A 4l60e transmission how do I no if i have a bad 3-2 downshift sol on a 1994 chevy Pick up

Albert, Have truck scanned for trouble codes. To test a transmission solenoid, use hand held ohm meter. Instructions in second link below, the attached links are informative on the different procedures used to test solenoids.

Im getting codes P0011 and P0014 on my 2011 kia serento. Is mean my camshaft sensor is bad? if so where is it?

These codes have to do with the CVVT(continuously variable valve timing)solenoid. I guess it is a 2.4 liter engine, the solenoid is located right above the power steering pump at the #1 cylinder in the cylinder head. If it is the 3.5 liter it is located on top of each cylinder and is accessed after the intake plenum is removed. Either way, the solenoid controls valve timing of the exhaust cam via the solenoid which uses oil pressure to advance or retard the timing. The first step is to verify proper weight of oil and level. If the engine is over due for service, get it done. If the oil is not an issue, then the solenoid is becoming sluggish in advancing or retarding the camshaft and should be replaced.

I have a 2007 Dodge RAM 1500. Where is the shift solenoid located.

All the shift solenoids are in the transmission. You will have to remove the oil pan from the bottom of the transmission to access these. All the solenoids are on a package/ housing. They come off as a unit. You can replace these one at a time, but you really need to know what your looking for. It could be a bad solenoid , bad wiring in the transmission, bad connection at the plug going to the transmission, bad wiring going to the transmission. Computers will pop out a code, but you have to check everything that is related to that sensor/ solenoid.

Check engine light. Code: Exhaust gas

Usually this is due to carbon build up. Fuel injector cleaners will not help. It involves removal of the EGR valve and inspection of the valve for carbon and the passages for carbon. You can also test the valve itself prior to removal if it is vaccuum operated. Unplug the vac hose, plug it and then install a piece of vac hose long enough to reach it without bending over the engine. While the engine is idleing apply vaccuum to the hose via a pump or the old fashioned way via sucking on it and note engine idle change. If none either the baffle is bad inside the valve or it is clogged. Hope this helps.
Also, some EGR valves have a vac control solenoid and those go bad too. If the idle does change via the procedure above then suspect the control vac solenoid.

Starter solenoid replace , when do I know it's the solenoid, and not the starter motor itself ?

If the solenoid goes bad, the starter will spin freely creating a loud noise. If the starter is bad, you generally here a click noise (the solenoid kicking out but the starter not turning)

Hi i have 02 altima 3.5 v6 who have check engine light with code p1800 what is manufactured transmission control can anyone help me what that means?

You may want to have someone else take a look at it. The Nissan P1800 trouble code is not a transmission control problem. It is described as follows:

Trouble diagnosis name: VIAS control solenoid valve circuit.
Component Description:
The VIAS control solenoid valve cuts the intake manifold vacuum signal for power valve control. It responds to ON/OFF signals from the ECM. When the solenoid is off, the vacuum signal from the intake manifold is cut. When the ECM sends an ON signal the coil pulls the plunger downward and feeds the vacuum signal to the power valve actuator.
DTC detecting condition:
•An excessively low or high voltage signal is sent to ECM through the valve.
Possible cause:
•Harness or connectors (The solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted.)
•VIAS control solenoid valve

Check your vacuum hoses to make sure they are in good shape and are securely attached Aslo check the wiring harness is ok and securely attached as well. If they are, you’ll probably need to replace your VIAS. It's right next to the throttle body.

Electrical connection for the pressur control

A transmission solenoid is an electro-hydraulic valve that controls fluid flow into and throughout an automatic transmission. Solenoids can be normally open or normally closed. They operate via a voltage or current supplied via the transmission computer or controller. Transmission solenoids are usually installed in a transmission valve body, Transmission Control Unit, or transmission control module.

98 Jeep Grand Cherokee - will not start - starter solenoid clicks once when engaged but starter will not turn engine - plenty of voltage (14V with jumper cables connected) going to solenoid - with screw...

The starter is bad. Solenoid is good, the starter itself is bad. You can remove it and take it to Schuck's/Chief's/Kragen/NAPA, they will test it for FREE. You can't beat free!!!

2000 Kia sephia starting problem

The problem could be a few things. First, you could have a bad starter. You could have a bad solenoid (device on the starter that "makes the contact" between the battery and the starter. Finally, I have seen bad cables between the battery and the starter. If you have access to a multimeter, you can test the resistance of the cable between the battery and the starter solenoid. It should read almost zero ohms. If the cable is heavily corroded, it could be much higher and would prevent the starter from operating. (this is very unlikely though) I would lean heavily toward the starter or the solenoid. Let me know if you want to know how to test the solenoid.
