When one part fails, however, the entire system will be affected and you'll be left without reliable shifting performance from your car. For example, if the Automatic Transmission Solenoid stops functioning, then the system won't be able to regulate the flow of your automatic transmission fluid.

How to Replace a Damaged Automatic Transmission Solenoid

Are you experiencing gear shifting problems? If your answer is yes, then you should check your car's automatic transmission solenoid. This part is very important because it is responsible for activating and deactivating the shifting gear. If it gets damaged, it will be difficult to reverse, downshift, and accelerate. Thus, it has to be replaced immediately. Fortunately, repairing a damaged transmission solenoid is easy. This guide will teach you how you can do this simple repair at home and with the help of a few tools.

Difficulty level: Moderate

What you'll need:

  • Replacement automatic transmission solenoid
  • Wrench set
  • Socket set

Safety tips:

  • Always work in a well-ventilated area so you won't lose important parts and tools.
  • Don't forget to wear your protective gloves and goggles to avoid accidents.

Step 1: Park your car somewhere level. Then, open the hood.

Step 2: Locate your car's battery. Once you found it, disconnect the black battery cable using your wrench.

Step 3: Find the automatic transmission solenoid. Usually, this part is installed on the passenger side's inner wheel well. If you can't find it, refer to your car owner's manual.

Step 4: Using your socket set, loosen the bolts of the solenoid. Then, set the damaged part aside.

Step 5: Install the replacement solenoid. Make sure that it's attached exactly the same as the previous one was installed. Then, screw the bolts tightly to secure the new transmission solenoid.

Step 6: With your screwdriver, disconnect the wires of the old solenoid one at a time. Afterwards, connect these wires to the replacement solenoid.

Step 7: Connect the battery cable that you disconnected earlier. Then, close the hood. Once everything is set, test drive your vehicle for a few miles to make sure that the transmission solenoid is working properly.
