Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
Where is the shift solenoid located? i know there are 2 and i believe they are in the transmission but WHERE? im a mom who likes 2 DIY. i have 2 repair manuals but no help. please tell me what area,under what,next to what......please give me spacifics. thanx
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
