    I had to fix mine to pass state emission test.

    TCC solenoid is around $30-40.

    I lowered my cradle using 14mm rods. Cradle has to come down about 10 inches.

    I attached a picture. Yellow arrow points to the TCC solenoid.

    Re: Torque Converter Clutch (p0741 tcc stuck off)

    My service engine light came on a few weeks ago my on '02 STS with 86k, and there were four codes it was spitting out, including this "stuck off" code being mentioned...can't remember exactly what the other ones were, I have it written down on somewhere... Anyways, took it to the tranny shop, and they recommended I get it repaired immediately, since I had already put about 500 miles on since the light came on.

    They ended up replacing the TCC solenoid, EPC solenoid, and input speed sensor, for about $1200. The guy gave me about 3.5 hours of labor off the price, as the original estimate called for close to 13 hours of labor but they got it done in under 10. I probably shoulda shopped around a little more, but this little local shop has always been good to me...anyone else have something similar to this done or could give me an idea if this was a decent price?

    I think my TCC solenoid is not disengaging at low speed. Has anyone experienced this?

    Can you tell me what is involved to lower the cradle? Can I do this in the driveway?

    You need to disconnect the entire front suspension and drivetrain and literally lift the body off the subframe. It's not a driveway job by a long shot.

    There is a thread around here somewhere about some guy doing it under his apple tree.

    Exclamation Re: Torque Converter Clutch (p0741 tcc stuck off)

    I fixed mine in the driveway / garage. Mid 60's winter day.

    About 12 hours start to burping fluids/done.

    I used 14 mm rods to lower the cradle. It has to come down about 10 inches to gain access to the side cover.
    Simply disconnect the 2 large strut bolts. No need to remove axles.

    It can be done.

    Logan--

    I have this problem in my 1999. It has come up before, but always stays off for a long time after resetting. So, I think it must be the solenoid. If I do what you did, where do I position the bolts to support it? It is not clear from your photo. Likewise, if I could talk my mechanic into dropping it down while it is up on a lift, how would he support it?

    TIA-

    Bob

    Only the 2000 and latter use 14 mm. Earlier cars used a different size.

    Anyway, the cradle bolts are replace one at a time with the rods. The rods have nuts and washers.

    Then the cradle is lowered a inch per side, back and forth. Pretty soon the cradle with engine and trans are 10 inches lower, hanging by the rods.

    In this picture, cradle is down, hanging on the rods. Now there is access to the side cover and solenoid.

    Hey--

    Thanks for replying so fast. I got you, so pull one side, replace with the longer bolt--going up tight as before, then go to the other side and repeat.

    Then just take it down slowly till you have access.

    May I ask, what took 12 hours? seems fairly straight forward.

    Hey Logan. For future reference (just in case) did you have to disconnect anything?

    Put the rods in one at a time. Once the 6 rods are in, start backing off the nuts. The cradle with engine and all will start to come down. Do about a inch each side at a time.

    When the repair is done. Simply snug the nuts back up. Up goes the cradle, engine and all.

    As for disconnects.

    You have to dump the coolant. Disconnect coolant hoses from engine.

    You have to recover the freon.

    Couple of brake line secure mounts have to been removed. You do not have to open brake system.

    Intermediate shaft at steering rack.

    MAF removed, PCM tossed on top of the engine.

    Unbolt ABS unit from cradle.

    Hang the calipers on the upper struts. The 2 bolts for the nuckle/strut very easy to deal with.

    Service manual has you drill out rivits for the cat heat shield. This is so the exhaust can drop without O2 sensor hitting shield. Faster to cut a slot in shield, bend out of the way, then bend back when done.

    As for 12 hours....start to fluid finish. Also I was taking pictures as I went. Would be much faster 2nd time.

    Some little things like fuel lines etc.

    I attached a picture of the engine/trans/cradle being pretty close to full drop point.

    Sure beats paying the dealer a $1000.
