I have pulled trans pan on 1996 sunfire but still dont see shift silinoids.where are they hiding?


Most of the shift solenoids are located under the "side" pan of the transmission, not the underside transmission pan. The side pan is difficult to access and might best be handled by someone who has removed this type of cover before.

How to install transmission solenoid in a 2001 pontiac bonneville 2.8


The solenoids are under the side pan on the transmission on the drivers side. You will have to go through the drivers side fender well. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, spindle, take the rack and pinion loose, install engine support, place jack under left side (drivers side) of subframe, remove subframe mounting bolts, loosen (do not remove) right side subframe mounting bolts, lower left side of subframe 4 to 6 inchs, go to engine support and lower engine and transmission down just enough so that transmission side pan can be removed. Thanks and good luck with your repairs.

Where exactly is the drain plug for the transmission located on a 99 dodge caravan?


There is not drain plug on the dodge caravan.
Drain the Transmission Fluid and Replace the Filter
Raise, support and level the van on jack stands or ramps. Place a drain pan that can hold at least 4 quarts of fluid beneath the transmission.
Employ a socket wrench to remove the retaining bolts on the fluid pan, except for the two on either end. Loosen the two bolts on the lower end of the pan. Gently pull down on the edge of the pan so that it separates from the transmission case. Let the fluid drain. You may need to tap the pan with a rubber hammer to separate the pan from the case.
Remove the last four bolts and the pan when the fluid finishes draining. Loosen the bolts a little at a time, allowing the remaining fluid to drain. Clean the pan and the magnet inside.
Scrape the old sealant from the pan flange with an appropriate scraping tool. Do the same on the mating surface of the transmission case.
Remove the two screws that hold the filter on the transmission with a T25 Torx bit and remove the filter. Look for the rubber filter or O ring between the filter and valve body and remove it.
nstall a new transmission fluid filter and gasket. Using a torque wrench, tighten the mounting screws to 40 inch pounds
Apply a thin, 1/8 inch bead of RTV sealant on the mounting flange of the fluid pan. Replace the fluid pan on the transmission and tighten the bolts to 165 inch pounds with a torque wrench. Return the van to the ground.
Replace the New Transmission Fluid
Pour 4 quarts of ATF PLUS 3 Type 7176 fluid into the filler tube using a funnel. Start the engine and let it idle for a minute or two. Apply the parking brake and the service brake. Move the gear selector through the gears and stop at "Park" or "Neutral.
Add enough fluid to bring the level to 1/8 inch below the "Add" indicator, if needed. Let the van run for another 10 to 20 minutes to allow the engine and transmission to reach a normal operating temperature
Check the fluid level again to ensure it reached the "Hot" indicator on the dipstick. Add more fluid if needed and replace the dipstick in the filler tube. Turn off the engine.
Good luck and hope this helps.

All you need to replace that motor mount is a half decent socket set. The bottom mounts are holding up the engine and transmission. Good luck!
