To replace or service the transmission you will need to:
lift the vehicle support then engine using a hoist/lift support the transmission using a hoist/lift unbolt the motor mounts (There are 4 of them) lower the engine 8 - 10 inches unbolt the transmission lower the transmission

there are 4 selenoids in mercury or nissan which utilize same auto transmission. those selenoids work in combinations to direct AT oil into mazes to shift into different gears. if one of selenoids are lacking of voltage or wire is simply broken you can get this kind error. check connectors and wires of transmission first.
yes, it's the speed sensor. It is mounted in the transmission above the axle as seen in picture below. The part is $24 at autozone.com. Before buying the part, make sure the connector is properly attached to the sensor and the wiring is intact. If the wiring is good, the sensor is most likely the problem. let me know if you have any more questions.
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.
I would suggest trying a tranny service. Changing the fluid and filter may help this. You can also put some transmission conditioner or something in it and try that. Lucas makes a real good transmission cleaner/conditioner. Be careful not to overfill the tranny though by adding this product. If this doesn't fix it then the soleniod will probably need to be replaced which requires tearing into the tranny

Trust me, this is NOT fun :( the top transmission bolt is REALLY hard to get to.
