Customer Question
Low accelleration and the...

Low accelleration and the code reader gave us a transmission solenoid error.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

The vehicle is a 2000 GMC Jimmy. No, we haven't checked the fueld filters.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Jimmy yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, fixing it ourself. We haven't tried anything yet. The code says that solenoid B is failing.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

What I am really interested in is how difficult is it to change the solenoid B?
