i would go ahead and just replace the gear box why i say this is because replacing the solenoid is going to cost you just as much cause the transmission still has to be opened up so your still going to be paying for a lot of labor
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So where would I go for a second hand gear box?
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 1 year ago.
