Transmission Solenoid problem is a common vehicle problem that happens to most car brands and models. The following is a sample list of Transmission Solenoid problems reported in most popular vehicles.
The vehicle involved is a 2005 Chevrolet Corvette. The VIN of the problem Corvette is 1G1YY34U15_. 2005 Corvette with automatic transmission. Shifter gets stuck in park and cannot be released. Has happened multiple times. Can only be released by following a series of steps as outlined in manual. Believe the cause is due to a defective solenoid in shifter control unit. Looking at different websites this seems to be a problem with many Corvette owners. This transmission solenoid issue occurred April 2, 2012.

The car involved was a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The vehicle failed to shift into park. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the technician diagnosed that there was a broken wire in the btsi solenoid terminal which needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired by re wiring the ground wire to the shifter where the pin had broken. On may 3rd the key got stuck in the ignition and would not come out. Let the car sit for 24 hours the battery died and the key released out of the ignition. Took the car to the dealership on may 5, 2014 and the shifter wires were re constructed. Car still acts as if the shifter is not going to shift. This problem occurred on Monday, April 7, 2014.

The car involved was a 2005 Chrysler 300. On July 17,2012 I drove my vehicle at approximately 6:30 a. M to take my daughter to camp. When I arrived home I parked the car. Approximately 40 minutes later I got into the car, started it, and placed my foot on the brake to release my gear from the park position. As I did that, the gear would not move. I tried this approximately 5 to 10 times before giving up. I then contacted the Chrysler dealer in new carrolton, MD and inquired about the part. I was informed that I have a recall on my vehicle in regards to NHTSA campaign id number 05v460000 (power train:automatic transmission). After being informed of that information, I then proceeded to ask the rep. Will that recall fix my gear from being stuck in the park position. I was placed on hold and when the rep. Returned, she informed me that the mechanic said no. I made an appointment to have the recall work performed at a later time. I then called around to different mechanics and inquired about what the issue might be. I received feedback from at least 3 out of 5 mechanics who stated that it may be the brake sensor fuse being blown or it may be a solenoid that needs to be replaced. Later on that evening I went to try and move the gear again and was unable to, so I removed the chrome panel that is around gear assembly and stuck a flat head screw driver towards the top and played around with it. As I was doing so, the gear shift moved from the park position. So now I have to ride around with a screw driver in order to get out of the park position. I feel this is a major safety concern because I have 2 young children and we could've been stranded somewhere. The failure mileage was approximately 102,600. Will be getting repaired Friday July 20,2012. Chrysler should be covering this issue. The failure date was Tuesday, Jul. 17, 2012.

I bought a 1999 Dodge Durango slt 5. 2 ltr engine as of 3 to 4 yrs ago, and in some cases like mine, it absolutely does mean it can be an absolutely unreliable & absolute dangerous vehicle!!!!! . . Everything that can happen, has happened to this vehicle. Engine stalls out, the front differential exploded on the highway 4 miles after I had to put in 4 wheel drive & almost caused me to wreck,I had to replace the whole front differential axles. . The back (rear) breaks have never worked since I bought the thing, the exhaust manifolds got so hot that the bolts that connect it to the manifold pipes burned off and is now, and has been sitting for a month since I can't keep it together. Right now all three of my front brake lines have rotted into, at the connector from the master cylinder that sends the fluid to the front 2 wheels!!. . That's just the start of all of the terrible danger that it poses to me and other drivers on the road. This vehicle should be considered a complete recall of the 1999 Dodge Durango slt. The Dodge manufacture should not get by with this. Its almost like selling a device to get hurt in. I paid over 4,000. 00 for this Durango, just to spend that much more money and the chance of getting hurt or worse while having it rebuilt where it is suppose to be safe. . . . . Other things that have stopped working also. . Motor oil & transmission leaks & slips, windows (2 of them) have stopped working up & down, glove box latch broke, ash tray broke off, rear hatch will not open, hatch wiper shorted out, front end tires spraddle out like they are going 2 different directions, the paint finish has completely faded from the hood & starting in other places, starter solenoid clicks 10 to 30 times before it will crank the engine. . . There is more also!. . This is not a safe vehicle!! I have never had trouble like this with any other automobile in all of my 45 driving years. This transmission solenoid issue occurred Tuesday, August 17, 2010.

