2001 4.7 l gc tc problem

Hi every body i am new member.i have a 2001 grand cherokee 4.7l and the check engine light comes on when driving on highway and comes off when i drive a few days in town only. The scanner indicated a code p740 that suggests torque converter,but they can not explain why it comes on and off.in both situations the car drives great and the shifting is good.if anybody has any ideas please let me know thanks.

Re: 2001 4.7 l gc tc problem

Actually, you should check the WJ section, NOT the ZJ section since you posted that you have a 2001 Grand Cherokee. It sounds like you may have a bad sensor, but stop by the WJ section.
