Kirkx they didnot ask you if you could tell them if their solenoid was bad. they asked how to replace it. you think way too deeply into problems. the first rule i learned working on cars.... keep it simple stupid k.i.s.s. k.i.s.s.

Not recommended. The solenoids for the transmission are inside the pan, but you won't know if the control circuilt is powering the solenoid correctly or not? You need to tell us more symptoms, and perhaps we can then tell. But you have not told us the basics, like is there plenty of fluid, is it burned, does the transmision have power and ground, etc.?

    Grsmnky88, the reason I said it was not recommended is because he said "solenoid" singular, and we know there are many solenoids. Anyone capable of actually accomplishing something inside the pan would know that already. In fact, they would not have been asking. And anyone opening the transmission pan, who does not understand the cleanliness protocols for an automatic, is just going to screw it up even worse. I would never encourage someone inexperienced, to open an auto transmission pan. It is not a reasonable thing to do, and we would be much more helpful if we tried to determine what he really needs, that he could do.

    Here is a link describing some of the inputs and internal solenoids in an automatic transmission.

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

most likely due to a stripped out torque converter or a broken pump shaft. trans. has to come out to repair either or. you should make sure the fluid is full first. with the car running and warm, check fluid- if it seems over full, the pump shaft is broken, if it's just full- probably the torque conv., if its low add trans. fluid (mercon 5) 1 qt. at a time until in crosshatched area on the dipstick. hope this helps and good luck

Have you checked the transmission fluid? IF that is ok then the issue is most likely related to either the torque converter and solenoid or the brake sensor switch.

Failed OBDII Diagnstic trouble codes P0761 and O1744 What does this mean?


code P0761-
Possible causes - Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Faulty shift solenoid 3 valve
- Shift solenoid 3 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 3 valve circuit is open or shorted
P0761 FORD Description Shift solenoid valve 3 is turned ON or OFF by the Transmission Control Module (TCM) in response to signals sent from the park/neutral position (PNP) switch, vehicle speed and Engine Control Module (ECM) (throttle opening). Gears will then be shifted to the optimum position. When is the code detected? The P0761 code is detected when the ECM has detected a mechanical fault with the solenoid energized, valve stuck off code O1744- is not a code these are the ones I have found that come close

That is a transmission warning light. You need to take it to a transmission shop where they have a special code reader that will tell you what the problem is. My car did the same thing was lucky found out it was just a solenoid in the transmission that needed replaced and not the trans itself.

you might have to replace the solenoid also called swtch, and service the transmission since any durt in the system will cause the solenoids to stuck, but the solenoids are inside the transmission
