thanks for your help,today I installed the tranny shift solenoid kit,no problem installing it,everything is working great,just turned 144000 miles as I pulled in driveway from test drive,i did not have any tranny codes,so I took a shot in the dark,wooo hoo,wonder how many people got screwed by tranny shops,i called someone that has a tranny shop and asked him about the solenoids and he wanted 700.00 to do it ,but didn't want to said tranny was bad,my cost for kit was 37.00 shipped to me for free,now all I need to do is figure out my excessive oil usage,1 qt a week,normal driving and no leaks,also car smells like its running rich,tail pipes black and no codes
