1993 chevy cavalier, 2.2 automatic transmission. how to replace speedometer solenoid inside transmission? The part I have is a wells TCS2 solenoid. I have no clue where it goes. the instructions with it are for wiring and hooking it up, not installation. I have 245,000 miles, when car is hot I will come to quick stop and car is not downshifting and stalls, then hard to start back up. I have to manually down shift. no engine light is ever on. I have changed trans filter 4 times since I have owned it. I don't know to go through the bottom pan, or side of transmission. thanks for your time, respectfully, steve

    My 1993 Cavalier does the same thing, but there is not an overdrive? that I know of, if i come to a stop, usually after driving long distance, the car will stall, just like a mauanl tranny would do if you do not push on the clutch. If I restart, as soon as it is put into drive, it kills the engine. Down shifting as I come to a stop seems to end the problem. This only happens once a month or so.

    What causes this?

My Car Ise to do this as well and i changed the sensor on the transmission and it stopped doing it. This was a year ago!

Disconnect the plug going to transmission. Think it is a 4 pin. This dissables overdrive. That is the problem. The car won't downshift and that's why it dies. Just remember to plug it back in on a longer trip!
