2011 Outlander SE Fault Code
I just purchased a 2011 Outlander Sport SE with 91,000 miles for a family member. I took it for a test dive and it drove great. Once I went back to the local dealer and signed all the paper work while I was driving it home the Service Transmission light on the dash came on. Once the car was turned off and back on the light was gone. I was planning on taking it to a Mitsubishi dealer in town and having an oil change done the next day, so I asked them to do a diagnostic check on it. The tech called me back and said he had bad news. He pulled a (P1740) and (P1749), (B1477) and (B1476) codes. He said the code was an internal transmission fail. He said he drove the car around the building and the service transmission light came back on. He told me that the transmission needed to be replaced!! He told me that it was not worth tearing apart the transmission and that a rebuilt one was still going to cost thousands and may not be worth it due to the overall value of the car.
I drove it back to the small local dealer where I purchased the car and told them and gave them the paper the Mitsubishi tech gave me. They drove the car and said they could not find any codes and that I would need to continue to drive the car until the service light came back on and then bring the car back so they could see the code. the mechanic here said based on the code that it looked like some type of solenoid for the transmission or torque converter solenoid needed to be replaced and that it was simple.
so I have had this car for a total of 4 days and im scratching my head, it drives fine, no weird noises, no shuttering?!?!
is the P1740/P1749 fault code a simple transmission fluid/filter change and or simple solenoid fix
Or like the Mitsubishi dealer does the transmission need to be replaced?
I have searched the internet for the P1740/P1749 code and nothing I have read said the transmission needed to be replaced
any help would be great!
