1999 Madza 626 transmission code 1744I have a 1999 Madza 626 that I bought less then a year ago with a rebuilt engine, and have had to replace the timing belt on it and now this Code 1744. It is the Torque Convertor clutch slipping. I am having the same problem and 2 different places said they had to research it. I called someone out of the phone book that I had taken a previous car to and he knew right away what it was. He said you can't feel it but it has something to do with when you go over a large hill and alitude the check engine light will come on, you can't feel it slipping but something inside is not right. You have a bad transmission, bottom line. I wouldn't mess around with it and get it fixed right away. I had another car with a bad transmission and don't want to get stuck again. Here is a link to a site that will tell you the same thing . I am taking my car in today and he said it is a 1 1/2 day job. They charge 275 to take it apart and apply that to any parts it will need. I will keep you up dated on my transmission. I suggest you find a transmission specialist in your area that can tell you right off hand what it is and you'll know he knows his stuff, anyone who says they need to research it doesn't know their transmissions.

I have a 1999 Mazda 626 with the CD4E transmission that had the engine code 1744. The transmission in my car would slip after the fluid was warm. My car had 123000 miles on it and had the transmission rebuilt once before. There are brass bushings inside this transmission that were worn out on my car. I bought a newer CD4E transmission from Ebay (40,000 miles) and put a shift kit in in with a new torque cnverter and new gaskets. The shift kit comes with drill bits to increase the size of the lub ports to increase oil flow to bushings. The previous rebuild was $1200 but obviously they did not change all the parts that needed changed or used the wrong parts. These transmissions are expensive and can be hard to find. I got one from a Ford Escape but had to use the old bell housing because the Ford Escape has a different starter mount. I was told they could not be interchanged but for me it worked.
