I believe what you mean is a P1860 code? There is no P1806. The code is for a torque converter clutch pulse width solenoid, which is an internal electrical part of the transmission, it is a pretty labor intensive job, and you could actually end up needing a full transmission. that and the oil pan gasket could lead to a heafty bill, if its worth it to fix is up to your and your financial situation really, ask yourself if you can buy a different car with the money that you are quoted for the work.

1994 oldmobile transmission pan replacement


Just get a used trans pan

You can put that one yourself,pretty easy job

I would suggest you go to a trans repair shop
& tell them what car you have.

If they don't have a used one, they will get it the next
morning early, with their daily parts ,from the wholesaler

They also have the good pan gaskets,you do not want the
rubber & cork from the auto parts store
You want the brown cardboard looking gasket, with the waxy
coating.

The used pan & gasket goes for about $10.00 total

Have 1992 El Dorado, a/c or heater motor will not run, dash display shows working, replaced resistor, still does not work.Any suggestions?


had same thing happen on my 92 el dorado. problem is at the blower control power relay the 2 plug connectors or the connector for the blower fan. theree is a flow chart to test the voltages going to these connector in the factory shop manual, for a 92 el dorado on page 1C-17 if I remember correctly. if voltages check ok then make sure plugs are securely plugged in. if still does not work, then it's the blower control power relay. good luck!

Check engine light is on the computer is saying code 741 & 1860 what is this telling me. I had justy replaced the pan gasket and the filter and oil.


P0741 , P01860 are both transmission codes..TCC solenoid (torque converter clutch ) shorted., this is common and is an extensive job to repair. Was the gasket and pan replaced on the motor or transmission ?

Car will not downshift upon acceleration..."kickdown"


Most affordable possible solution is to give it a transmission tune-up. Transmission number one problem is neglect. Change the oil, filter and pan gasket. You'll probably need to take the pan off, very messy job. Take the pan off, carefully scrape all old gasket material, clean the pan with dish washing soap, dry it completely, put a bottle of Lucas for transmission in the pan. Put some Indian Head Gasket Shellac Compound on the pan gasket surface. Set the gasket on the pan, keep the gasket on the pan for three minutes then install. Don't put any Shellac on the transmission gasket surface nor on the gasket. Follow recommended directions for filling the transmission with oil.

Oil loss and code 1806


Well, the good news is... the gasket lists for $17 bux. The bad news is.... it calls for 10.2 hours to change it, which includes r&r the transmission. I see no code description for 1806.
