Torque Converter Clu No RPM Drop at Lockup

Relationship between engine and vehicle speeds indicated failure of torque convertor clutch lock-up system (TCC/PTU sol).

Got this from wjjeeps.com, is the fluid low?

The Orvis has been neglected and needs help. Back on here after a long time. Time to research some help haha

Ok, it looks like you need a scan tool for the following test... I would take it to a good transmission shop if I were you because Automatic transmissions are a pain to work with.







P0740-TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH CONTROL CIRCUIT

When Monitored and Set Condition:
P0740-TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH CONTROL CIRCUIT

When Monitored: During Electronically Modulated Converter Clutch (EMCC) Operation.

Set Condition: Transmission must be in EMCC, with input speed > than 1750 RPM. TCC-L/R Solenoid achieves the maximum duty cycle and can not pull engine speed within 60 RPM of input speed. Also when the transmission is in FEMCC and the engine slips TCC > than 100 RPM for 10 seconds.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
RELATED DTC P0750 PRESENT
INTERMITTENT WIRING AND/or CONNECTORS
INCORRECT FLUID LEVEL
INTERNAL TRANSMISSION PROBLEM - TCC OUT OF RANGE
L/R SOLENOID INOPERATIVE

The Orvis has been neglected and needs help. Back on here after a long time. Time to research some help haha

I have just now started having the same kind of problem with my 2002 cherokee limited. I changed the filter and fluid today. When I got on the highway to take my son home, The trans overe temp light and the o/d off light came on. When I pulled over to check the fluid level, I noticed a little smoke coming ont of trans dip stick. Now I know this can't be good. Has anyone else ran into this problem before. I really dont have the money for this type of problem right now. I dont know what to do. H E L P Please.

I found something on the internet about a recall from 99 to 04 models that mentioned there was not enough flow of fluids through the transmission. Is there anyway to have jeep dealer fix this recall or are there guidelines to recalls. Is there a expired time period that I would have to worry about?

I too have the same problem, after towing my boat on the HWY for an hour. (WJ GC 2003 4.7 v8 45RFE). P0740 comes on and this time Trans Temp alarm light comes on too. I pulled over and after 5 mins of idle the trans cooled down and I drove home more gently with no problems. I also checked the tranny fluid and it looked to be at the right level.

After reading on this forum I am going with the theory that I may have fluid flow issues due to possibly dodgy cooler lines. Fluid flow/low fluid pressure being limited could cause a) Tourque Converter Unable to lock up b) Transmission to overheat.

I also noticed some spots of fluid on my boat trailer, which also points to a tranny leak. After work I will get under the car and have a look.

At best this may be new cooler lines along with a beefier cooler, fluid and filter change. At worst it could be a new/rebuilt tranny :-(
