I have a 1998 Acura 3.2 TL and the transmission stopped working. I got a "Check Engine" light and a few Min. later was no longer connected to the engine. My mechanic says it gives an Transmission Error Code: P0740 ... something about the Torque Converter Clutch. He thinks the only fix is to replace the transmission. A friend suggested to try replacing the dirty ATF with new clean ATF and two cans of Sea Foam Transmission cleaner. Is there anything that might work other than a new transmission?
Chris, you helped me with a Ford Winstar Trans. problem in the past. I changed the shift position sensor and it's been working ever since. Thankx again !
