The solenoid comes out with one screw and one wire connection once the pan is dropped.

My 97 jimmy auto transmission wont shift to 3rd . rpm just go up and sounds like im in neutral . just started this yesterday..single broke mom needs help please


Make sure your tranmission oil level is correct. You need to check it with the vehicle warm and running with it in park. If the oil seems dark or smells burnt that is not a good sign. There are shift solenoids in your transmission that can fail but you need a scan tool to troubleshoot those. If you have an Aamco transmission shop near they may test it for free. It also may be more that just a shift solenoid and may need a new transmission.

The shift solenoid is a valve that controls shift timing.
The solenoid pack is located inside the transmission on top of the valve body.

97 Jimmy is having vacuum problems


No. A 97 Jimmy doesn't have points either. Only way that works if it's not original motor.

Shift solenoid


you can change the solenoids you should be able to drop the tranny pan and they are right there but you might want to unbolt the cross member that holds the tranny up so the pan comes down easier or you chance breaking the solenoids if you try to force the pan out, and i belive there are 4 solenoids in there

4x4 not working


Hello;
Have you checked the front axle shift solenoid? I have seen these break and have seen the fork shear as well.Make sure it is engaging when you push the button.
Thanks;

I have a 97 chevy tahoe and the 4x4 wont lock in i just replaced the actuator and it just blinks on 4x4 . i do have 12 volts @ the harness to????


Your transfer case could be locked up. Try pulling the shifter motor (servo) off of the transfer case and manually shifting the vehicle into 4x4. Make sure to block the wheels as it will roll if you shift into neutral. If you cant shift it, you need to have a professional look at the insides of your transfer case.
