Transmission selonoid location and question.
Alright, if I start my car on a cold start I can drive it around for about five minutes. Shifts fine and all. Then all of sudden it just revs in place, no matter if I am in 1,2,3,4 and reverse. I cleaned out one of the solenoids which I believe is called the lock up solenoid. Its facing the front of the transmission towards the bottom. Its two solenoids together. That really didn't solve my case. So I did more research and I read up that one of the solenoids is most def causing my problems and symptoms. My question is, is this is the solenoid on the passenger side kinda under the battery? It looks just like the lock up solenoid but has to different color wires running to it. What is that solenoid called and is there an easy way to access it?
The most recent thing I did is change the thermostat. When I replaced it I didn't get the gasket aligned to well and it leaks a little but I don't over heat at all. Could this be stopping my tranny from going if the ECU thinks the thermostat isn't working correctly?
I really hope someone can help out. Thanks!
