Default P1740 code

i have a 01 ram 1500 that has the overdrive solenoid code going off the mechanic that worked on it was suprised that i still have a working transmission, and overdrive works fine still get the great 10-13 mpg, anyways he said that it would cost above 2000 to drop the tranny and to find out what is actually going on, this code has been on for a long time like before i had it maybe three years more or less so whats your opinion on what to do

Exclamation Also P1740 code

I'm new to he forum. But I got the Same code for my 01 ram 1500 5.9. It was terrible on mpg. It had the shudders. Shaky coming of leaving a red light. And going up hills or even beginning to take of was very slow. Felt like the truck weighed double what it actually weighed. So I took it back to the dealer and I'm waiting. Has anyone else experiences this or no anything about this issue?
