Hello, have a 2003 Dodge Intrepid SE - 2.7L with 42LE Transmission - just replaced the solenoid pack and OD-UD, LR accumulators-new filter gasket and fluid - now it's giving me OBDII codes P0700 (


It sounds like you have a handle on this but I will ask the dumb question, are you coating the orings with petrolium jelly or trans assembly jelly? As far as the codes go, you might have a bad ECM. That mmany codes all at once seems suspect.

I bought a used Ford explorer sport with 80K on it. Shortly after purchasing it. the overdrive light indication on the dash display will intermittently blink. I took it to my mechanic they checked the code...


Best quality is never the cheapest price. Replacing the solenoid pack is MUCH less that having the trans rebuilt. and usually they replace the solenoid pack as part of the rebuild. So find a trans shop that will trouble shoot the trans and come up with a plan of action. 80K is young for trans trouble, but you never know about past servicing, overloading or abuse.

I want to know how many sensors does a honda accord transmission have. my ploblem is that she shifts kinda hard my daughter had just got this car she took it to a mech they put it on a machine and told her...


their are several different solenoids in the trans, all located behind the drivers side cover, the most likely cause of a hard shift is a code p1811 caused by a faulty pressure control solenoid. this is a common problem and their are updated solenoids available to solve this problem

Trouble with the transmission solenoid 2000 dodge caravan. Automatic transmission. The check engine light code read Transmission shift solenoid. I need suggestions on how to fix this myself


USUALLY A SHIFT SOLENOID DTC IS REPAIRED BY REPLACING THE TRANS SOLENOID PACK ASSEMBLY..LOCATED ON OUTSIDE OF TRANSMISSION..YOU MUST BE CAREFUL WHEN CHANGING PACK..CLEAN ALL DIRT/DEBRIS FROM OUTSIDE OF PACK..YOU DON'T WANT ANY DIRT TO ENTER TRANSMISSION..SOLENOID IS A SMALL BOX LOCATED ON SIDE OF TRANS FACING FRONT OF VEHICLE..YOU MUST REMOVE TRANS COOLER LINE HOSES FROM FITTINGS ON TRANS..REMOVE INPUT SPEED SENSOR..UNPLUG PACK..8MM SCREW HOLDS IT..3 BOLTS HOLD PACK TO TRANS..YOU MUST CLEAN ALL GASKET RESIDUE THOROUGHLY BEFORE INSTALLING PACK..I'D RECOMMEND GETTING SOMEONE WHO HAS DONE THIS BEFORE IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE DOING THIS..I HOPE THIS HELPS

Green "S" leads to other issues


This sounds like a failed or failing transmission control computer. I have been struggling with a 91 accord with similar symptoms for weeks. The computer often fails by way of a capacitor leaking, and I suspect this may occur as a result of faulty or stuck shift solenoid valves. There is no electrical protection betweeen the solenoids and computer. Disconnect the solenoid wiring harnesses, and check for a click when applying battery voltage to each pin (4 total in 2 connectors). You can also check for resistance at each of these pins. They are chassis gorunded, so attach the - side of your meter to a bolt on the trans. housing. Resistance should be 12-24 ohms on each solenoid. The speedo cutting out also suggests a failing vehicle speed sensor. Sometimes the connector for this sensor can melt or short. It is on the back side top of the trans. housing, roughly below the water neck. It can be removed by taking out 2 10mm bolts on either side of it. Finally, the shifter interlock solenoid in the shifter column can cause trouble. If there is a light rattling sound when going into drive, this is probably the cause. Do not repair or replace the trans. computer until after you have determined all of these items are in good order, or it may burn again. Also, beware reman computers in the aftermarket. They are often very shoddy. I suggest finding a low mileage salvage unit from a 91 accord. This is a compatible but updated version of the unit used in the 90 model. Just make sure the model designation is compatible (ie. dx/lx is different from ex). Good luck. You are going to need it.

When the engine gets warm the transmission doesn't shift properly


have u had the trans serviced every 60,000 miles? this would be a fluid and filter change. Dirty trans fluid can cause these kinds of problems, it can also be caused by a sticky shift solenoid (transmission is electronically controlled), do u have a check engine light or ay trouble code's? go to Kragen or Autozone and ask then to run a trouble code test, it's free, record any codes and post them back here.

Transmission Not Going into Overdrive


First check and make sure the fluid is full. The most likely cause is a failed solenoid pack. Circuit codes normally mean something electrical not mechanical has failed. The solenoid pack is on the outside of trans pretty easy to replace.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION GEAR SYSTEM PROBLEM


Yes,that code is a transmission code,pressure control solenoid A.On a Honda trans,there are two solenoids that control line pressure inside the trans.The two of them are made together into one assembly that Honda calls "Linear Solenoids".Most likely they are defective and need replacing,but require testing.They are mounted on the outside of the trans case,so the problem can be repaired without removing the transmission from the car.The actual diagnostic route for that trouble code involves ohms checking the wires from the vehicle computer to the solenoids.Ohms checking the solenoids,amps chekcing the solenoids,and then installing a line pressure gauge on the transmission to test the solenoids mechanically.I rebuild Honda and Acura transmissions on a regular basis,and solenoid failure is not out of the ordinary.Good luck.

F4AEL trans,old mazda design.Many possible causes across a broad spectrum from low line pressure,bad torque convertor,to electrical solenoid failure,and even internal transmission failure.All systems involved with the trans have to be checked and evaluated.Main line pressure can be checked with a mechanical gauge,trouble codes pulled from the vehicle to determine any possible problem with the trans electronics from shift solenoids to speed sensors.Pan contents and fluid condition also a factor in the final diagnosis.A complete under car check to verify the drive axles are fully engaged into the trans.I also have at work a Zoom Technologies box,some call a breakout box,that allows complete manual control of the trans,eliminating the vehicle computer from the picture.This is to isolate the trans from it's control system,and verify the problem is indeed with the trans,and not the computer.Sophisticated,expensive equipment is really needed to diagnose properly,including a scan tool,and breakout box,and a source like All Data online to run down,diagnose,and repair trouble codes.

The transmission in your car is the F4A33-1 model.I rebuild these transmissions and many others very similar to it on a regular basis.There are several areas that can cause the symptoms you are experiencing,and the first thing that should be done is a scan tool acquired for pulling trouble codes and looking at transmission data real time.If any trouble codes are present,they should be diagnosed and repaired.A faulty PRNDL switch,or faulty speed sensors (pulse generators) can cause your symptoms,and they are mounted externally on the transmission.If they are faulty,trouble codes will be present,and operation can be monitored with the scan tool by looking at the data stream.All of these external items have to be checked for proper operation.If all external items and controls are ok,there are 2 other problematic areas with this transmission as well as all Mitsubishi's,and that is the solenoids mounted on the valve body.The valve body is mounted inside the lower trans pan,and the solenoids on top of the valve body.They go bad on a regular basis,and i replace them ALL with brand new Rostra solenoids.The other problematic area is the 4th gear clutches,and the clutches and drum can be removed from the trans,and the trans doesnt have to be pulled for that.The 4th clutches and drum is located behind the side cover.They are very thin,and relatively small,and burn up easily.With all those bases covered,the only thing left to check good or bad is the transmission internally,or a computer problem.Mitsubishi's computers from those year models were very delicate and went bad often.I have a remanufactured computer in one of my Mitsu cars.Good luck.
