Inside the transmission case above the pan. You should probably let a transmission mechanic handle this one.

    It maybe in "limp-home" mode, have you had a code reader attached for diagnostic codes? The parts stores will do this for you. The shift solenoid is connected to the valve-body under the transmission pan. When servicing these use the proper ATF fluid and change often to keep solenoids clean. You can check the electrical resistance of the solinoids with an ohmmeter to determine condition. Replacements are expensive.

Electronic pressure control solenoid circuit p1745. Check engine light on 2000 ford escort, 4cl, automatic. Advance auto told me it was a dealer part but I can't find it on any of the ford websites?...


Here is what the service manual says about the EPC solenoid, the processor looks at allot of different inputs to command the solenoids, such as Throttle Position Sensor, Vehicle Speed Sensors, Transmission Range Sensor and RPM signal, The PCM controls the shift patterns for the transmission. Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) Solenoid
The electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid is located on the main control valve body and is controlled by the PCM. The EPC controls line pressure used to apply and release clutches and bands in the transmission.
The 2-3 shift solenoid is located on the main control valve body and is switched on and off by electrical signals from the PCM. The 2-3 shift solenoid activates the 2-3 shift valve which controls the automatic shifting between second and third gear. Second gear is established when the 2-3 shift solenoid is switched on. The 2-3 shift solenoid is switched off when vehicle speed increases and requires a second to third gear upshift.
The 3-4 shift solenoid is located on the main control valve body and is switched on and off by electrical signals from the PCM. The 3-4 shift solenoid activates the 3-4 shift valve which controls the automatic shifting between third and fourth gear. Third gear is established when the 3-4 solenoid is switched off. The 3-4 shift solenoid is switched on when vehicle speed increases and requires a third to fourth gear upshift.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

How do I locate the transmission shift soleniod. I this a promlem I can fix? Can I get to it without dropping the transmission. Ihave access to an auto shop, or should I take it to a transmission shop?


Its located inside the trans and need to open the drain plug on the transmission oil pan with a socket and drain the oil into a drain pan, then need to remove the bolts that secure the transmission oil pan to the transmission.

Now could you to remove the bolt that holds the transmission dipstick bracket to the bell housing with a socket. You can locate the bolt from the engine compartment. Place a scraper between the transmission pan and the bottom of the transmission and break the seal loose so you can remove the pan.

Remove the defective solenoid by removing the bolt that secures the solenoid to the harness. Three solenoids control the shifting on the Jeep. All have white and yellow wiring harnesses connected to them. The solenoid to the left (towards the Cherokee's engine) controls shifting "overdrive." The solenoid in the middle controls shifts between second and third gear. The third solenoid, closest to the rear of the Cherokee, controls shifts between first and second and between third and fourth. If you know which gear your transmission is stuck in, replace the solenoid that corresponds with that gear. If you are not sure, remove all three.

Why you askw about this? Has some symthom or fault code there?

2001 volkswagon jetta wont shift passed second gear its an automatic


HI. I would inspect the transmission fluid level, asap. This is the first issue that may cause this no shift. Low fluid level can damage the gear assembly, if it is not at a optimal level. If the fluid is at an acceptable level, this will lead to a failed shift solenoid. These devices are located inside the transmission, mounted on the valve body. You will need to remove the transmission pan, in order to, expose the shift solenoid. there are three(control,kickdown,OD). The solenoid at question, will be your control solenoid(shift). This damaged device will need to be tested for proper Resistance, or continuity. A multimeter can be used for testing. Each solenoid is equipped with two terminals. use these terminals for testing. This will , also, require you to drain all the transmission fluid, as well.


NOTE_ If you are uncomfortable with disassembling the transmission, i would suggest to contact your local mechanic for this inspection, and repair.

hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
