A bad transmission solenoid will cause hard shifting and can eventually damage the unit. You should change the solenoid if it is bad.
no you must take driveshaft loose and tie it up. but do not remove or you will loose all trans fluid. if driveshaft not unhooked trams damage will happen
The 1997 Cavalier has two motor mounts, as well as a transmission mount. If the mounts are broken the motor can move around and cause damage to components under the hood.
your torque converter solenoid is located in the valve body of the transmission. you have to drop the pan on the tranny but you really better know what your doing or you can do alot of damage
You will get lower gas mileage. The tcc solenoid locks up the transmission to get better gas mileage at higher speeds. I suppose it will wear the transmission slightly faster as well, but the main effect is lower gas mileage.
There could be an internal problem with the transmission. Check the transmission fluid for a burnt smell or odd color, indicating transmission damage.
YOu probably won't notice any symptoms, which is why it triggers the check engine light. This solenoid acts to slow down your torgue converter when you deccelerate from high speeds to a stop, such as when you exit the highway. Failure of this curcuit COULD potentially damage your transmission which is why you need to know about it. The solenoid is attached to the valve body inside your transmission.
Shift solenoids are located on the rear of the valve body inside the transmission oil pan.If you are not careful removing the pan you can damage them.
Yes, it can.
Possible transmission damage due to the overheating.Possible transmission damage due to the overheating.
No a bad convrter can not damage your transmission however it will make your vehicale run rough
For a Cavalier, you have to turn her on for a few minutes to warm up the fluid. Then use the dip-stick on the transmission fluid input. May I add that it takes 10 miles of driving to get the transmission up to operating temperture. Check the fluid level accordint to instructions in the owners manual. Sometimes this is hot in park, cold in park, depends on the vehicle. Make sure the vehicle is sitting on a level surface. Do not overfill as this can damage seals.
