New C5 RS6

Hey guys,
I nabbed a misano c5 rs6 this weekend with 63,000 miles! A couple things
I got a code warning for the Transmission PO741 on my way home.
Everything is operating as normal though. is there a DIY for changing and/or checking fluid?
How bout a DIY for the Acceleration sensors, as one of those is bad too.
Thanks!

grats mate, got one myself not too long ago.

Looks like one of the cheaper things to fix.

Changing fluid - if you're checking it you may as well change it. Does no harm, only good, and it's only a few bucks.
Drain it and get the repair kit from your local ZF disti:

Accel sensors I know nothing about.

Where is Traverse City in the states?

Not a cheap fix for this one. Looks like your TC isn't locking as it should. It's an engine and gearbox out job so your look a a couple of grand in labour.

My advice would be to just drive the car until the TC/Box fails completely and then get the job done.

Not necessarily maximo, could just be a solenoid.

It's the lock-up clutch, so it doesn't affect you when accelerating, only when cruising (TC phase 3) and even then, youre just losing a little power thru the TC, not damaging anything.

As Maximo says, keep driving it as-is if you can't fix it with the solenoid.

FWIW I watched this the other night - extremely instructive...to a geek like myself

I had that code, left it too long and needed a box. Fix it quick! Congrats on the purchase.

Update,
history on the car,
It was bought down south by a presumably wealthy couple in Florida who took it to the same dealer all the way up until 48,000 miles. It was the wifes kid mover,  

The gentleman i bought it from put on the rest of the miles (I bought it with 62,500) since 2010. I assume it did a lot of sitting in a hot and sticky barn. Ive been trying to get rid of spider colony stocked up in the passenger mirror. every time i think they're gone I wake up to the same spider web around my mirror. They dont wanna leave, so they must've been there a LONG time.

the paint and interior (Damn kids) look more like a 150,000 mile car, but under the hood looks brand new. I cant feel a damn thing wrong with car, I think it feels heavenly, but its not like i drove one before this one.

On the 600 mile drive home from purchasing it, it constantly smelled hotter then hell and the oil temp would bounce up pretty quick, about half way home i got the the CEL.

the transmission code shows up and goes away. right now is the longest ive gone without the code, spirited and non spirited driving. It used to come on when Id play with the paddles and then stay on for awhile even from ignition.

I mentioned that I have a warning from the Yaw/Acceleration sensors which also used to show up right around ignition.

NOW, i havent seen the CEL since wednesday and the Yaw sensor takes 10 minutes or so of driving, sometimes more.

Could all of this be from hardly being used since 2010?

I am getting the oil, fluids, and filters changed next weekend.

Im still trying to figure out how to get to the Yaw sensors, so i can swap those out too.

Ideas?

I forgot!
the gas mileage HAS gone up the more i use it
The suspension even feels more smooth? (the suspension might be a placebo thing) but im positive its easier to achieve better gas mileage. Does this support the Sitting for too long theory?

PS
almost a year ago i posted that I started a widebody b5 project. Im still working on this, just ran into some major road blocks. which is why i got the rs6

Traverse City is in Northern Michigan, not far from Canada. Beautiful place, and a destination for car clubs

Some of the issues could indeed be caused by the lay up. They don't like sitting about