2007 GMC Acadia with 108,000 miles. Check engine light appeared and the transmission went into safe mode and would not shift out of 2nd gear. Code generated was the "shift solenoid stuck open". Transmission shop stated that the transmission will totally fail soon and needed to be rebuild at a cost of $4500. The transmission guy said that I was lucky to get over 100,000 miles because they usually fail between 80-90,000 miles. He stated it was a horrible design for a transmission and inadequate parts were used inside. Not an uncommon problem for this vehicle. Researching all of the complaints, there should be a recall. Gm's attitude is that the warranty is up and it's your problem, so you must pay for our design flaws. It was Tuesday, March 25, 2014 when this transmission solenoid issue happened.

The vehicle involved was a 2002 Acura Mdx. Driving back home from las vegas, nv about 150 miles away (utah) the a/t light light came on. Looked it up online it stated auto/transmission oil temp is high. Decided to pull over and let it cool down at the nearest gas station. Decided it was ok since the temp in utah went down this was around 2 pm. About 10 min later when we got back onto highway the a/t light came on again. Then the car started to smoke from the engine bay. We pulled over took a look at it realized no puncture to the lines and figured the pressure build up from tranny spat out from where you usually pour fluids in. We tried getting off hwy for safety and ended up middle on no where. Then we waited til 5 pm and as the weather cooled down we started the drive again. The engine was fine the transmission wouldnt let me push it pass 3 1/2 rpm so we drove about 50-70 mph. We reached colorado then spent the night. The next day it started to snow, the transmission decided to stop responding it will go into gears but it will stall and go but it wouldnt let me go past 2 rpm. Check egine light came on then we decided to take the car to autozone. The O2 test stated: low tranny oil, torque control solenoid sensor, and electrical sensor. Then we had the car tow to nearby transmission shop they ran some diagnostics and said the gears are slipping and the whole transmission needs to be rebuilt. Total cost in rebuilt 4100. 00 out the door. Car in on 3/4/13 car was done on 3/19/13. This issue happened on 03/03/13.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Honda Odyssey. The VIN of this vehicle is 5FNRL18924_. 5/6/14 took my vehicle into the local service station for diagnosis of clunking engine noise. Had to pay $1400 to replace both motor mounts that were completely worn out . Also has to replace the outer tie rods that were worn out creating a completely unsafe vehicle. Less than a week later, the d light went black. Suddenly it came back on along with the check engine light. Took vehicle back to the service station and they now diagnosed it with the p0740 code tcc lockup solenoid. Called several transmission shops that told me the only way to fix this is to get a new transmission at a cost of $3500 and up. This is very discerning that the transmission didn't last longer and this is a known problem with this model vehicle and Honda refuses to issue the recall on all 2004 transmissions. There are service bulletins out there referring to this specific issue. I called american Honda and they refused to assist stating the vehicle is way out of warranty to assist financially. I have had all the service done at the dealer until there was an issue last year with the heating/air conditioner that the dealer was unable to successfully fix after 6 visits and numerous coolant flushes. I have no faith in that local dealership to help. Now I'm stuck with a money pit and can't afford to replace it. Never again Honda. They have certainly lost my loyalty after all this. We dealt with the same issue with the 2003 Acura tls transmissions that were bad, 3 transmissions later and no help from Honda who knowingly covered up their faulty transmission problems and left consumers footing the bill. It was Monday, May 12, 2014 when this transmission solenoid issue happened.

The car is a 2003 Honda Accord. We driving on 35w -south at around 60 miles an hour and the vehicle turned itself to 1st gear. Had to pull over to shoulder and called aaa. Was told that solenoid to be replaced. After the replacement, car was ok and again, after few miles, has a similar incident on 494, where the gear shifted back to a lower gear at 60 miles an hour and missed a fully loaded walmart truck by inches! I had to spend 1800$ to get the transmission fixed. This problem occurred on Apr. 15, 2013.

The vehicle was a 2010 Hyundai Sonata. The VIN of the problem Sonata is 5NPET4AC2A_. When vehicle is cold and I decelerate down thru 20 mph, the transmission down shifts abruptly causing a jerking motion. I have been told by an auto mechanic who researched it that there was an actual recall by Hyundai for this issue. He said the problem was that Hyundai installed computer control equipment from an older model in their 2010 Sonatas and this resulted in a failure in proper communication between the computer and the automatic transmission's solenoid, causing the abrupt down shifting at 20 mph when car is cold. One last note: when this first started occurring, it would cause the "fix engine" light to come on, but this has not happened for about the last three weeks. The abrupt down shifting when cold still occurs consistently, always right around 20 mph. This transmission solenoid issue occurred Monday, Feb. 3, 2014.

