Peter Lange: Thank you so much for this precise video. My son bought a 2002 SL2 and the
tranny was making noise between shifting every gear. After researching the
problem via the net and running across your video, we decided to buy a
solenoid and try changing it out. I discovered that all five solenoids are
the same "Part Number: 21003344; Part: Auto Trans Control Solenoid". I
asked them twice, and yes all the solenoids are the same. I tried and tried
to find, "transmission Pressure Control Solenoid" to no avail. I am
leaving the part number on here, so people can easily reference this for
themselves. My son and I spent 3 hours replacing the solenoid; took the car
for a drive and........WOW....easy, noise free shifting. We test drove the
car through the city for half an hour and perfect operation. I want to
encourage anyone out there to strongly consider this video's advice. Pete
..and good luck.
Daryl Krans: I just want to say, this is an excellent video. I just had to replace the
PC solenoid in a 99 sc2. Without the aid of this video, I would have been
completely lost. I was able to replace the solenoid and get it all back
together in 3 1/2 hours. THANK YOU!!! This was a time saver and of
course, a $$ saver!
gerg keehner: thank you GREAT video, I thought the kids yelling in the back ground was
priceless. Very helpful.
avery7001: (o;my 2002 was banging into gear then one morning no reverse drives but
doesnt want to shift ;o) does that sound like solenoids to you ?
Wally Kazaam: Where can you get one of those solenoids? Or do you have to hunt for a used
one. I can't find them.
9Venturi9: Nice Vid - Thanks...
Sup Games: my brother has 05 mercury montego when driving only goes up to 35-40 mph
and throws rpm up to 3200 roughly and shifting into drive and reverse
makes clunking noise any thought plz
Josh Wyllie: I got a 2000 sw2 station wagon that shifts hardcore 3re-4th and 4th -5th,I
changed both solenoids and it still shifts hard but not as extreme,cud a
bad pressure solenoid still cause this and if so which one is it...
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof do you think i can just pull up on it?, and if worst comes to worse
use a crobar to break it out and replace the whole electrical connector and
Kyle Gunner: I had hard shifting issues through all gears ....changed valve body shifts
fine now BUT kinda hangs in 1st only when I forst put it into drive after
that its fine..............could this be pressure Pressure Control
Solenoid? anybody have this issue?
tspoof: @KieroTakoBell I’ve seen them referred to as pressure control solenoids and
line pressure solenoids. If what the “PCC solenoid” you are referring to is
in the throttle body then yes, they are all the same thing.
Kyle Gunner: yes they are.. I found a used valve body and tested the solenoids and they
where all good, I put in the new valve body everthing went fine NO MORE
SLAM SHIFTING yay! ...but now I get a hang in 1st gear it only does it when
you 1st put it into drive takes up to 2500 rpms to grab thinking its
pressure related as it only does it if it has been in park.......any ideas?
robert love: man this is sweet, out of the 6 cars i own one is a sl2 with a shifting
problem, Thank you tspoof for the help and thank you you tube
dodgerman16: What is that thing at 0:23 used for?
jwillwon: can you show the procedure to get your reverse back once it`s gone,
replacing and retorquing that nut under th side cove?
Bob W: Thanks for this video. Just opened mine up and found a bad solenoid (9.5
ohm). Great tip about the cardboard template. couldn't believe how many
different size bolts.
tspoof: The transmission would shutter and slam into gear.
Otis Deal: I ordered 1 yesterday and picked it up today. It was a crazy day today and
I needed this job to go smooth and quick. Thanks a BUNCH for this video! It
saved me a lot of time. I was able (thanks to your video) to change this
part out in 1.5 hrs. I don't have ABS so I didn't need to mess with the
master cylinder or take my tranny mount off. But it wouldn't have gone that
quick without this tutorial. Thanks again. It REALLY helped me out.
melissa wilkison: was that soleanoid that you replaced for the slamming in gear? or is there
a specific solenoid that needs to be changed for that?
Bruce Allen Carlson: Ive got a 2001 Saturn that periodically "bucks" from a stop, any ideas
would be helpful . . . it only happens once in a while and typically when
its driven at slower speeds 45 mph or lower
olseadog: Could you please edit the info of the video and describe what your
transmission was doing and how you diagnosed your problem to be that
KieroTakoBell: hey.. I hope i'm not too late in answering your question, Yes I did replace
the Valve Body, I found it pretty easy to replace BTW, and I did use high
quality Trans Fluid I think I used valvoline, and also a bottle of Trans
from LUCAS, This job was done about a year ago and I havent had any
problems since, Just make sure you do tighten up your trans filter since
its a screw on and mine almost fell a few weeks ago. The valve body was
used and i found it for about 90 bucks. I hope you get it fixed!
lovefuct: Where did you get the Solenoid?
