Got me a complete manual for 199 jeep factory model and found location of each individual unit in question. Manual gives u possible solution to each code and repair and or replace. As a mechanic myself testing, trouble shooting and repair was not that difficult. Shift solenoid was very difficult to get to. Located under the head lamp passenger side.

SOURCE: 96 bmw 740il misfire

This is a pretty common problem. I would change your valve cover gaskets. They run around ~ 50 bucks. If they are bad it will leak oil into spark plug well and cause a misfire. Very known on the 740.. Also if tune was not anytime not too long ago id change spark plugs while you at it. Then clear the computer and if you still get misfire on 8 try changing the ignition coil which is right about the cylinder with cylinder ignition coil 5. clear the computer. if you get random misfire and misfire cyclinder 5 after then its your ignition coil. parts store runs around 100 bucks

SOURCE: 2001 BMW 740iL is sputtering when I accelarate and shaky when idl

A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.

SOURCE: What does code P0753 Shift Solenoid mean?

P0753 means your powertrain computer detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the circuit to your transmission's 1-2 shift solenoid. When the code is active, your transmission runs in a fail safe/limp home mode that only lets certain gear ratios function in the transmission.

The solenoid in your application looks like this
1edc2e6.jpg and it is located sometimes on the side of the transmission, but my guess is from the looks of it, it might be found inside the transmission, only accessible with the oil pan removed.
The problem might be the solenoid itself, or the wiring going to the solenoid from the computer that controls the transmission, or the computer itself.

SOURCE: I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL.

Depends how competent you are here and what sort of tools you have.You will also need to replace oil filter if you wish to replace oil within the engine.The oil has to be drained from underneath the engine and allow it to sit for few hours while draining as this will ensure all the deposits at the bottom comes off.

Chevy impala 2005 3.4 engine. I have code P0753 it says 1-2 shift solenoid. will flushing transmission fix that problem. where are the shift solenoid on that car

code p0753 refers to shift solenoid(SS) A-electrical===causes--wiring--shift solenoid--ECM/TCM
The fault is electrical as it is a solenoid ( an object that has a coil wound around a core in which a bar of steel is magnetically moved when the coil is energized This bar movement moves valves or locks bands or clutches)
Change the solenoid and check out the transmission control module(TCM).
changing the oil will be good for the transmission but will not fix the electrical fault.

What is code p0753 for toyota avalon 1998?

It's for the shift solenoid in the transmission. When the transmission shifts from 1st to 2nd , the transmission computer is detecting a fault. First make sure the transmission fluid is clean. After that there are some electrical checks that need to be done.

My 2004 Kia Rio starts fine but shuts off after 4-5 seconds. The funny thing is if I shift to Drive within the 4-5 seconds, it stays on, but in Park or Neutral, it will shut off.

in the causes for p0753 code there is a shift solenoid ( which you have replaced ) also TCM and a ECM. The transmission TCM (transmission control module ) is responsible for most of the problems so have it checked out especially the wiring and connectors to the TCM

Let me give more history on the question, replaced 98 Cherokee auto transmission with 2000 tranny. DTC code P0753. DBR says short to ground, no communication from TCM to PCM. Electrical problem occurs...

code p0753 refers to shift solenoid (SS) A electrical===causes--wiring---shift solenoid---ECM/TCM
I'm thinking that with the transmission upgrade and the fault code showing wiring and TCM as faulty I would be paying serious attention to the configuration of the wires in the plugs. Just because the connectors go together may not mean that the corresponding wires go to the right bits. you may have to invest in a good work shop manual for the gear boxes and trace the wiring circuits out and adjust the pins in the connectors to the right circuits.

Do the colors on the transmission solenoids of a 2001 BMW 740il E38 engine relate to anything specific?

If any of those solenoids were bad it would not shift at all. If a servo is sticking, that's an indication of dirty fluid. Do not mess with solenoids and change the filter and fluid. After servicing the filter and fluid, perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history. The scan should reveal any solenoid or speed sensor problems.

I have a 1998 bmw 740il and when i go to put it in drive it feels like im starting off in 4th or 5th gear does anybody know whats wrong

Page 63. It seems as though you have your transmission in Manual Program. Normal driving should use Adaptive program.

Or, your transmission is slipping.