The car involved was a 2010 Hyundai Tucson. The VIN of this vehicle was KM8JU3AC8A_. For awhile noticed occasional but unusual increase in rpm's. Didn't think much of it until incident on highway when car made a loud noise, and lurched forward as if we hit something. Immediately pulled off road, and didn't notice any damage. Took car to dealer when they "reset" something and said the car was good. Problems with rpm's have continued, and took car to dealership 4 more times with identical faults. At one point they replaced a solenoid, which appeared to fix it for about 2 weeks. Were told they can not duplicate the faults, car is fine, and there is nothing they can do. They said the transmission learns your patterns and something might have gotten confused. I'm extremely frustrated with this. It's clearly a safety hazard, that will only continue to get worse. It's my wife's primary vehicle and I fear for her safety. Have read online, and we are not the only 2010 Hyundai Tucson owners that are experiencing these problems. This transmission solenoid issue occurred Oct. 3, 2011.

The vehicle involved was a 2000 Infiniti I30. >2/14/04 purchased 2000 inifinity I30 sedan from autobroker;
> 11/10/ vehicle at 67,950 odometer; taken first time to passport inifiniti/alexandria to check lazy/sleepy shifting (1st to 2nd gear and 2nd to 3rd gears) prob; driven 7 mi by tech; reported "no problem"/ no scanner used no major test; service writer noted "checked by outside shop" on ticket - as a warning?
>6/10/05; vehicle at 71,720 mi odometer; problem more apparent; taken to rosenthal inifiniti; now out of warranty the cost is $2291 to fix inifiniti offers $650 toward total repair "solenoid valve assemply body/a/trans
>6/16/05 returned to 1st dealership with "known service bulletin" and asked why when covered under warranty they didn't fix it; now I am expected to pay $2291 to repair a known problem with vehicles made before 2000 (my car made 11/99)?
good will regional service mgr. Offered only the $650; that it was my fault not having been the original owner who brought it in regularly for service with a dealership and that outside shop recommendation was a "kiss of death" for any dealership. Do they not stand by their service bulletins? it was a known problem they didn't check it when car was under warranty and now I pay because it is out of warranty? is this fair. Oh, but they will sell, wholesale to the "outside shop" the part or parts needed, at a lesser amount. That seems a bit inconsistent with their reasoning, doesn't it? it was me, the consumer, who found and brought to the passport Infiniti svc mgr the service bulletin itb00-028b to show them the problem. They said once goodwill services makes a call on an appeal there is no other recourse. I think they should stand by their problems and pay for the repair. Infinity consumer affairs file #497-0179
they should cover the cost. This issue happened on Wed., Nov. 10, 2004.

The vehicle was a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4. I bought this Jeep on 9/20/2013. The truck is equipped with the 5. 7 l hemi engine. Over the first 50 days and 1,157 miles of ownership I have encountered 18 episodes of the vehicle stalling, with 14 of those stalls occurring on major highways in traffic. The stalls occur with no warning. The vehicle immediately decelerates to a stop and I am left with no power, no steering and no brakes. One dealership blamed it on a bad battery. The dealership which sold me the Jeep diagnosed the problem as a m. A. P. Sensor, which they replaced. That did not correct the problem as the stalling problem continues to occur. The most recent was on 11/9/2013 while driving in the center lane of the PA turnpike at 65 mph. The Jeep stalled and came to a stop, with a semi tractor-trailer behind me. I have no idea how that truck driver was able to swerve in time to miss me. Mechanics and on-line forums identify possible causes for the stalling as 1. A defective (ecm) electronic control modules; 2. Shorts in the wiring harness; 3. Sparks plugs; 4. Egr valve; 5. Ignition coil; 6. Pcv valve; 7. Transmission solenoid pack. There are no diagnostic codes stored in the obd-ii system. One school of thought is that 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and commanders equipped with the 5. 7 l hemi engine are extremely sensitive to radio frequency interference from the waste spark on the coil. As other complaints have noted, this is an obvious and persistent problem with Jeeps equipped with the hemi engine, and Chrysler has turned a deaf ear to the complaints. Perhaps they are waiting for the fatalities to occur. Why NHTSA hasn't done more to order a recall is beyond my comprehension. The problem has been reported on for years with no action taken by Chrysler. This Jeep is, for lack of a better word, a deathtrap. At best it cannot be trusted, it is unsafe and unreliable. At worst it is an accident waiting to happen!. The failure date was Saturday, Sep. 24, 2011.

