SOURCE: 1998 dodge avenger tranmission control solenoid

Below the link for Chrysler/Dodge auto-transmission manual
http://www.scribd.com/doc/7095618/545rfe-Transmission-Manual

Solenoid mounts outside the transmission, so you do not need to remove the transmission to install. It should be located between fuse box and air filter housing on the top of transaxle case and right next to transmission controle module.
I hope his step by step procedure will work for you. It is not hard at all to replace the solenoid. There are three 10mm bolts. You will also need to remove the input speed sensor. One thing to look out for is not bending the gasket when installing the new solenoid:

  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Remove air cleaner assembly.
  3. Remove electrical connectors for transmission control module (please refer the manual I send you and autozone.com website).
  4. Remove the Transmission Control Module
  5. Disconnect and remove the input speed sensor
  6. Disconnect the transmission oil cooler lines. Cap off hoses and fittings to prevent foreign matter intrusion.
  7. Disconnect the solenoid/pressure switch assembly connector.
  8. Remove the three solenoid/pressure switch assembly-to-transaxle case bolts
  9. Remove solenoid/pressure switch assembly and gasket

Keep everything clean to prevent foreign materials to go inside
  1. Install solenoid/pressure switch assembly to case using a new gasket
  2. Install bolts and torque to 13 N·m (110 in. lbs.)
  3. Install 8-way connector and torque screw to 4 N·m (35 in. lbs.)
  4. Uncap and install transmission oil cooler lines.
  5. Install input speed sensor and torque to 27 N·m (20 ft. lbs.)
  6. Install Transmission Control Module
  7. Install air cleaner assembly.
  8. Connect battery negative cable.

P.s. 1. You can fine some clips on YouTube.com at least for similar cars
2. Also at Autozone.com you can find the component location for your car and repair guide
3. Also there is a link for Mitchel1 online manual useb by US mechanic 1 week subscribtion is

SOURCE: Electronic Throttle Control light

I had this problem with my 2004 Ram with 5.7 Hemi. The check engine light would come on, it had a hesitation at a certain rpm range and would shut off on me from time to time. Took it to my mechanic and he said the electric throttle sensor wasn't reading correctly and my EGR valve was out. He fixed both problems, but then had to send the truck to the Dodge dealer to get the computer reflashed and the dealer is the only one that can do it. Cost about $500, but after that, no more problems. Better performance and fuel mileage.

The throttle position sensor needs to be replaced. That will cure your problems.

SOURCE: The Electronic Throttle Control light

This problem can sometimes occur due to dirt entering the throttle assembly. It can bring codes on relating to forced engine shutdown, which sounds dramatic at best. Normally a good cleaning of the throttle valve assembly cures this fault. It happens because the system fails to see throttle response or closure within parameters. This should be your first action to take, rather than spending money needlessly... Hope this helped?

Electronic throttle control light


The car has to be diagnosed

There is a good chance that the
ETC light has nothing to do with
the actual reason it set a fault code

On a ford, you have bad ignition coils that
don't ground out in the computer & set etc

The dealers & shops throw all sorts of parts
at the unknown & have no idea what happened
or how to diagnose.

You need to have a shop or dealer use the codes
& other reference material properly, to find the issue

It is Electronic Throttle Control, it is driveable but could get worse. May need to go to dealer. Check the Avenger forum, maybe somebody knows more how to fix it