DavidHolmesIII: does replacing this solenoid help the strange hesitation that these
automatics seem to get at higher rpm?
wrlgmail: Very ggod video- nice tip for the placing bolts in cardboard patterned
after the plate. This could also be used when working on laptops or other
devices. Thanks for sharing. BTW- what were your symptoms- missing one gear?
TOPOFFMAN: Would higher than normal line pressure cause a Skippy whining sound.
Especially when making left turns? Is that why you are replacing that
redneckrollercoast1: hi we have a 2002 saturn with around 124,000 on it and it jerks in reverse
and shifts a little hard would it be that solenoid and how mach are they?
fnkycoldmedina: did you just replace the shift timing solenoid?i have a code po789 shift
timing solenoid . or was that the pressure solenoid you done ?
EDownMakesNoise: Man this video saved me a lot of money and time. That job was so simple. My
engine light gave me a incorrect gear ratio problem code and everybody told
me to check the solenoids, but I didn't know how to get to them. Thanks a
lot, I have you suscribed now.
tspoof: @bryn7876 There is more information at saturnfans com Search the S-Series
Tech forum for user=tspoof ; "Transmission Pressure Control Solenoid
replacement (’99 SL1 A/T)" thread.
tspoof: @Gavin64254 I’m not sure about the ‘95’s. If it resets after a power cycle
that tells me it might not be a failed solenoid, but something else. You
can probably take it to a shop and have the problem diagnosed for $100.
unit666industries: flipping tech was going charge me $1300
Iseekoutthetruth: how do you know which solenoid to replace? are they all the same? why not
change all of them at once, since you have everything taken apart?
tspoof: @Drew927 1999 Saturn SL1 automatic
Drazzilba: Monte Carlo's have a different tranny than the Saturn SL1
robert love: well guess what. it took me 2 hours and i do not have a shifting problem
any more. that was easy. boy if dealers charge for a rebuild, there
screwing the American public...... thanks again tspoof
tspoof: @TheRmn822 Check over at saturnfans. com, someone may have the valve layout
Ashley Anderson: What is the diagram for the soleanoids
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof only when i shift to drive sometimes it shifts hard. so wht
solanoid do i have to switch? thank u.
rsvp9146: I'm curious if this is the same tranny used in a 2005 Monte Carlo. I pulled
a P1811 DTC and it's jerking off idle. Replacement looks rather
straightforward, but haven't been able to find anything regarding the Monte
Carlo. Where did you order the solenoid?
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof and can u tell me witch solenoid is for the drive gear?
KieroTakoBell: BTW the solenoids are already in the valve body if im not mistaking....
there is no need to replace them if your getting a new valve body or unless
you get a used one and solenoids dont work.... but I think this should fix
your problem... let me know how it goes, I think I still have my used one
sitting around, Ill look at it and let you know if the solenoids are in
mizer28: How Did you quiet your kids?
RICKY SIKES: I watched your video, got me a solenoid, and in 2 hours I was shifting
gears like new.1999 Saturn SL2 WITHOUT ABS,so much easier.
Infinitrium: Good video. How much more or less difficult is it to remove the entire
valvebody assembly from the tranny? I believe my 96 SL2 has a bad valvebody
(loses all gears but 1st after driving about 1 hour) and I might buy a
rebuilt one from eBay later in the spring.
bryn7876: hey how can i tell which one is the right one.
tspoof: I got mine at the dealership.
vinnie210: I HAVE A 2005 toyota corolla s model and its starting to jerk, the light
came on today, so I took it took a friend's shop and he put the computer on
it. It came back with a pressure control solenoid. How much is the cheapest
to get this done? in san antonio TEXAS
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof i changed the line pressure solenaoid but now it slipps when i gas
pass 30. when tht happens the engine light comes on. so i took it to
autozone and they tested it. i forgot the codes but it said it cant read
the fourth gear, low fluids, or dead tranny. any ideas? i replaced the
solenoid just like you did. SO WHAT GIVES?
ChevyFtWss: Nice video man, might have to do this soon on my saturn !
