it doesnt mean you got a good part. i have had parts fail sooner then that. 1744 is lock up failure. could be low voltage. check the grounds, trace the harness and make sure it isnt pinched. you know now i think of it.... vss can cause this issue. its cost like $20. might be worth a try

lol its a taurus.. look for other systems of a bad vss. if the vss isnt telling the trans to lock up the torque converter then thats the code you will get. think of it as an o2 code.. the sensor is good just telling you there is a problem somewhere. changing the 02 sensor wont fix the issue all the time. sometimes its a vac leak or bad injector.
