Ken,

Was this for the PO741 Engine Light code or some other code? Wanted to find out if flushing and replacing the ATF is the right (and most economical option).

Thanks.

cthibby,

That is basically what I did. It let me get the car inspected but soon after the light came back on. However, my TC is shot and my car is jerky off the line and at lower speeds. But I am just waiting for the extended warranty to kick in and then replace it.

Thanks Ken. How long have you driven the car with the TC shot? I'm hoping for at least a couple of months since it hasn't started to slip yet (knock on wood)... Appreciate the insight.

Ive been driving mine on a bad TC for almost 2 years now. Still going strong. I do have a slight slip between 2nd and 3rd gear on a cold run but other than that it runs fine. I cleared the code the first time it came on the dash and actually has not come back on since.

cthibby, I have been driving with the TC shot since I got the car. I believe that the dealership that sold the car to the dealership that I purchased it from just cleared the code. So there is no telling how long it has been shot but it likes to slip (for at least 1 second) at least once a day moving into or out of 1st.

Okay, so I just noticed that I have a bubble in my drivers front tire. I know with AWD all the tires should be replaced, unless the other tires are close to new then I will replace just the damaged tire. How hard is it to update the speedo/odometer if I replace with bigger tires, say 225/50R17 instead of the stock 225/45R17?
