    have u had the trouble codes checked, this may be a shift solenoid or a wiring issue to the shift solenoids.

Is the shift solenoid getting a signal to shift? a code doen't always mean the part is the problem, it can be the wiring and the PCM (powertrain control module) as well causing the problem, but the PCM is the least likely cause, check the wiring from the trans connector to the PCM..

Is the check engine light on? if so, its best to get it scanned and go from there. my guess is that a shift solenoid is not functioning correctly. if the code confirms this, dropping the pan and replacing it should remedy the problem.

    from what i see PO785 refers to a 3-2 downshift solenoid. i'm not sure which solenoid this refers to in the 1 and 2 convention. Double check to make sure you switched the right one. i've heard that the ignition switch can actually cause similar problems. (i wouldn't go that route just yet). the harness and TCM are also suspect. i need to do a bit more research on the code. keep me posted.

Need a rough estimate on how much it will cost to have a cv boot repaired on an 1997 GMC Jimmy 4x4.


A transmission shop would cast about 1 hour labor plus the parts. Labor cost is around $75.00 an hour here, and the Reman CV joint with the core exchange is around $80.00 and without the core exchange $160.00. Hope this helps.So best i can give you an average $225.00 but call around a reputable transmission shop, since they work on this type of repair all the time. Good luck.

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
