Is your fluid brown instead of red? and does it smell burnt? If so, you probabily need a new 3-4 clutch pack. I had the same problem with the same tranny (also 4WD), after replacing these clutches on 5/30/05 the problem was solved.

Why would a car solenoid leak oil?

A solenoid is a component that controls a great many different things on a car.If you have one inside the transmission leaking, this one is supposed to seal or release a system in side the transmission and the seal portion can go bad.If we are talking about the starter solenoid, it has no oil to leak. If it looks like it is then we have 1 of two problems.The solenoid has gotten much to hot and the insulation inside has melted, separated and dripped out.There is something above it leaking and dripping on it.

It is located above the pan in the transmission. There are two identical solenoids located beside one another, Solenoid A and Solenoid B, and if I remember correctly from when I changed mine out it is located toward the front of the transmission. They are small, rectangle shaped and are both held in with clips. I didn't know which was which, so I just replaced them both while I was at it. They run around $20 apiece at your local auto parts store.

What would cause a 1991 Buick Century to die but start right back up only to die when you put it back in gear and after sitting will run normal?

This condition sounds like the transmission locking solenoid is bad. Condition is similar to having a frozen clutch except this is an automatic. To test, unplug the the wire connector to the solenoid on the transmission. If the problem clears up, then the solenoid is bad and not the tranny. You can drive it with the solenoid unpluged with only a minor impact to fuel economy at higher speeds (above 40 mph).

Where is the location of the transmission linear solenoid assembly for Honda CR-V?

The transmission linear solenoid assembly for the 2000 Honda CR-V is under the car/SUV. It is near the front wheel on the passenger side.1. Crouch down in the front of the 2000 Honda CR-V until you're near the ground level. Now look at the passenger front tire facing you. Next, look across in a direct line until your eyesight intersects the engine area. You should be able to see the A/B solenoid (which is under a metal housing cap) and the linear solenoid is slightly to the right (when looking at it from the front of the car) and above the metal housing cap.2. One more thing, as a reminder, the A/B solenoid leaks transmission fluid when you remove it. However, the linear solenoid does not leak any fluid at all when removed.

Where can you find a diagram of a 4L60E transmission?

I don't know of any online. Even most service manuals don't deal with the transmission. A service manual form a dealership specially for that style of tranmission MIGHT be bought at a dealer, but your looking at $150 EASILY, and that's if they will sell them to the general public. What is wrong with the tranny? Most problems not fixed by fixing the vacuum accumulator, downshift cable and fluid and filter change, is not readily serviceable. (In correction to the above statement. There is no vacuum modulator or tv cable on the 4l60e. you can also find an atsg 4l60e manual all over the internet, ebay and parts stores for about 30 bucks.it can also be downloaded instantly in pdf form from atsg.com As well as other publications. The atsg Is the most widely used by rebuild techs. And the fluid and filter is easily done in the 4l60e. ) Depending on what diagram you are looking for, as there are many. You will be able to find many answers to the 4l60e at helpwrench.com or search Google.com for [ 4l60e rebuild pictures ] Or { twistedwrench 4l60e } great write up on it. If you actually need the manual, it would be in the "Factory Repair Manual", you may find parts of it or tips on the internet. But, if you actually need the manual,;"AutomotiveRepairManuals.biz", is the best source I know of. I have bought many manuals from them , & have been 100% satisfied.
