mathew garza: I have an impala LS 2003 and mines having similar problems about the tranny, when I start off from a stop it has a hard shift but only when gas is being pushed so far but when taking off very slowly shifts a lil fine, also when going up hills on highways and any other place such as hills, it will feel like it has lack of power and rpm needle moves back and forth very little also when pulling into a free way and kinda giving enough gas to drive into a ramp engine light will then blink but only at high way speeds (odometer has 236k miles on dash) any info of help is very welcome please!!
Victor Simpkins: how long did it takes to you to fix
DaChiefn1: I have a lengthy question.. i done this job for the first time (actually my 4th time now).. i replaced the tcc solenoid (which was the code given) while doing this i removed the fluid pump which i broke and ended up replacing. i replaced both shift solenoids the pressure control solenoid and the fluid pressure manifold.. after it was all said and done the car will not shift all codes went away though.. some of my mistakes i think besides the pump was i used the transmission pan to hold up the engine and i broke 2 clips on the pressure solenoid and tcc solenoid.. they just snapped off the plugs seem to seat in there fine though... WHY WONT IT SHIFT? the shifter goes into all the gears but it wont kick in like its stuck in neutral.. also theres a rattle that wasnt present before coming from the transmission... i was just having a minor shift issue I should've left it.. im at a loss.. i replac ed some parts twice trying to figure it out... HELP
CHRIS NOLAN: I just want to say thank you very much for this detailed video I'm a mechanic but have always been skeptical dropping sub frames I just did this on my 2005 Buick Century with only 100k and also installed the TransGo shift improved kit wow what a difference!! Thank you once again you could have sold this video lol
Michael Bartels: Question for everyone have a 4t65e in a Volvo XC90 no first gear tries but nothing there, reverse works great. Pulled the pan off and looks like the forward band is not broken tab still there and can compress with my fingers through inspection hole. Removed both 1-2 and 3-4 shift solenoids and when power applied they both click. Any suggestions would be great before a full rebuild transmission is still in the car cover is removed.
ANTHONY THOMPSON: Great videos your have and very thorough! I have a 99 Buick regal thats Supercharged. Its taking a lil more time to shift between 1 & 2 and it jerks from time to time. So I changed the fluid and filter first, and its still doing it. Could it be that I would need to change the PCS and TCC solenoids that would remedy this problem? I'm going to attempt to do this and play the videos as I do this!
Dan Kingsley: I plan to replace my solenoids on my 2003 Monte carlo SS. I have the right solenoid set, i have the transgo shift kit, and a new filter as well as gasket. Can you give me some insight as to how to lower the cradle to access the side cover of the transmission? I'm a novist DIY mechanic and would like suggestions and tips to make the job seem more feasable
FirebirdA18: Hi m ph, My girlfriend's grand prix has had issues shifting lately. then last night it wouldn't shift out of first gear. I was already going to replace the PCS this weekend when it was just shifting late and jerking. Would a bad PCS cause it to not be able to shift out of first?
nelsonfan24: Hello, please help. I had my transmission rebuilt about 2 years ago. I have a 1999 Buick Regal V6-3.8L. The car ran fine for a short time then started to jerk while it was trying to shift gears. The check engine light would came on. I was to afraid to drive it again. For about 8 months it sat without driving. Then I had to try to drive it again. Things were fine for awhile then it would jerk again and the CEL would come on. After, letting the car sit and cool it would drive fine. Then a few months later it would do it again. Usually in warmer weather and when I made several short stops and shut off the engine. I finally made it to get a code readout before the CEL went off. It has codes p0742 and p1811. It runs fine with no problems and then all the sudden after weeks it will act up. What do you think I need to have done and a rough estimate of cost? Thank you for your help.
TF R: I just got a 2003 Century that rolls backwards on an incline in drive and shifts hard occasionally at rolling stops. Your vids look very similar to the engine/trans that I'm dealing with - what I read is likely a PCS. I was hoping to put off repairing for a while but in another response you mentioned it burning up clutches - should I get cracking on this?
It will also roll 5-6 inches on an incline in park. Would the Transgo shift kit help with any of my issues or is it a good idea generally? Thanks
Renals Homlmes: Thoughts? I blew my engine so I want to fix my trans at the same time since it will be easiest now. Problem is I don't remember if trans slipped 1-2, 2-3. It was slow to shift and revved while shifted for sure 1-2. I don't remember if it shifted bad 2-3 also. It was like it took 3 seconds to shift. Revs climbed during acceleration and did not shift as soon as it should, then shifted into gear. Don't remember if it banged into gear or slid in. Almost think it would be better to put her back together and see what problem really is then proceed from there. Hate to dump $ into a bad trans. Car has 170k but they were hard mills I am guessing by thrown rod and rest of the car condition.
territodude: Hi, was just wondering if you have seen the pcs or tcc solenoid cause the transmission to slip in all gears? Mine was logging shift delay 1-2 and tcc errors but then after the last time it did this all gears will engage for a few feet then total slippage. If I turn the engine off and wait a while. I can get all gears to engage one time , second time thru they all slip, follows that pattern. SES light went out after the last limp mode episode that day earlier and doesn't come back on now with this solid pattern. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
Chris Taylor: How many hours would you say this would take?
financeranger: Any issues with another brand of parts (Duralast from Autozone)? They sell a PCS solenoid with a lifetime warr ($70). Both shift solenoids r $20 ea. I For now only symptom my car has is slipping (from dead stop) and and slip from 2-3 and 3-2.
centagg520: Thank you very much for this series on replacing the solenoids in this trans. Very well done. Because of your, EXCELLENT videos, and narrative, I was able to do this myself in the garage with a floor jack, pretty much like you did. I am just a backyard mechanic, took several hours over a few days. Had P0742 TCC solenoid, but replaced both shift sols, TCC sol (had to remove pump) EPC sol, and pressure switches assembly. Car has been running perfect now (2 wks) smooth shifts, no codes. Thanks, I could not have done this without your help!...(2000 Grand Prix)
Eric Gray: Great videos! I dove right in a pulled the side cover w minimal problems! 02 Impala 120k. Changed both shift solenoids and PCS. This did not take care of my problem which is long shifts between 1-2 with over revving like the car isn't in gear at all. Sometimes it shifts just fine sometimes it does not. Car always makes a whining noise while in gear BUT not while in park or neutral.....what should I do next?
Mark Gosnell: m ph thanks for time and effort,very cool
