03 Explorer - Tranny code po741 - flashing OD OFF
« on: June 23, 2010, 11:31:04 AM »
 Can anyone help with this code? po741 - torque converter slipping.  Had the code read on vacation at ford dealer. My dealer said to drive it home, it'll be fine. Vacation dealer said to service it and 98% of time it will cure it.  My service rep, said, don't do it, it won't help.  The computer print out from the code read  -  service transmission.  Anyone had this problem?
 Came home fine - shifted normal, just wouldn't go into OD. MPG was barely different 700 mile drive.
 Thanks in advance1

From what I'm reading, it won't help. Not many Ford guys around here though. It might be worth checking with a Ford specific forumn. I've heard of blueoval or something like that... Sorry,
