I am sorry for the long wait

which solenoid do you need to change ?

how far apart do you have this transmission ? is the side cover off ?

may i ask why you need to change a shift solenoid ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
solenoid 2-3
I haven't started to do anything just yet.
After getting a diagnosis from Autozone it gave me several items such as
P0757, P0303, and P0700
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

the 303 is for a misfire on the # ***** cylinder

the 700 is a generic code saying there is a transmission code set

the 757 is for the 2-3 shift solenoid ( which you already knew )

to change the shift solenoid the transmissions side cover needs to come off which involves supporting the engine and removing the steering shaft to the power steering gear/rack and lowering the drivers side sub frame down and then tilting the drivers side of the transmission enough to get the side cover off

this is @ a 5 hour job to do and the 2-3 shift solenoid is # ***** in this picture the lower # ***** in the picture as the upper # ***** is the 1-2 shift solenoid
