P0741 torque converter stuck off code - 2004 Toyota corolla

I followed you advice regarding driving my car 2004 corolla that had it's cat coverter, and solenoid replaced but the check engine light is still on. You asked that I get back to you once I drove the car after repairs, so it could go through it's cycles. Well it's 200 miles later and I am following up on the March 16, 2010 request. What else should be done - I still have the same diagnostic code of - P0741.

P0741 deals with internal transmission torque converter slip. A proper scan tool that is capable of reading the sensor's data inside the transmission would show the slipping torque converter and the fluid temperature.
It is critical to know exactly what conditions are present when the code stores. If the codes were not erased, they could be old codes in it's history.

Go back to the transmission shop or where you had the work done on replacing the TCC solenoid and have them read and clear the codes history. As mentioned, they could be old codes that is being read prior to your repairs.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck, Have a shop verify line pressure, and provided no valves in the TCC hydraulic circuit are worn, replace the torque converter. Also, Lubegard Shudder Fix will at least fix this for awhile. Or try a transmission flush by a shop that uses BG brand products.

I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla. The "check engine"


Hi Al,
The check engine light is to show you that the electronic management system has picked up a fault. It may not be major or on the other hand it may be indicating something serious. Which ever it is,it's a good idea to take the vehicle into a shop and have a diagnosis run on the vehicle. Its better than being stranded somewhere a month or so down the line.

Driving my 2001 kia sephiaall sudden hardly was going 30mph..then when got to hwy..same thing and no matter what gear(5spd)would not accelerate.ck engine lite had been on for awhile and our mechanic said...


HAVENT SEEN VERY MANY PROBLEMS WITH THE FUEL PUMPS ON THESE PARTICULAR VEHICLE . YOU CAN TAKE THE 02 SENSOR OUT AND CHECK BACKPRESSURE WITH A GAUGE OR YOU CAN TAKE THE CONVERTER DOWN JUST 4 NUTS AND SEE IF YOUR ACCELERATION IMPROVES . BUT YES A CAT CONVERTER CAN CAUSE A VEHICLE TO BE SLOW TO ACCELERATE AND KEEP IT FROM GOING TO HIGH SPEEDS DUE TO THE BACKPRESSURE ON THE ENGINE . IF YOU TAKE IT TO A MUFFLER SHOP IT SHOULD RUN ABOUT 200.00 TO REPLACE WITH AN AFTERMARKET . IF YOU HAVE A PO420 IN THE COMPUTER FOR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT THAT IS THE LIKELY CAUSE THIS VEHICLE HAS 2 CATS A WARM UP CAT AND A MAIN CAT IT COULD BE EITHER OR BOTH .

Code p0420


Hello.

Normally, the P-0420 indicates a sensor issue; a cat replacement would be needed if you had the P-0420 coupled WITH a
P-0430 code.

What I would do, if I were you, would take the car to a shop that can perform an "induction cleaning", and have that service done. Then, replace the spark plugs, if the car is around 90,000 miles. You may alsop need a front air-fuel sensor (the one on the manifold) replacement.

I would not change the cat until I did the above services. It does not sound like a bad cat just yet.

I have an engine light on to my Toyota Corolla 2003; diagnosed by the autozone OBD11 SCANNER P420. I replaced the oxygen sensor and the light deleted. After driving the car for 30 miles the light came on...


Hi

The trouble areas associated with this code are as follows:
1)Gas leakage on exhaust system
2)Oxygen sensor
3)Heated oxygen sensor
4)Three–way catalytic converter

The idea is to check for exhaust leaks first then the front sensor and rear sensor. If these all check out then the cat needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using fixYa

Engine light


you have a cloged cat converter, or an exhaust leak near the manifold... if you rev it at idle and it sounds loud check under car for loudness, if your driving and your going about 30 and it sounds like 90, its the cat converter, replace is the only fix for converters
