Ron :

Hello

Ron :

The code P0401 is in 99% of all cases set due to a bad DPFE (sensor) and in most cases replacing it will resolve this code. The code P1744 is in most cases set due to a Torque Converter clutch Solenoid issue and Ford has a TSB that deals with this code. Give me a minute and I will send it.

Ron :

Here is the TSB for the trans cose .

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
