P1744 is a torque convert clutch circuit failure code which appears after the PCM tries to lock up the torque converter and fails on 10 consecutive attempts. You will probably need to replace the "valve body" on the transmission or have a solenoid replaced for your overdrive in your transmission to function properly and for the code to stop being set. I would ONLY recommend taking the vehicle to a transmission shop if you have driveability problems that continue to make the transmission not work normally and you can tell it's not shifting right.

Service engine soon light came on my 1999 mercury sable

It means that the computer has detected a fault. You have a couple of options. You can buy an inexpensive code reader for about $50 and pull the codes yourself. You can call your local parts store to see if they can do this for you. You can bring your vehicle to a local shop and have them run a diagnosis. There is usually a charge for this. Let me know what codes you have and I'll be happy to help you further.

!999 Mercury Sable, 3.0L OHV - I just put Autolite app104 double platinum spark plugs in, Autolite #96837 ignition wire set on, and an air filter. All was fine for 20 miles and then my "Service Engine...

Computer has detected a fault--may or may not relate to the work you did. Please get a diagnostic scan of your OBD II connection and report trouble codes back to us. If you are in US, Autozone and Advance, among others, have free scanning service. We need the codes to diagnose.

The Warning Light "Service engine soon" came on. We have a 2001 Mercury Sable. How many miles can the car be driven before dealer inspection?

This light means that the computer in the car has sensed a problem with something on the car. You should take the car to a local auto parts store and have them read the codes from the service engine light. Post the codes they give you here and we can help more. Most likely you wont hurt the car by driving it with that light on. Better to ba safe then sorry thought.
