    Welp, the multiple trans drain/refill & new filter didn't help

    My 4-5 shift solenoid has been slowly dying for months, and it's finally pretty much given up.

    Has anyone replaced one? It doesn't appear at all difficult, if you can get over the freakiness of the valve body.

    While I'm in there, I'm going to do all three, though I think there is a fourth one. Probably the converter lockup solenoid. Yeah, I'll do that one, too, as I don't want to be in there, again.

    In the meantime, this car is mighty perky in 4th at freeway speed!!!

    how many miles on the car?

    and haven't you "dived into" that area of your car in the past?

    113K, I'm the third owner.

    I haven't gone this far into it. I've had the pan off, that's it. I've been there in others, though...it's not as bad as many think it is.

    Though, having checkballs fall out, the first time you've done it, is terrifying...for a minute or two.