The vehicle was a 2008 Jeep Patriot 4x4. While driving cross country from ohio to nevada the engine abruptly, without any warning quit running. The engine light did not come on; the temperature gauge was normal; I was continually watching the dash to try to keep the rpms steady (while climbing grades) at approx. 3000 rpm max. For fuel economy. This occurred on I-80 in the middle of wyoming. Fortunately ( luckily) I was in the right hand lane so I was able to coast to the berm. While waiting 1. 5 hour for a tow truck I occasionally tried to start the engine. It would turn over but not start. After a 30 minute drive on the tow truck to the nearest dealership, apparently the problem cooled and the engine did start. The next day while driving up a steep grade the vehicle lurched. I took it the dealership in reno nv. There is a service bulletin already in existence to update the software in this vehicle's computer and to include a new flash drive for the transmission solenoid. They would not guarantee that this would solve the problem. I have driven nearly 3000 miles since then without a problem. How could my local dealership ( brunswick ohio) not have alerted me to needing a software update? I had the Jeep there 4 days before leaving on this trip for the "lifetime poweretrain warranty" inspection. Then, 300 miles after the software update in reno. The right rear wheel bearing failed. Why didn't that dealership check for wheel wobble while they performed their complimentary 22 point safety check? what's up with Jeep? my 2000 cherokee with 170,000+ miles has not had any problems like this; only normal wear repairs. This transmission solenoid problem happened on 09/01/13.

The vehicle involved was a 2011 Kia Motor Sorento. The VIN of the car is 5XYKT4A23B_. Attempted to park car while waiting for a relative to get off work. Car would not shift to reverse or park- no further than neutral. Was able to put car in neutral and brake to stop car. After dropping relative off at home (had to stop car in same manner as above), had to stop in a near empty parking lot, as I still was unable to put the vehicle in reverse or park. Contacted kia dealership by phone and was told by representative to pump the break several times in order to shift the car to neutral/park. Did not work. Was told by rep that the braking "solenoid" ? (spelling?) has malfunctioned and that I should use something like a small screwdriver to push down a button in a small box at the top right of the shifter. Further stated that this would release the break so that the car could be put in park. Was told that car would now be unable to be taken out of park unless the same process was repeated. I've owned this vehicle just over 3 months. Certified per-owed. Less than 34000 miles. Will attempt to take to dealership for repair. Unaware if service center will repair on Saturday. This is the second time this has happened, but it was quickly remedied when I cut the car off and turned it back on while depressing the brake. Thought it was a fluke until today. Should have kept my 2006. This is my 3rd kia. 1st vehicle with an issue like this. This transmission solenoid problem happened on November 9, 2012.

The vehicle is a 1999 Lexus Rx300. The VIN of the problem Rx300 is JT6HF10UXX_. This has been happening since 2013- the car goes up to 35 mphs and then loses power and then shuts off. I have to forcefully pull it over to the side. First time it was worked on replaced battery and thought it was the computer. A year later at 136,000 miles the car makes electrical noises and has difficulty accelerating and shifting above 3000 rpms. When brought it to the dealer, they said it was the transmission and solenoid. This seems to be a common complaint and needs to be investigated. This transmission solenoid problem happened on Mar. 14, 2013.

The vehicle involved is a 2006 Mercedes Benz E350. Having returned from a weekend trip, I started the vehicle and let it warm up for a few minutes. Put the gear selector in drive and off I went, so I thought. My vehicle was actually in limp mode. Several minutes later a check engine light with code p2725 "pressure control solenoid e electrical". In other words, conductor plate and valve body. This is a common problem with 722. 9 transmissions. I had the transmission serviced by a mercedes dealership on 6/27/2013, transmission flush and new filter ($553. 38). Three months later, boom! kaput! limp mode! valve body toasted! dealer quote of $1800 and $2100 to replace valve body. This is a common problem. Mercedes should foot the bill. This issue happened on Monday, October 21, 2013.

