Comments about ATP Automatic Transmission Control Solenoid:

Borg Warner product. No ATP Electronics name anywhere, only codes. Box was opened, fluid soaked box, unit appeared slightly used. Only one left. Was told I would have to reorder online again to p/u from another store. Cheap rubber gasket kept falling off. Buy a new non-rubber gasket for durability/ quality. Unit seems to work OK.

      Comments about ATP Automatic Transmission Control Solenoid:

      Tips for removal. Remove 2 electrical connectors, the first from a transmission fluid temperature sensor the 2nd from the top of the control solenoid.
      Time saving tip! Remove transmission pan and Change fluid filter at this time. You will need 4 to 5 quarts of trans fluid. You are replacing only about 1/2 of the fluid this way And this allows you to remove the plastic transmission fluid temperature sensor. It must be removed or you will waste time trying to remove the center bolt from the control solenoid. Allow 4 to 6 hours to complete repair. Most all bolts 10mm. FIXED THE LEAKS!!!!

      This unit, incorporates modifications so it may appear different than original installed unit. When matching up new gasket (at store) with removed unit, gasket did not appear to match, (showed P/N to be exact match), took unit home after much hesitation, new gasket matched perfectly with mounting face on tranny(wow). Good tip I followed and used "IndianHead foam a gasket" to mount, works great, No Leaks".

              Lacks documentation for installation. No mention of whether to reinstall noise plate on reinstall. Be careful to torque bolts to proper spec. so you don't strip the threads. Use Indian head shellac on gasket for a better seal. Be sure to clean area before you remove solenoid because grim collects behind solenoid. Easy job for DIY.

              • Q:

                I am getting codes P0700, p1781, p1782. Will replacing this solenoid correct those error codes? I reset the codes and replaced the transmission filter and fluid yesterday and the codes reappeared on my way from were I did that service at. However the filter I bought from advance auto yesterday did not snap tightly into place and had no choice or other way home than hope it stayed in place and put the pan on as quickly as possible and use the 5 new quarts of castrol ATF-4 I also purchased which was a total waste of money, but could you please advise me if I am heading in the right direction with these codes by replacing this solenoid?

                  A:

                  I'm glad to assist, Rich5885! Replacing the automatic transmission solenoid on your 2001 Chrysler Town & Country LX 3.3L V6 Flex-Fuel with this ATP Automatic Transmission Control Solenoid (Part No. TE-6) may or may not correct the transmission fault codes you are receiving. If you are concerned about the fit of the filter I suggest checking the o-ring around the input to the valve body. A repair manual for your vehicle (Haynes Part No. 30011) may provide additional diagnostic assistance and will also contain detailed replacement instructions.

                  For additional diagnostic assistance I suggest consulting with a certified mechanic. Even if the fluid and filter change did not correct the malfunction, it's good for the transmission to receive fresh fluid and a clean filter. The recommended service interval is 48,000 miles. If you are looking for a more cost effective ATF+4, try our CARQUEST Oil & Fluids ATF +4 Automatic Transmission Fluid (Part No. A104).

                  A:

                  The following may be cause for the gear does not shift in your 2000 Dodge Caravan. A clutch disengages the engine from the driven gears in the transmission for shifting. If the drive is not disengaged entirely, the gears will not properly mesh when attempting to shift. Wrong, low or contaminated transmission fluid adversely affect the ability to shift gears. Gears must be turning at the same speed, in order for them to mesh together. In automatic transmission. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

                  A:

                  In a way the problem is to do with a pressure switch being faulty. As the transmission fluid gets old it's viscosity and properties change. It gets grippier and allows for fluctuations in the pressure in the gearbox causing it to alarm. To remove the pressure switch you have to remove other sensors as their wiring harness is all interconnected. By the way it is on the bottom of the gearbox and it in it self is easy to remove. The best thing to do before sending it to an automatic transmission specialist would be to give it an oil change.

                  A:

                  The automatic transmission of your Dodge Neon may begin to make a loud whining or grinding noise. You will need to perform a few troubleshooting steps to correct it. A central processing unit known as the powertrain control module, or PCM, supports the automatic transmission system of your Dodge Neon, acting as a part of your the Onboard Diagnostic System. It will alert you when there is a problem; look for the indicator light to flash on when your transmission malfunctions. Performing the recommended maintenance steps will help ensure your transmission operates properly. Check the level of the transmission fluid by using the dipstick. Be sure that the transmission fluid reservoir is at least half full. Also, check the condition of the transmission filter. Change if needed. Cover the brake and start the ignition while leaving the gear in "Park." Allow car to idle before taking a short drive on the highway. If you were not allowed to move gear from "Park," then you will need to ask a mechanic to check your gear selector cable and brake lock solenoid. Maintain a steady speed while on the highway. Stay in the right lane. If you notice that the gear slips or fades in and out while operating your Neon at a steady speed, then you will need to check that the friction material on the transmission clutch discs have not worn out. Replace discs if needed. Make a turn to exit the highway. If you hear noises or the transmission is not shifting out of the first gear, then you will need to replace the fuses of the PCM, vehicle speed sensor, or second gear control solenoid. Allow car to idle, making sure the gear is left in "Park." Check the pan underneath the car for leaks. If you find a leak, you will need to ask a mechanic to repair the driveshaft seal, input shaft seal, and pan gasket.
