94 4runner solenoid problems
I've read on here about other people's problems too, but I'm thinking of doing the replacement myself and need some help.
Symptoms: From dead stop care barely moves, I have to put it up to about 2500 RPMs just to get going. (Guessing I'm starting in 3rd gear or something). The OD Off light is blinking of course. I drove the car from Denver to Greeley for 45 minutes without a single issue, started it up the next time and it hardly moves in drive. I can use my auto trans as a manual and start it in low then it accelerates fine.
Solutions?: I've heard it's the shift solenoid on the valve body. Does anyone know how hard this is to replace? I know I need to drain the fluid and drop the pan, but is there a lot else to do? I worked on cars for 4 years in high school so I know the basics. Just trying to see if it will be dangerous to do it myself.
Any information you have would be awesome. Thanks.
