Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla
Within a few minutes of the check engine light comming on my car began shifting very hard (auto trans). From a stop, shifting from 1st to 2nd to 3rd feels like a car behind me is bumping into my rear end. Once I'm in high gear and cruising it runs fine. Had a free test at Autozone and got code #2716. It's an 06 and has 96000 mi. hiway, so my wuarantee is up. Do I have to eat this one or was there some kind of "hidden" recall? I think the part is approx. $800. Can I just "plug" it in myself or should I take it to the dealer to do? Thanx Ed.
It's the tramissin pressure control solinoid, about $50.00. depends on where you get it, best place to get one is from a "u-wrench-it" store. its on the top right side of tramission 3 screws and a plug kinda hard to reach unless you got small hands, but easy fix...a dealership will cost you about 800.00-1000.00 because they will tell you they need to drop trany to reach it( they dont need too, they just want to charge you the labor for it, while the mechanic will say he took 4-5 hours to fix reality is hell do it in about 45 min.
