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 ?
1320freek: 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.
tspoof: I got mine at the dealership.
1320freek: Sorry about that other post, i hit the wrong button before i was done with the message. Anyway, i was saying I can't find anywhere to buy the solenoid! Can you please tell me where you bought one? Thank you!
tspoof: This is for an automatic transmission.
tspoof: The transmission would shutter and slam into gear.
rYAN dAVIDSON: What were the symptoms you were experiencing with the bad solenoid?
rodrigo juarez: is this for a stick shift saturn?? i have a 93.
Teri Sarris: Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and posting this video. It explains everything perfectly! TS
balistic1er: i have an 96 saturn and it shuts off when you press the throttle to speed up, is this the cause, please hlep
sandieguitoadult: 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 specific solenoid?
lovefuct: Ballpark figure from dealership......?
lovefuct: Where did you get the Solenoid?
redwolf4k: I am experiencing intermediate hard shifting and 10 seconds of the shakes after the hard shift on an 02 saturn SL2, is this the fix? Thanks!

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.
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
kyle guenther: 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?
kyle guenther: yes I agree!
kyle guenther: 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?
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.
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 there.
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!
kyle guenther: Im having some slam issues with my 01 Saturn just was wondering if you got your issues resolved? if so was it the solenoids? or valve body?
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?
Randal Lieungh: I have a 99 Saturn SL1 (automatic) and it seems to be start in 2nd gear. Is this a solinoid problem? And how did you determine to change soliniod #1 in your video?
tspoof: 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.
Gavin Bullard: i have a 95 sl1 dose it have these solenoids? and would thay cause it to hang in fist gear at times...but i can turn the car off and back on and it will go normal do thank this is my problem please respond thank you
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?
dodgerman16: What is that thing at 0:23 used for?
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?
Ashley Anderson: What is the diagram for the soleanoids
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 wires?
tspoof: I'm not sure I can be of much help there. If the screw is stripped it should just be a matter of pulling the old one out and replacing it. With the screw out, the electrical connector should come right out.
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?
Omar Chisolm: did u take both nuts off the tranny mount or jus the one closetest to the valve body, and i wanna change solanoid for the (D). can u tell me which one is it?
jwillwon: can you show the procedure to get your reverse back once it`s gone, replacing and retorquing that nut under th side cove?
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof and can u tell me witch solenoid is for the drive gear?
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof where are the shifter cables on this car? i have the same car but would like to replace them. THANKS.
Omar Chisolm: @tspoof only when i shift to drive sometimes it shifts hard. so wht solanoid do i have to switch? thank u.
Ty Chan: I have a 2001 Saturn SL1. It has the classic "reverse slam", BUT it also slams into each gear. I also hear a "whirling" noise when I slow down to stop. Will replacing the PCS solve my problem?
you have it easy haha mine on the same side but on the side but i dont know yet
i have to do it from the side
but yeah your have it easy haha
TOPOFFMAN: Would higher than normal line pressure cause a Skippy whining sound. Especially when making left turns? Is that why you are replacing that solenoid?
MrBlackivy: hey i have a 1992 saturn sc2 my transmission shift fine intell it down shift from 4 to 3rd gear and then it down shift from 3rd to 2nd and i wont shift no more when it stuck in 2nd the check engine lights comes on and on the other side of the dash it say shift to 2nd what to you think the problem is?
Armoredlamb: Thanks!! No way im gonna pay some mech to do that.
unit666industries: flipping tech was going charge me $1300
FiremanCV: Thank you for posting this video :)
After watching this video, I got inspired to make videos for others.
There are hardly any good Saturn resources on U-Tube at all.
So, I am doing my part & will make more, All thanks to this video...
If you wish to go more in depth on testing solenoids or removing the valve body, do a search for "Firemancv"
97saturnbaha: replaced my valve body and my tranns still dont shift. do I need to relearn (manual shift) until computer learns new valve? what solenoid is the pressure valve? how do i know?
KieroTakoBell: Thnx!!!! Ill search it!
