How to replace solenoids in a4ld?


I have a 92 Aerostar, looks like it has an a4ld transmission. Something inside the tranny is shorting out and blowing the fusible link. I have disconnected the front electrical connector on the tranny and the link no longer blows. Of course, I only have 3 gears. I assume that I need to check the wiring in the tranny for shorts and likely replace the solenoids.

This old van is not worth paying a transmission shop big bucks to replace the solenoids. So, I would like to try it myself.

My questions are:

1) Is this a hard job to do? I have never worked on a tranny before, but, can work my way around most mechanical things.
2) Would someone be able to point me to where I might find some instructions.

I would really appreciate any help I can get on this.

Thanks for putting up with a newbie!
