On some vehicles built prior to 9/4/2001 equipped with the 2.0L Zetec engine and F4E-F Automatic Transmission, diagnosis may be difficult with the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated and Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1744 stored in continuous memory with no driveability concerns present. This may be caused by the calibration of the Powertrain Control Module (PCM).
Follow normal diagnostic procedures and verify the condition. If the "no driveability condition" is valid, reprogram the PCM to latest calibration level. Refer to the PCM Calibration Information Chart.
Obtain an Authorized Modifications Decal (FPS 8262 - obtainable through DOES II, 25/pkg) and list the date, dealer number, and summary of modifications performed. Select a prominent place adjacent to the Vehicle Emission Control Information Decal suitable for installing the Authorized Modifications Decal. Clean the area, install the decal, and cover it with a clear plastic decal shield.
