First of all, I wouldn't worry about the P0740 Torque converter clutch. Mine hasn't worked in 3 years and the only difference it makes is about 200 rpm at 70 mph. I've already replaced the solenoid so if it's the clutch itself, I'm NOT pulling the converter out just for that.

You may have some bad injectors. Those old Siemens are junk to begin with and 2 of mine cracked at about 190K miles. I replaced mine with 4-hole Bosch for about $140 for reconditioned ones.
