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: engine lost power on a 2004 ford escape and then

Yes this could be the problem, because you are having backpressure, which is usually the cat, or worst case scenario, you may have a bent or stuck exhaust valve...But what you can do, is disonnect the cat., or the exhaust, and let it run...Now its going to be loud, but if you dont have that back pressure then you know its just the cat., but if you still have it, then you know it maybe a bent or stuck exhaust valve....

SOURCE: blew egr valve after loss of power. gained power

You may be on the right track, I've never heard of an EGR valve blowing apart and I've been doing this along time, but I suppose a plugged cat could cause it. Try blocking the pipe, if power goes down, you could be right. Do you, or did you have any codes prior to the valve blowing? A bad cat will usually set a p0420 code. How many miles on it?

Cd4e p1744


1. Inspect the fluid for smell and discoloration.

2. If the fluid shows indication of slippage, recommend transmission replacement or overhaul.

3. If the fluid looks to be in good condition, suggest replacement of the Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoid, and flush and refill of the fluid.

4. If the vehicle comes back after resetting the same code, the valve body likely has an internal issue or there is a problem with the torque converter.

2002 ford escape v6 with trans code p1744 and 741


Unfortunately, the possible issues are numerous. The problem is most likely either your torque converter, or electrical issues with your transmission. Without knowing how the vehicle is acting, if it's drivable, when it trips the codes, etc, it makes it more difficult to accurately diagnose.

Here is what ford says about those codes...

SERVICE PROCEDURE
The torque converter clutch may not engage if one or more of the following conditions exist:
- Stuck converter regulator valve
- Stuck solenoid regulator valve
- Stuck bypass clutch control valve
- Stuck pressure failsafe valve
- Pump bore ring groove depth incorrect
- Worn pump shaft or damaged pump shaft seals
- Pump shaft internal sleeve loose (rattles)
- Turbine shaft seals damaged or missing
- Incorrect Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) solenoid
- TCC solenoid mechanically stuck or electrically inoperable
- Damaged internal wiring harness
- Incorrect gear ratio (wrong sprockets)
- Damaged or worn stator support
- Worn torque converter hub bushing
- Torque converter clutch worn or damaged
Use a scan tool to monitor the following PID's:
- TCC = Commanded duty cycle for TCC solenoid
- TCCMACT = Actual slip across the TCC, measured in RPM
- RPM = Actual engine speed
- TSS_SRC = Actual turbine shaft speed
- TCCRAT = Speed/Gear ratio of torque converter/transaxle

Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 ford explorer and the o/d light keeps coming on. I took it to advanced auto and put it on the machine and code p1744 came up what in detail does that mean


This has to do with the Torque converter. It can be a bad connection, a bad electric solenoid inside the trans, or a bad torque converter. Sometimes a pressure check is necessary to determine the exact problem.

There are a few solenoids which can be changed during a trans fluid and filter change. Sometimes it is just a bad external wiring connector.

A little money spent for pressure testing may save an unnecessary trans replacement.

2002 Ford Escape XLT OD light blinking - am told it may be a torque converter cellunoid - only has 80K on it & I bought it new! Any ideas? How expensive is the fix? Would it help to change the...


The Trans fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years.
Changing any fluid on a vehicle is never a fix for anything,just preventative maintenance.
You should have done the Power Steering Fluid, Trans Fluid,Brake Fluid,Etc a couple of times,before getting to 80K.

Also I would hope you changed the spark plugs buy at least 60K.

You may have a TCC Solenoid going bad,but the engages the torque converter clutch.

Is it shifting into OD? Most likely you have a solenoid issue,but need to find out which one. Most fords have a solenoid pack in the trans,with all of them in one unit. Not sure on yours.

The only way it will be expensive, is if you go to a dealer or get pitched some story by a shop, not able to diagnose, what is most likely a simple fix.
