odb code p 0753 shift A solenoid

Postby since_1971 [OP] » February 7th 2010, 1:24am

it seems that I cannot pass emissions inspection with out changing the p 0753 shift A solenoid.
is this a diy job, or gonna cost $$$$$$. I also have a p 0751 stuck open reading.
<br>
could it mean the whole tranny is due for the scrapper?

It's not that hard.
Drop the pan, swap the solenoid, install the pan and top up fluid.
Total cost-$100.
Being covered in old trans fluid head to toe-priceless!

Perfecting the fine art of more cost, less performance, since 1987!

This weekend I changed the solenoid, filter, added synth blend fluid, and added a drain.
Cost about $100. the local shops wanted $250-$300.
pretty straitforward job, I would of taken pics but it has been raining here for days.
Thank you all for your help.

Did the mpg for .5 tank, still getting 14 mpg combined.
Plugs, wires, fuel filter should be next.
