    Do you have any problem with your transmission?
    There is a recall if i remember right for this problem .It is a ECU internal problem.

    Have you found a solution to this. I had the ECM recall repaired a few weeks ago and now the check engine light came on again and they're telling me it's P0741 and I need a new transmission. This sounds a little to coincidental.

    i went into another mechanic and he ran another diagnostics and the code did not come on again. So he told me not to worry at this point. if it comes back on, then bring it back. i have no problems with performance of car.

    Hello there, I have the same error code P0741 on my toyota corolla 2007. the dealership told me the same thing. I need to replace a new transmission. it is pricey. Can I rebuilt the transmission? to do that way, may be little cheaper than to replace a new transmission. Don't you think? Please Help. I am getting headache on my car. thank you

    If you know someone with a scantool make sure the computer is applying the converter clutch first.I had one where the front stator bushing on the front pump was worn out so bad you could shake the input shaft from side to side. This allows pressure to blow by and cause the converter clutch to slip then the computer will set the code.To correct you have to pull the trans replace the torque converter and remove the front pump.The front stator bushing must be cut out with a bushing cutter or removal tool and pressed back in.The one i had it fixed the problem.
