The best advise I can give you is, if you do not know what you are doing, Please don't try it! Trust me, you must know how to do this correctly or you'll do more harm than good! You'll be better off to pay a good mechanic to do this type of repair! JMHO It shouldn't cost but about $80-100 bucks in labor.

If you want to try & replace them yourself, the first thing is to drain and drop the pan. Once you have the pan removed, if you look at the wires running into the valve body (I believe on the pass. side) they go into the gov. pressure solenoid & the transducer. The governor press solenoid is the one you need to replace!

I can tell you from experience, most times these fail is due to excess debris buildup on the fine micron screen on the soleniod! If you have a lot of metal present in the bottom of the pan or all on the screen, your transmission will need rebuilding or replacing!

But, there is a metal cover that holds the plate onto the valve body. The cover & plate has about 5-6 bolts & screws that hold it in place. You must remove the screws & bolts to remove the cover & plate. First, unhook your wires going to the transducer & the solenoid, then remove all the bolts. Once it is all removed the cover & plate will slide off and you then will have access to remove the solenoid & transducer.

Clean everything well with some good carb. cleaner. You can remove the screen on the solenoid and clean it as well and more likely than not your old solenoid will work like new! But, I would recommend replacing it the first time. After you do all of this, repeat the process to reinstall it all. Keep in mind that the solenoid is held in place by the cover, once you slide the cover off the solenoid will pop right out of the plate. The transducer is held in place by a clip, if you look down into the plate you will see the clip that holds the transducer in place.

I would HIGHLY recommend servicing your transmission and installing a inline filter right before the trans cooler. You can pick up a inline trans. filter at most any parts store! It will prolong the life of your transmission! Make sure you use the right transmission fluid in your trans., it takes a certain type of fluid!

Hope this helps you. ;)
