Hi .

Did you check for malfunction codes before doing all this work .

Or did you do the solenoid pack on assumption .

Po741 is the code i got
Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.

P0741 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance or Stuck Off..

Wiring harness to transmission shorted to ground,

Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid internal short,

Transmission control module (TCM)

In your case i suggest you check the wiring harness first in the transmission that connects up to the solenoid pack this is known to short and cause this code .

But in many cases we have found it better to replace the valve body as this is the problem and not the solenoids .

its the side of the valve body that's is leaking off and causing the code P0741

How confident are you it would be the valve body, harness looks good. Dont want to drop $500 on parts again and still have problem
Expert:  Greg replied 1 year ago.

If the harness and solenoids are good and your 100% then yes the valve body ,

This is a typical fault for this code ..
