Toyota Venza: Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Performance (Shift Solenoid Valve SL) (P0741)

Toyota Venza Service Manual / U660e Automatic Transmission / Transaxle / Automatic Transaxle System / Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid Performance (Shift Solenoid Valve SL) (P0741)

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The TCM uses signals from the throttle position sensor, air-flow meter, turbine (input) speed sensor, intermediate (counter gear) speed sensor and crankshaft position sensor to help determine the engagement timing of the lock-up clutch. The TCM monitors the engagement of the clutch using the turbine (input) speed sensor, intermediate (counter gear) speed sensor and crankshaft position sensor.

Then the TCM compares the engagement condition of the lock-up clutch with the lock-up schedule in the TCM memory to detect shift solenoid valve SL, valve body and torque converter mechanical problems.

DTC No.

DTC Detection Condition

Trouble Area

P0741

When both of the following are detected (2-trip detection logic):

  • Lock-up does not occur when requested.
  • Transmission fluid pressure switch No. 3 is ON.
  • Shift solenoid valve SL remains closed
  • Valve body is blocked
  • Torque converter assembly
  • Automatic transaxle (clutch, brake or gear etc.)
  • Line pressure is too low

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

Torque converter lock-up is controlled by the TCM based on the speed sensor (NT), speed sensor (NC), engine rpm, engine load, engine temperature, vehicle speed, transmission fluid temperature, and gear selection. The TCM determines the lock-up status of the torque converter by comparing the engine rpm (NE) to the input turbine rpm (NT). The TCM calculates the actual transmission gear by comparing the input turbine rpm (NT) to the counter gear rpm (NC). When conditions are appropriate, the TCM requests "lock-up" by applying control voltage to shift solenoid SL. When SL is turned on, it applies pressure to the lock-up relay valve and locks the torque converter.

If the TCM detects no lock-up after lock-up has been requested or if it detects lock-up when it is not requested, the TCM interprets this as a fault in shift solenoid valve SL or lock-up system performance. The TCM will turn on the MIL and store the DTC.

HINT:

Example:

When any of the following is met, the system judges it as a malfunction.

  • There is a difference in rotation (speed) between the input side (engine speed) and output side (input turbine speed) of the torque converter when the TCM commands lock-up.

    (Engine speed is at least 70 rpm greater than the input turbine speed.)

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

Perform the universal trip to clear permanent DTCs (See page ).


HINT:

Using the Techstream to perform Active Tests allows relays, VSVs, actuators and other items to be operated without removing any parts. This non-intrusive functional inspection can be very useful because intermittent operation may be discovered before parts or wiring is disturbed. Performing Active Tests early in troubleshooting is one way to save diagnostic time. Data List information can be displayed while performing Active Tests.

1. PERFORM ACTIVE TEST

(a) Warm up the engine.

(b) Turn the ignition switch off.

(c) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(d) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(e) Turn the Techstream on.

(f) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Active Test.

(g) According to the display on the Techstream, perform the Active Test.

Diagnostic Note

Activate the Lock Up

[Test Details]

Controls the shift solenoid SLU and SL to set the automatic transaxle to the lock-up condition.

[Vehicle Condition]

  • Vehicle speed: 60 km/h (37 mph) or more

[Lock-up]

0: OFF

1: ON

Possible to check SLU and SL solenoid operation.

HINT:

  • This test can be conducted when the vehicle speed is 60 km/h (37 mph) or more.

(h) Lightly depress the accelerator pedal and check that the engine speed does not change abruptly.

HINT:

  • When changing the accelerator pedal opening angle while driving, if the engine speed does not change, lock-up is on.
  • Slowly release, but not fully, the accelerator pedal in order to decelerate. (Fully releasing the pedal will close the throttle valve and lock-up may be turned off.)

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P0741)

(a) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(c) Turn the Techstream on.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Trouble Codes.

(e) Read the DTCs using the Techstream.
