Yeah I scanned it and nothing about the solenoids came up. I do notice that when I put it in gear it doesn't click or shift or give any type of sign that it is engaging a gear. It's just quiet. Do you think it might be the trans or the torque converter?

I think I mentioned this before, I replaced the speed sensor on the rear of the trans. If I put the car in gear and rev the motor to 5000 rpms the cel comes on and it is p0500, which is the vehicle speed sensor.

I'm starting to think I might have to just replace my entire transmission at this point.

So car starts fine? idles fine, you can push on the brake and then move the gear selecter into R N and D 321 and it still acts like its in park?? rev and no clunking or grinding or anything?

to me this sounds more electronic or sensor than something mechanical IMO

It revs fine and idles fine, when I put it in gear it acts like it's in neutral.

Sounds to me its a solenoid. no sure if your familiar with mechanical stuff but you can take test each solenoid individual to see wich one is clicking and wich one is not.

If you'd be willing to give me a quick tutorial on how to test the solenoids that would be awesome

Thhe solenoids should read 11-15 ohms @68*F. One side of the coil is grounded so the solenoids (S1-S3, SLU, SLD) are fed with one wire. There is a whole bank of codes for the automatic transmission and you should really download the diagnostic manual and FSM from the stickies (threads in blue) in the Gen. Disc. forum. Here is also a book just on our transmission that may also help.

I have all the fsm and diagnostic pdfs as well as alldata. The reason I am so confused is because I don't have any codes on my scanner that refer to my valve body. Given it is possible that my scanner is unable to read issues with my valve body solenoids.

So I tested the ecu connections that go to the ecu. In the diagram its connection 5. All the voltage checks out and is what it should be. Any ideas what I should check next.

It almost sounds like the torque converter is not locking up mechanically. So the only code that was active was P0500, have you checked the speed sensor to verify it's OK and seated tight? The diagnostic troubleshooting starts on page #471 for P0500.

Yeah I checked the sensor and even replaced it just to be sure. It's fine.

So you think it might be the torque converter then?
