Transmission rebuilt by a local guy solenoid problem

I just had the transmission rebuilt by a local guy for $1000. he has it back in but now it wont shift automatically. Threw a code 4 (?) maybe it means D4. Anyways the prognosis is that the pressure solenoid (the one that looks like two pack of cards with two 1/2 quarter rolls attached) that is bad. It was "working" before the rebuild as the car ran, shifted (really hard into 2nd gear) but it did shift all the way up down. He cleaned the solenoid thinking it would be a good idea and then after reinstall the car has to be shifted manually. But it shifts smoothly when doing that. Is it possible the part was wet and just needs to dryout or needs to be blown out (air)? I'd rather not have to buy a $250 part. thanks

If what your saying is that after you take it from the shop this started happening then he needs to replace this for you. The reason you had the transmission rebuilt was to make sure everything work properly he was also suppose to check the pressure which i mean by doing a series of test to make sure everything was working and to conclude what was wrong so this way he know what to change long story short you didn't get your transmission rebuilt properly they need to return your money or pay for this part yet again i think you was being ripped off by the rebuilt shop.good luck

Transmission linkage

hopefully it is just the linkage. worse case the transmission has gotta come out and ur lookin at 2500-3000 sorry that's to get it rebuilt. 3 choices if trans needs fixing most expensive - rebuild your transmission 2500-3000 2nd choice find a decent rebuilt transmission 1800-2500 or 3rd option cheapest find used trans from a wrecker and install 1000-1500 but no guarantees unless the wrecker gives u a warranty on the trans. labour time is constant at about 7 hour give or take an hour

2002 buick rendevous awd tranny wont shift out of first gear

let transmission shop do pressure test and diagnostic check.many things will cause transmission not to shift right.could have faulty over drive solenoid.faulty VSS sensor it controls shifts. could have faulty TPS sensor or TCM.the first and second shift valves or solenoids bad your transmission is electronically control many things will cause problems the transmission shop use scanner to check out all shift solenoids.the older transmissions use modulator valve and governor valve control transmission shifts but the newer transmissions shifts control by TCM and ECM.

Afer putting transmission in my 1996 chevy pickup truck it wont start

check your connections on the starter solenoid, the wires on the solenoid if they become loose will cause this problem and you will have juice to the other components. also you probrably unhooked the battery before installing the trans. so recheck the connections on the battery for a proper ground and positive hookup, clean these connection to be sure.

1999 chevy blazer rebuilt transmission wont shift properly

First change the fluid and filter while you have the transmission pan off take the shift solenoids out one at a time and look for graphite build up in or around the solenoid.

I have a 99 dodge 4x4 5.9 had trans rebuilt a month ago and now my ck. enegine light is on and it shifts hard took it to autozone and had them ck. it they said that 3-4 solenoid fault-no rpm change at...

If a solenoid is bad, take the transmission back to the transmission shop where it was rebuilt to change the solenoid in question. If it's the computer, change it, but unless it's not communicating with the scanner, I wouldn't suspect that.

My durango wont go in reverse, no warning just got in and started it went to back out and no response.

It could be a plugged up or burnt out solenoids for reverse in the transmission. Or, it could be a worn out linkage to the transmission.

But, I am leaning towards the solenoid.

To replace it, the transmission needs to be rebuilt at a bench.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a subaru auto and i dont have revers when hot have try flushing the auto fluid but did not work. what do i have to do?

OK, the first step you have already done, checked the fluid level, and flushed and filled the auto transmission fluid, I gather.

The second thing I would try to have done is to have the transmission rebuilt, if the first solution doesn't work.

I know this costs a lot, but if you plan on keeping the car this is the only solution.

The linkage may be worn out or more likely, the solenoid inside the transmission is acting up.

Or, the clutch is worn out for reverse.

It's most likely a solenoid, but the transmission must be torn down and rebuilt to rectify the situation.

Try a local automatic transmission repair shop.

Good luck on this repair.

93' Grand Cherokee does not auto-shift to high gear until I hit 50-mph.

This is most likely the throttle position sensor. It sounds odd I know, but the throttle position sensor helps tell the transmission when to shift. This same thing happened to my Jeep. The sensor is located on the intake manifold on the engine and costs around 45 bucks.

To the guy who spent 2300 dollars getting a transmission rebuilt: They saw you coming and you got totally screwed over. I can get a cherokee transmission rebuilt any day of the week in the range of 800 to 1000 dollars. WOW check out your shops and mechanics a little better before you jump into a rip off.
