All of my research is telling me that just changing the TCC when you only have the one code, that being P0741, will not fix the problem. If the car didn't have 215000km on it, I might risk it and try it anyway, but it just seems like too much of a risk to do all that work, and then have to drop the subframe anyway...

Now comes the decision on whether to pay a professional $3k+ to do the work, or find another vehicle and start parting it out... :sad:

Got a quote today, to replace the transmission with a rebuilt from the dealer. 3 years or 160000km warranty, for $3500 Canadian installed, parts and labour. Very tempting but still a lot of money to put into a 14 year old car... Having said that, here is a list of things that I have already done to the car in the last 24 months.

Stud kit with new head gaskets
New water pump and thermostat
All new brakes
New rear shocks
New winter tires with rims
New front wheel bearings
Repaired heated seats
New aftermarket headlights
New HID fog lights
New stepper motors in the gauges
Repaired sunroof drains
New outer tie rods
Recent alignment
New radiator
New power steering hoses
All new stereo speakers

My heart doesn't want to give up my Bonneville, but common sense tells me to stop spending money on it...
