Usually P1783 solenoid code is caused by transmission slippage during the 3/4 shift. Does the fluid smell burnt or is it just dark?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The oil doesn't smell burnt-it smell still as x-mission fluid.The code reader is saying this code is for over-temperature. You are saying is solenoid code. Kenny my name is***** paid $5.00 for an answer. I haven't get a complete answer and now somebody wants another $26.00.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Would you like me to try and help?

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 2 months ago.

Based on your fluid color that is not that old this slippage issue is going to require an overhaul to address.

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out/completed.
  • It appears you were not pleased with my help.
  • If more assistance is needed, reply and let me know, also let me know what it is you're needing to be pleased.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I never know it.)
  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
