98 Mercury Sable no overdrive

I have a 98 Mercury sable with a check engine light on. When i got it hooked up to a computer it stated that I have a shift solenoid valve stuck off. Is there any way to fix this with going inside the tranny

I would suggest trying a tranny service. Changing the fluid and filter may help this. You can also put some transmission conditioner or something in it and try that. Lucas makes a real good transmission cleaner/conditioner. Be careful not to overfill the tranny though by adding this product. If this doesn't fix it then the soleniod will probably need to be replaced which requires tearing into the tranny

1997 mercury sable won't shift into overdrive. We think we may need to replace the transmission. If so, what vehicle transmissions will work in a sable?


first of all, check the kickdown cable to transmission. it may be out of adjustment. or just bad.if its the cable out of adjustment, it is sure cheaper then a tranny.
