93 sable transmission questions
hello again guys ,,well i back working on my sons 1993 sable 3.8 with around 180,000 miles on it ,,tried the seft test code reading and it's a weird prosess but i think we did it right ,,there were 2 codes that point toward a transmission issue with the shift solinoids,,86+62 if we read them right..
well yesterday while he was driving it home from work it would shift only once and seems to be stuck in gear ,,he has a 3 speed tranny in it and he drives it in drive not overdrive ,,we changed the filter and fluid today and it seems ok ..but it still at times does not shift up,,then all of a sudden it will shift and drive and shift fine ,,does this sound like possibly a solinoid problem or possibly something else ,,i always thought that a solinoid would be either good or bad... i didn't think there was a "sometimes"..
i'm guessing the solinoid is behind the inspection pan on the drivers side ..and that looks like a joy to remove..the part doesn't seem to be an expencive part but it looks like it may be tough to get to ,,anything i should try before pulling the cover ? and is there anything to look for or be careful of when changing the solinoid?
thanks in advance
