Below the link for Chrysler/Dodge auto-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 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 at least for similar cars
2. Also at 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

Where is the shift soleniod located?

The transmission shift solenoids are located in the valve body, which is in the transmission. If you remove the transmission pan you will see the valve body. I believe any faulty shift solenoids are serviced as an entire valve body on the Avengers.

P0700 and 0760 code for dodge avenger 2008

Hi Leetroy, I'm glad to help! The P0760 code you have is: Transmission Solenoid Pressure Switch Assembly. The problem could be in the wiring, it also could be the solenoid assembly itself or it could be the engine control module (PCM). It will need to be checked out to verify which part is bad. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Leetroy.

Need to find out what trouble codes p1776 and p1782 mean backfiring from intake

P0700 indicates that there has been a trans problem. The definition of P1776 is
P1776 solenoid switch valve latched in the low / reverse position.
The transmission in your car uses 1 solenoid to perform two functions.. supply fluid to the low / reverse clutch, and supply fluid to the torque converter clutch.Switching the output of the solenoid between the two is controlled by what's known as the solenoid switch valve in the valve body.
This can be caused by dirty fluid and debris in the valve body, by a bad solenoid, or even low battery voltage. A chrysler factory scan tool is necessary to go through the diagnostic process to determine what the exact cause of the code is. Don't let anyone sell you a trans rebuild over it though-at the worst the valve body may need to be removed and cleaned up. Valve body work or solenoid pack replacement can both be done without removing the trans from the vehicle

A. There was a Transmission Control Unit software upgrade for this.

Transaxle Desensitization To Intermittent Faults/Driveability Improvements

  • 1998 Avenger/Sebring/Talon
  • 1998 Chrysler Voyager (European Market)
  • 1998 Cirrus/Stratus/Breeze
  • 1998 Sebring Convertible
  • 1998 Concorde/Intrepid
  • 1998 Town & Country/Caravan/Voyager
This information applies to vehicles built prior to December 13, 1997 (MDH 1213xx) with a 41TE/AE or 42LE transaxle.
It then lists all the conditions it improves upon. I would take it to the Chrysler Dealer and see if it applies to your vehicle and if so, get the upgrade done.

I have a 1999 dodge avenger it want start

When you had the starter checked did you check the solenoid on the starter? If you can find a way to get to it, try using something hard to tap your solenoid and then try starting it. If that doesn't work try tapping the solenoid and starter while someone else turns the key. The starter may be good but the solenoid could be stuck inside. Hope this helps let me know how it goes. Good luck!

My 1998 dodge avenger automatic will not shift out of second what will cause this the computer i hooked it up to just gave me these codes po733, po700, po734 the motor is a 2.5

code po700 is what the pcm gets from the tcm when there is a problem with the transmission-anywhere from fluid level, sensor, solenoid, tcm problem, or mechanical problem.
the situation you have with the car being in 2nd gear is called "limp-in" mode. so you can limp-in to a repair center.
