Greetings Sir or Madam and welcome to JA! I will do my very best to assist you with your problem.
HI there!
It is as simple as it sounds. Just remove the pan and the shift solenoids are bolted to the valve body. Disconnect the harness and unbolt the solenoid. Valve body removal is not required.,
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
Here is a diagram. It isn't showing what one is the E solenoid specifically.

thanks for your response, is there any way i can specifically determine which is solenoid E?
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
Do you have a code possibly? I might be able to get to it using the code.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Two codes came up upon scanning in the history - P1799 interlock; and then P0771 shift solenoid e malfunction

 

 

Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
Got it!

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

thank you so much. Do you think the interlock error code may have also been caused by the same shift solenoid problem?

 

 

Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
I think it is quite possible, I am not finding the code so I can't be sure however to be honest.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no problem - thank you for your swift responses.

 

i love you man - not in a homosexual way, more like when one of those rappers says it to his "crew" :)

Hi there.

Upon removing the pan on the transmission, the diagram you provided was incorrect and for a completely different configuration. It appears the solenoids are on the other side of the valve body and thus valve body requires removal.

The box is a 5 speed automatic code tg5c7cwaaa-y3.

Also the auto transmission place has advised that the solenoids as per part numbers are not listed in alphabetical but rather numeric. Ie solenoid e will need to be solenoid 1, 2, 3 etc. There are six possible variants and thus using the code above are u please able to provide a clearer description of which is solenoid e.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
Is the filter internal or a spin on external that looks like an oil filter on this?
This should be a phase 2 4EAT transmission on this car.
Let me know!
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I will have to verify tomorrow morning. However please note that this is a five speed auto not four speed as per my initial question.

Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
I will most definitely see what I can come up with for you. I will do some digging for sure!
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
Ok, I am still working on this for you. It looks like however they want to replace the whole valve body for this one solenoid. I will keep looking to see if I can figure out which one it is.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok. I checked and the filter is internal.

Hope this helps.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
So far I am coming up with a blank.
I am showing the whole valve body must be replaced.
I do have one more iron in the fire checking for me and I will let you know.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 3 years ago.
Ok, I have located a good diagram. Solenoid E is the lockup solenoid.
Good luck!
