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.

Where is the Shift A solenoid on Chevy Z71 1997?

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).
