted software for the gearbox computer and this is the reason for the different codes ,i never use a code reader as on europeon cars they just show cannot connect to vehicle ,i use a voltmeter and a dwell meter plus a frequency meter and a scope to diagnose problems .So i suspect

P0741....Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off


P0507....Idle Control System RPM Higher Than Expected

that this dealer doesnt have the correct diagnostic software because their code is a generic code as well as the first one ,A GM dealer code would have been P1507 and this code doesnt exist in the GM list of codes ,i think they are both right and need attention but the gearbox code is a fault with the front clutch operating mechanism ,i would advise ripping teh autobox out and fitting a manual gearbox ,lot less hassle
