HI.OK THE TRANSMISSION IN YOUR GRAND AM IS EITHER A 3T40 OR A 3T45.THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT SOLONIDS (YES THERE ARE 2, GOOD JOB) ARE LOCATED IN THE UPPER VALVE CONTROL,LOCATED UNDER THE TRANS SIDE COVER . THIS COVER IS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE IF THE TRASMISSION AND IS BEST VIEWED BY REMOVING THE PASSEMGER SIDE TIRE AND PLASTIC MUD GUARD.MY QUESTION TO YOU IS WHY GOING AFTER THE SOLONOIDS.I HAVE DONE MANY OF THESE TRANSMISSIONS AND HARDLY GO BAD.ANY WAY THE TRICK TO GRTTING THE SIDE COVER OFF IS TO LOWER THE PASSENGER SIDE IF THE ENGINE CRADLE DOWN AS LOW AS POSSIBLE.ONCE THE COVER IS REMOVED THE SOLONOIDS ARE RIGHT THERE,THERE IS ALSO A PCS SOLONOID AND A TCC SOLONOID (THEY WILL LOOK DIFFERENT THAN THE 2 IDENTICAL SHIFT SOLONOIDS) THEY WILL BE HELD IN PLACE W/BOBBY PIN TYPE CLIPS.GOOD LUCK SORRY FOR THE CAP LETTERS (IM SUCH A ******) RAY

If this was electronic in nature the light would be on. No you have a mechanical fault in the transmission and it sounds like you will need to overhaul it.

96 s10 4cyl automatic shifts great through 1-3 but seems to bottom out and even downshift instead of going into overdrive, drives fine when in drive only.


I believe you have a 4l60e transmission.Do you have a chck engine light? The unit may have a 3-2 downshift solenoid going bad or a possible band ''servo'' leaking. The band applies in 2nd and 4th.You may also have a shift solenoid starting to malfnction......Best

Shift solenoid B malfuction


All the solenoids in your 41TE trans are located in one part called the solenoid pack. It's located on the front of the trans, usually costs about 200 bucks for the part. This is likely the problem, but cannot rule out wiring issues without testing.
