Customer Question

I have a 2005 honda accord automatic v6. For a few months it had a short, maybe a one second delay going into first. About a week ago I took a couple hour car ride and it started to shift hard after then. Over the week it has slowly gotten worse and now it has started to have issues while driving shifting through gears and on occasion feels like it goes out of gear completely and will just rev. Is there something outside of a new transmission that could be the issue?

DTC P0741: Torque Converter Clutch Hydraulic Circuit Stuck OFF

NOTE: Record all freeze data and review General Troubleshooting Information (see GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION ) before you troubleshoot.

  1. Warm up the engine to normal operating temperature (the radiator fan comes on).
  2. Make sure that the transmission is filled to the proper level, and check for fluid leaks.
  3. Drain the ATF (see step 3 ) through a strainer. Inspect the strainer for metal debris or excessive clutch material.

    Does the strainer contain metal debris or excessive clutch material?

    1. YES - Replace the transmission.
    2. NO - Replace the ATF (see step 4 ), then go to step 4.
  4. Clear the DTC with the HDS.
  5. Choose Shift Solenoid E in Miscellaneous Test Menu, and check that the shift solenoid valve E operates with the HDS.

    Is a clicking sound heard?

    1. YES - Go to step 6.
    2. NO - Replace shift solenoid valve E (see SHIFT SOLENOID VALVE REPLACEMENT ), then go to step 10.
  6. Run the engine until the engine coolant temperature reaches 176 °F (80 °C).
  7. Choose Clutch Pressure Control (Linear) Solenoid A in Miscellaneous Test Menu, and test the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valve A with the HDS.

    Is the system OK?

    1. YES - Go to step 8.
    2. NO - Follow instructions indicated on the HDS by the test result. Go to step 10 if any part was replaced.
  8. Test-drive the vehicle at 55 mph (88 km/h) for 2 minutes while monitoring the vehicle speed with the HDS.
  9. Monitor the OBD status for P0741 in the DTCs/Freeze Data in A/T Mode Menu for a pass/fail.

    Does the result indicate FAILED?

    1. YES - Faulty torque converter mechanism, torque converter clutch hydraulic circuit, lock-up shift valve, or lock-up control valve, or replace the transmission.
    2. NO - Intermittent failure, the system is OK at this time. If the tester indicates NOT COMPLETED, return to step 8 and recheck.
  10. Clear the DTC with the HDS.
  11. Test-drive the vehicle for several minutes under the same conditions as those indicated by the freeze data.
  12. Monitor the OBD status for P0741 in the DTCs/Freeze Data in A/T Mode Menu for a pass/fail.

    Does the result indicate PASSED?

    1. YES - Troubleshooting is complete.
    2. NO - Return to step 5 and recheck.
