The solenoids are attached to the valve body. you nust remove the side cover to replace the solenoids. Your problem is probably burt clutches in the third clutch When you changed the oil was it black? this is an indication of burt clutches. only repair would be to replace the transmission.

Engine speed hunts on idle. Auto trans slow shift.


The fast idle valve is inside the throttle body. Sometimes it backs out and needs turned back in (it's threaded). This will cause the loping idle.

Get transmission filter changed with new fluid. Honda does not recommend transmission flushing.

Check the prrimary and secondary resistance on your coil. Also check the resistance of the plug wires and plug gap.

Transmision slipping and using fluid


If you have a vacuum modulator on the side of the transmission make sure it is good...any trans fluid in the vacuum hose or inside the modulator shows failure. Unit should not "use" fluid unless there is an external leak. Failure there will affect shifting.

Toyota pickup 1988 V6 Auto tranny does not shift into low 1


I guess the best , easiest & cheapest thing to do, right of the start is get fluid & filter changed, and lube all cables & linkages thoroughly, unless that's all been done recently.
