I have a 1996 Geo Tracker. We tow it behind our camper. I got this fault code of P0740 which has to do with the trans not locking up properly. This is a Japanese car and nearly bulletproof but the American models were sold with a chevy 3 speed trans which is the weak point when I use it to climb mountains on rocky paths or to drive on deep soft sand. This code just turned up. There are no other symptoms. Months ago the trans did heat up a little and shift hard going up Pikes Peak but was fine after cooling down.
The question is can I ignore this if there are no symptoms? Cab I reset and see what happens? This car is not worth what a rebuild in the trans would cost but it is important to our way of life and we aren’t well off.
