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.

Any ideas.

Re: Check Engine light on with code P0741

I dropped off the GJC today. Yesterday the check engine light turned off and the rpms and fuel consumption back to normal. This has occurred several times already so I'm hoping it's not a computer issue and my car is going in for unnecessary surgery.
