    Red face Shift Solenoid A code - cost??

    I took my 99 TA to AutoZone and they checked my car since the Service Engine Soon light came on. I had noticed a problem in the way the car shifted gears the day before. My car is automatic by the way.

    AutoZone code P0753 Shift Solenoid A problem.

    How much am I looking at spending $$$$ if I take it to the dealership or a Transmission shop.

    Where are the solenoid located? Do they actually have to take the Transmission apart?

    Thanks.

    I dunno if its the same prob or not but i had a truck with a similar problem and continued to drive it bc it was under warranty and it just went away after about a week. On my truck the solenoid was internal.
    Call a few shops in your area and ask them some questions would be your best bet.

    Looks like you might be able to just pull the pan.

    yes, you drop the pan. there will be two solenoids on the rear of the valvebody that look the same. look at the pic in the above post. solenoid "A" is the one on the passenger side of the two. disconnect the wire harness from it. then take a pick or real small screwdriver and release the retainer that holds it in the valvebody. pull out the solenoid. replace with new one. you can try and take brake cleaner and flush the solenoid out. usually, it's just trash in it.
