11-18-10, 05:08 PM
started when I was merging onto exway, check engine light came on, went into 3rd gear. When I would let off throtte it seemed to slip into neutral until getting back into therottle.
If i put it 3rd when starting out it would function normally 1-3,
got p029 code.
Dropped valve body and replaced shift solenoids, filter and added filter L bracket. Reassembled using correct torque.
filled with 6 qts.dexron VI. It is a bit low on dipstick. disconnected batt for 20 mins.
Now, it is doing the same thing as original problem but only goes into 2nd.

The valve body bolts only need 10-12 ft lbs torque (look up the spec). Overtightening can cause a problem.

I torqued them to 96 inch lbs.
