jtec I would ask is this a 4.0L (42RE) or a 4.8L (545rfe)?
... WHY - I think there are different definitions for p0740.

Are there ANY other codes or issues?
Have you looked at fluid level, color and smell, any particles ?

GrandRustbucket Ill have to look into the lock up solenoid repair. I saw one video and it didn't look super difficult. Looks like the transmission can stay in?
