SOURCE: p1744 enginge code tcc solenoid circuit

DTC P1744 is "TCC - Excessive Slip Detected During Full TCC Engagement". Which means that the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) is disengaged or the EPC pressure is at the minimum.

The most likely cause is a sticking or bad TCC solenoid inside the transmission. You can check the connector at the transmission to make sure it is clean and tight and that it is not damaged in any way.

If the TCC and wiring is okay, then pressure testing of the transmission will need to be done.

A new torque converter from Ford is about $265.00 and about 4 hours labor. Throw in a $40.00 TCC solenoid and I don't think it'll be more than $700.00 at worst.

If the pressure test is good then it's just going to be the $40.00 tcc solenoid and the cost of the transmission oil and filter changed which should be around $150.00

Good luck and hope it's just a loose wire harness to the solenoid which would cost $0.00 and just your time to locate the break in the wire. The other thing to, is to add a transmission fluid additive that would restore the clutch pack in the transmission and Torque Converter.

SOURCE: to change the tcc solenoid can it be done by

The transmission will not have to be removed for this, however, the valve-body assembly will need removal. This can be accessed by taking off the pan on the transmission.

Why is my 1998 Ford Windstar 98 reading DTC P0743?


#1) Low or dirty transmission fluid #2) Wire/circuit issue shorted to power or ground #3) Failed torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid #4) Failed TCC assembly in the torque converter.....

Since Transmission has been rebuilt I would strongly suspect the TCC solenoid and/or its wiring...When transmission was rebuilt did the TCC get replaced? If so, due to being intermittent, Check the TCC plug (both female and male) for bent or dirty contacts...also insure you have close to zero ohms of resistance from negative battery post to transmission case...A poor ground will cause a problem and be at times...saailer

Trouble restarting / 1997 ford contour first


If I'm understanding the symptom correctly its probably the torque converter clutch solenoid.(TCC) If your handy get the repair manual and check out the section for torque converter clutch solenoid.(TCC)
This solenoid locks the engine to the transmission.
Its disconnected by the brake light switch.
It will only engage if your vehicle is at opertaing temperatures,cooling fan has cycled twice and traveled above approx 40 mph's.
If the brake light switch is defective it woun't tell the TCC to let go and your car will stall out but will restart again and you will be able to drive. But if its the TCC it self you will be able to start but you will stall out the minute you put it in gear. She will not disengage the converter unless engine is NOT at operating temperatures.(ENG COOLED DOWN)
You can buy repair manual and check it out yourself.
If you test drive it remember the only thing you can control is the speed of the vehicle. Keep it under 40mph's . The TCC needs all three criterias before it engages.
If this is your problem the TCC cost about $75 bucks.
Its located at the rear of the transaxle four or five bolts to remove the transaxle plate a little fluid will fall out . (nothing to scare over) Take a picture of how the TCC is routed with your cell phone unplug it and take it out. Route the new one as per your pic, plug it in, put a new gasket on the plate and bolt it back.
Check fluid level and test drive . Then recheck fluid level. good luck
If you give to a shop it will cost anywhere from $150 to $250.

2002 Sunfire TCC Solenoid replacement


hi..the transaxle converter clutch . tcc. uses a solenoid -operated valve located in the automatic transaxle to mechanically couple the engine flywheel to the output shaft of the transmission through the torque converter.that reduces the slippage loss in the converter.reducing emissions.but check the vss first.which is called the vehicle speed sensor.they both work together .if the vss is not working right it wont call on the tcc.
check this out..
thank u..
