Hi there. My mechanic is stumped. I took the van in over a month ago. The check engine light was on and the transmission was not shifting into 3rd gear. it is a 97 dodge 2500 van with a 3.9 engine and the 3-speed transmission (155K miles on it).
$1500 later, they rebuilt the transmission and replaced the torque converter. The check engine light keeps coming on and throwing the P0740 code. It seems like the torque converter locks up but the RPM drop is only about 180-200 RPM when this occurs. I think it should be more and more noticeable.
The mechanic has since replaced the valve body, TCC solenoid and wire connectors to the transmission since the rebuild but the problem still exists.
Anything that you can offer to help remedy this would be so greatly appreciated.
All other lights work, including turn signals, emergency lights etc.
