Ok, The other day I had a "service Engine Soon" light. The car was shifting really hard, and slamming into each gear. I have found that if I pull over, take my code reader and plug it in, I get a PO742 code. Torque converter circuit stuck on. I proceed to erase that code from the computer, and restart the car and it will run and drive totally fine, as if nothing is wrong. I have been doing it this way for 3 years and the car is running fine to this day. It hasn't cost me a dime in repairs, and I commute 500 miles/week. It's worth a try, because I have heard that if you spend 800-900 bucks to get it "fixed", the problem WILL return some day.

SOURCE: torque converter circuit stuck in

TCC stuck open in a 4T60E can be either the TCC solenoid gone bad,or the actual TCC valve and bore in the valvebody is worn out.I rebuild transmissions for a living,and i have a reamer for the TCC bore that oversizes the bore,and then install an aftermarket oversized valve to restore hydraulic integrity.What happens is,the valve is PWM (pulse width modulated) which means it basically vibrates in the bore,and strokes many many times per second.Well,all this pulsing wears out the bore,so it must be oversized.But when the bore becomes worn out,sometimes the valve will literally get stuck and won't move.

change your fluid and filter in teansmission WARNING :start car and shut it off just before you do because if you dont you will burn the bands up.I recommend Lucas transmittion conditioner as well.My grand prix calls for sythetic 2003 7 quarts so check with salesman and see what kind it calls for and also count the bolts and pattern before you buy so you make sure you have the right one before you start your project.

Check engine code p0137


P0137 - Oxygen (o2) sensor circuit low voltage (Bank 1 sensor 2)
If you have more than one (1) sensor on Bank 1 then it will be the rear sensor. Change the o2 sensor. You may also want to check the following:
  • Repair exhaust leak near the rear sensor (if leak is found)
  • Check for restriction in catalyst and replace as necessary
  • Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit

  • Most likely you will just need to replace the sensor. Hope this helps you.

    P0137


    if that is the only code you have then sensor is most likely faulty. if 4 cylinder engine sensor 2 will be second one in line from the engine. remember if you have more than one code always correct the first one, it could trigger other related codes.

    P0137 issues changed out manifold new sensor new cat converter. Still have p0137. HELP!


    Essentially the same as P0136, P0137 refers to the second oxygen sensor on Bank 1. P0137 means the O2 oxygen sensor's voltage remained low for longer than 2 minutes. This, is interpreted by the ECM as a low voltage condition and sets the MIL. Bank 1 Sensor 2 is located to the rear of the catalytic converter and should produce an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of the catalytic converter. This rear (sensor 2) sensor is less active than the signal produced by the front sensor. However, if the ECM senses the sensor is inactive, this code will set.

    There may be no visible symptoms to the driver, other than the MIL (Check Engine / Service Engine Soon) illumination.

    A code P0137 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
    Faulty o2 sensor Exhaust leak near the rear sensor
    Plugged catalyst
    Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
    High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit

    Hope helps; your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

    Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

    Check engin light on. There are four error codes P0137,P0141,P0342, and P1792. How do I fix it. Will I pass inspection with these codes?


    P0137 Error code Faulty O2 sensor Exhaust leak near the rear sensor
    • Plugged catalyst
    • Short to voltage on O2 signal circuit
    • High resistance or open on O2 signal circuit
    Possible Solutions
    • Replace faulty sensor
    • Repair exhaust leak near the rear sensor
    • Check for restriction in catalyst and replace as necessary
    • Repair short, open, or high resistance on o2 signal circuit
    P0141 Error code means Downstr Heated Oxygen Sensor Heater circuit fault - Bank No. 1.

    - replacement is needed for this issue.

    P0342 Error code means Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Low Input

    P1792 Error code means P1792 means the computer isnt properly programmed so if this code keeps comming back the pcm may need to be replaced

    The other code is your crankshaft position sensor. You need to replace both of the sensors and the check engine light will go off.
