I have a 2000 saturn SL2 1.9L DOHC automatic trans, the transmission recently failed so I replaced the transmission, the transmission has approx. 34,000mi. After installing trans I got a code 741 TCC stuck in off position. I replaced TCC solenoid, still the same so pull the trans back out and replaced torque converter, still the same, I also set the transmisson range switch again to double check.

It has 158,000 miles on it.


You need to replace the valve body. One off of Ebay will do the trick. $150 part at the most on ebay and it is not that hard to do, if you can do an oil change you can most likely change the valve body. If this doesn't solve the problem, then youl ... 1999 Saturn SL
