    Do you have the details for passing an emissions test after clearing codes so it will read ready signals? I am having trouble justifying $2700 on my 2001 DTS w/ 165,000mi.

    you are actually one of the lucky ones -

    with BOTH P0741 and P1860 codes - your problem IS the solenoid -
    and NOT the expensive torque converter problem -

    the solenoid can be replaced without removing the trans -
    so your repair should be in the "couple of hundreds" - not "thousands"

    I suspect that was something using the $3500 Tech II that the dealers have. I am surprised that worked because you usually have to drive it a while for the system to pass the "readiness" tests. Uncle Sam new we would clear the codes and then have it tested, so the "readiness" test was built in to OBDII to prevent that. You MAY be forced to go back to the dealer and have them perform their magic.

    Does the reason of this extremely high cost of repairing P0174 error , due to labor cost or replacement parts ????

    P0174 is a lean fuel condition. I assume you mean P0741? If so, yes it's labor. The drivetrain has to come out and the trans separated and opened. Parts are a bit expensive as well because it is recommended that the TC also be replaced, but most of it is labor.

    Yeah, for sure ,, three numbers sticked in my mind long a go ......

    I see that the labor cost in your region is far more expensive than my region ......
    replacing plenum cost me around 26.6 $ only ,,,,

    So, I wonder if deville's users in my region can take the advantage of the low labor cost with P0741 and similar problems ....
    Also the same manner may apply able on northstars with head gasket problem ....

    Yes, this is precisely what I had to do on my '03 DeVille with the P0741 code. I DID have the TC replaced, as well.......
