SOURCE: 2000 mercury cougar wont start

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.

On that model it is almost always the torque convertor.

i would need more info but it sounds like your trans shifter cable is out of adjustment ; you need to carefully with the brake on and the car idling; move your trans shifter cable to all positions to check for forward and reverse.
Make sure car is chalked or raised of the ground ,

1999 cougar has blown code p1744. will only shift automatically from first to second then only revs really high but wont shift


Your codes indicates a stuck torque converter locked in the open condition.

This is a mechanical problem and only a mechanic with the right tools and parts should try to fix it.

At least you have a chance to keep the cost down by doing it sooner rather than later right?
