Sounds like you have a bad spark plug wire. Start the vehicle, then take a squirt bottle of water and spray around the plug wires. You should find it. It'll look like static around the bad one. Also you should get the misfire. You'll probably find a worn area on the wire. Best wishes to you.

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.

probably both. first check all the pulleys and tensioner. one of them is the cause for the belt to come off. Make sure they are all tight and no wabble.

You don't have to pull it to replace the TCC. Remove the pan and you can access the TCC solenoid. 40b12bb6-08f8-4f1c-b959-9bfe6f7b08fb.gif

Where is the TCC solenoid located

It's in the transmission. Remove the trans pan and it is on the solenoid package. But the solenoid may not be the problem. Could be the wiring, plugs(inside and outside the trans), torque converter, or the computer. 7b32d407-41bb-449c-8dd9-0a5f7effbf7f.gif

Where is the tcc solenoid is located?

The tcc solenoid is located in the transmission.The trans side cover has to come out for the solenoid to be replaced.The 4 way connector that comes out the front of the trans is part of the solenoid wiring.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Repair info on OSD Fault Code: PO743

The code is for a TCC (Torque Convertor Clutch) solenoid problem.

Chances are pretty good the problem is the wiring where it goes into the transmission or the TCC solenoid itself which is in the valve body

There was a bulliten released from Ford about three years ago about this code being set after trans overhauls. In Ford's program stratagies, the P07xx codes are for computer detected failures due to mechanical responses. The P17xx code series are computer identified electrical failures. This code you are getting gets set when the computer does not see the what it would expect from Torque Converter lock-up. The most common problem for this (and is even stated in the bulliten I mentioned) has to do with a seal on the input shaft of the trans. The seal either gets damaged when the torque converter is installed or it is accidentally left out during the rebuild. There is not much that you personally can do, but at least you can understand how to best procede.

you will most likely end up removing that cover to inspect the harness that goes to all the solenoids and then to inspect the valve body and the TCC solenoid itself. If you have a multimeter then you could ohm through the harness and even the solenoid. I have found that most of the time this code was produced because of the solenoid itself. But it could be the circuits to it also. There is a big connector an top of the trans that goes into the trans and the internal harness inspect that connector for any corrosion or damaged pins or wires.

TCC solenoid circuit failure during on-board diagnostic.

TCC solenoid circuit fails to provide voltage drop across solenoid. Circuit open or shorted or PCM drive failure during on-board diagnostic.

Failed ON - engine runs rough/vehicle shudder, engine stalls in DRIVE (2nd, 3rd or 4th) at low idle speeds. (Short circuit).
Failed OFF - torque converter clutch never engages (Open circuit) (MIL on).

Engine codes P0740 and P0743 came up and trans fault displayed with check engine light and o/d light flashing

These codes are for your torque converter clutch solenoid. most likely the tcc solenoid needs to be replaced.

I have a code 741 on my 01 saturn S- series any suggestion on how to fix.

check the tcc fuse under the hood mfuse block if thats good,,,its most likely the tcc solenoid inside the ntop of the trans,the dealer has a test they can do to see ifits working,if its not the tcc solenoid which im sure it is,its either a wire issue or a pcm,i would go for the tcc solenoid

Wondering what the TCC fault code is

Here are the DTC's for the TCC Solenoid:

DTC P0740 TCC Enable Solenoid Circuit Electrical
DTC P0741 TCC System Stuck Off
DTC P0742 TCC System Stuck On
DTC P0743 TCC Enable Solenoid Circuit Electrical
DTC P0744 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Intermittent

Fault codes

DTC P1860 is set if PCM detects a continuous open or short to ground in the TCC PWM solenoid circuit.

If your inclinded to attempt to fix this yourself, I have some trouble shooting proceedures that you can use. They are very involved, and could require the trans oil pan to be removed to get access to the solenoid.

If your not up to that, take it in to get it fixed.

TCC PMW solenoid is used to control fluid flow acting on the converter clutch valve.
The Solenoid controls TCC apply and release.
The Solenoid is attached to the transmission valve body. To get to it you have to remove the tranmission oil pan. Changing it should be no problem.
But do you need to replace it? To determine that you have to figure out if it is the wiring that goes to the solenoid or if the solenoid itself is shot.

The PCM uses the TCC/PWM solenoid to control when the torque converter clutch applies and how soft or harsh the TCC apply feels to the customer. The TCC/PWM also controls the release feel of the torque converter clutch. "

Ignition voltage is supplied directly to the solenoid through a fused circuit. The Powertrain control module commands solenoid on or off by applying or removing the ground.

P0753 Shift Solenoid A Electrical P0758 Shift Solenoid B Electrical
Good luck and hope this helps
