Check Engine light on with code P0741
I've been putting some good highway miles on my 2013 WK2 at 36K miles currently. Check engine light came on 2 weeks ago the only thing I notice were my Rpms were running slightly higher and my ECO light is off. Gas mileage seem super poor also.
I plug it up to my OPD Checker and received a code of P0741 Torque Convertor.
So I take it to the dealership and they plug it up to their computers. Service Person stated my car needs a new Torque Convertor and a new input shaft. I'm like holy!!! that's a huge job. You have to take the tranny apart for that! They said I can still drive it until parts come in and would need to leave it for a few days to make the repairs once the parts are here.
I said ok. I've been driving the car for about a week and the engine light goes off and the car seem to be back to normal. Lasted about a day then the light came back on and the engine again runs rpms a little higher and takes longer to shift gears.
I'm dreading the tranny surgery once it's taken apart it'll never be the same. Everything is still covered under warranty.
