2007 ford explorer 4.0. Codes po743 po750 po750 po750 po765 po966 po966 po970. Check engine light and wrench light on. Feels like it is stuck in 3rd gear.

Chances are the transmission being in 3rd gear is a safety feature to help keep you from being stranded on the road.
All of the codes are transmission faults which means you will need to get it to a shop for diagnosis.
The codes are for shift solenoids and torque converter issues.

- Pressure control solenoid valve 'C' harness is open or shorted
- Pressure control solenoid valve 'C' circuit poor electrcial connection

The Engine Control Module (ECM) uses signals from the vehicle speed sensor to detect the actual gear position (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th gear). Then the ECM compares the actual gear with the shift schedule in the ECM memory to detect mechanical troubles of the shift solenoid valves and valve body.

I have Honda Accord 2001and I put the scanner this Code come out p1768 what this means

Possible causes
- Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve harness is open or shorted
- Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Clutch Pressure Control Solenoid Valve

Has to do with the solenoid or wiring to the solenoid inside the transmission. You should have the problem addressed at a transmission shop.

P2723 pressure control solenoid

The code relates to a transmission pressure control solenoid that is stuck in the off position. The transmission is then limited to reverse and 3rd gear. You may notice some hesitation or sluggishness.

Good Luck.

I have a 2002 honda accord, V6 with 42,000 miles,,,yes,,,42,000 miles The check engine light went on, the dealer checked the code "p0780" Replace transmission. Can this be right?

The code you have P0780 is an internal hydraulic problem in the transmission. I did some research on this trouble code and the repair manual Say's to replace the torque converter clutch solenoid valve/shift solenoid valve A, and the A/T clutch pressure control solenoid valves A and B.

In plain English these are the shift solenoids and torque converter solenoids. These solenoids control the fluid flow to the transmission and if they are not working properly then p0780 will set.

The bad news is the repair manual Say's to replace these solenoids and if the problem is still present then replace or overhaul the transmission because the problem is internal.

Most repair shops are not going to take the risk and just replace the solenoids, they will replace or overhaul the transmission.

2006 ford mustang we did a code check and it came up with "PO745" Pressure control solenoid malfuntion, the car is slipping from 2gear into 3rd gear. Will I be able to fix this myself or do I...

Try a can of Tranx first. My dodge was doing the same thing 2 years ago. It took a couple of days as I only drove about 30 miles a day. But my transmission hasn't slipped since. And you can fix it yourself. You would have to get a solenoid package for the transmission, several hundred dollars. they don't sell just pressure control solenoid.

Transaxle code came up on engine code

P1739 transaxle code, It's a "Problem in 3rd Clutch Pressure Switch Circuit" or sometimes know as Pressure Control Solenoid "C. 
That code is for a 3rd clutch failure. It's an internal problem and there isn't a thing you can do to fix it without pulling the transmission. It's a vesy common code when the transmission starts to go.
Sorry for the bad news and good luck

Yes,that code is a transmission code,pressure control solenoid A.On a Honda trans,there are two solenoids that control line pressure inside the trans.The two of them are made together into one assembly that Honda calls "Linear Solenoids".Most likely they are defective and need replacing,but require testing.They are mounted on the outside of the trans case,so the problem can be repaired without removing the transmission from the car.The actual diagnostic route for that trouble code involves ohms checking the wires from the vehicle computer to the solenoids.Ohms checking the solenoids,amps chekcing the solenoids,and then installing a line pressure gauge on the transmission to test the solenoids mechanically.I rebuild Honda and Acura transmissions on a regular basis,and solenoid failure is not out of the ordinary.Good luck.
