They put that in there to let you know if the pan was ever removed to service the filter unless the guy put it back in there thinking it needs to be in there. LOL Great pc to had if you are removing a trans to plug up the hole.

No, that's a dust plug which gets knocked out when the dipstick tube is installed at the factory.

Yes, and I'm about to do it again. I've only given it a couple of test drives. After changing the solenoids, I'm still getting a P0743 code. It shifts smoothly with no shudder (as before). I'm wondering if I should have replaced the internal wiring harness, or if some of the harness problems I've been reading are related to a external harness.

Thanks again. I've read these and did replace all of the solenoids on the first round.

I plan on pulling the pan, adding a drain plug and replacing this (internal) wire harness. Along with a new filter. I did notice this harness has some circuitry in it (diode exposed). Can anyone advise if I should be looking for anything additional for this error code?

Thanks!

Thumbs up

A few years ago my CEL came on. I went to AZ to have the codes pulled and they said it was a trans code that only the dealer could pull.
I took it to my local Ford dealer where my Ford tech buddy worked. He informed me that (2) internal solenoids and the internal wire harness had to be replaced.
Being it was still under warranty I did not have to pay for it.