The vehicle is a 2003 Mercedes Benz S Class. The VIN of the car is WDBNG75J23_. Shifter stuck in park. There are probably hundreds, possibly even thousands of mercedes owners that have experienced this problem. For no apparent reason and without any warning the shifter locks in park. You turn the car on and it will not move even if using a 16 pound rubber mallet to bang the shifter. I would consider this as a potentially dangerous situation if the person was out in the wilderness or a mother traveling with children in the car. This transmission solenoid problem happened on 09/29/03.. Read more...

The vehicle is a 2009 Mercury Mariner. My vehicle started leaking fluorescent oil from behind the radiator. Apparently, it's the condenser. I have been told that the radiator lines run through the same system, and that if it is not repaired my transmission will eventually fail. This failure was explained to be the transmission locking up, and they said if I'm going over about 30 mph it will be very dangerous. I am about 2,000 miles out of warranty, and the emails I have sent to Ford only get a response that they will be happy to take my money and fix it. Within a few months of buying it, the intake manifold had to be removed to repair something. Then, a transmission solenoid. Then, it was shifting funny -because it had very little fluid-noone could explain why. The vibration in the gas pedal at 42 mph "could not be verified. " the manufacturer was apparently out of satellite receivers, so they just didn't put one in. . . The lack of quality overall proves that the length of the warranty is to prevent them from costly fixes. . . And my "long term investment " makes me feel like I'm putting mine and my family's health at risk by driving it. I spent every dime I saved in iraq on this pos because I knew I wouldn't be able to afford another vehicle until I'm out of medical school. This transmission solenoid issue occurred Mon., Apr. 23, 2012.

The vehicle involved is a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. As of appx 8 months ago, vehicle has bucked on startup. It jumps out , and then stops. Car in forward or reverse jolts out but this is an intermittent occurrence. Yesterday, best describes problem, as I approached red light and put foot on accelerator and car jumped out 3 or 4 times before actually moving forward. . . . This happened for the whole length of my trip. . . Necessitating having to put my hazard lights on so I would not be hit from behind. Repeated trips to reputable mechanic and transmission garage are not able to diagnose problem. Transmission oil and filter and cleaning of solenoids has been done. This transmission solenoid issue occurred Feb. 7, 2013.

The vehicle involved was a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer. I purchased my vehicle in 2009 from the Mitsubishi dealership in GA, brand new. I travel often and long distances so I have accumulated a lot of mileage on my vehicle within a short period of time. I maintain the vehicle with all the proper inspections and services and the suggestion times (oil change every 3k miles, brakes and tires at 50k,. . . ). I began having issues with my transmission in August 2012 with this whining noise everytime I accelerated. My "service engine soon" light came on shortly after the noise started. When I took the car to auto zone, they pulled a "failed shift solenoid" code. I had a transmission fluid flush done at around 70k miles with the proper cvt transmission fluid added to the vehicle. When I was traveling the highway for christmas from missouri to georgia, about halfway through the trip I saw this red signal on the dashboard that read "slow down!" with a thermostat above the warning. I read through the manual and google searched the warning and read that it meant that the transmission fluid was overheating. For the rest of the 13-hour drive, anytime I drove over 75 miles an hour for more than 30 minutes the light would come on. I tried to ignore it at one point and this caused my transmission to stop shifting (I have an automatic). I had to stop 4 times between the trip because of this light. I have a power-train warranty on my vehicle for 10 years/100k miles. While in savannah, I had the Mitsubishi dealer run a diagnostic in which the service technician indicated there was an internal transmission issue. They were unable to resolve the issue at the time because the dealership was closing. Now back in missouri, the dealership is "unable to replicate the code" and is more bent on making me pay the diagnostic fee. Mitsubishi customer care isn't much help either. I feel like I'm going to be stuck on the side of the road soon. Somebody help!. The failure date was 03/19/2013.

The car was a 2005 Nissan Maxima. I had the transmission flushed/serviced at a local Nissan dealership. The transmission started slipping and jerking between speeds of 20 to 30 mph. Sometime it also slips and jerks when I engage the reverse gear. I also started smelling a faint burning smell since then. At a 130000 I had the transmission fluid drained and filled again as the color of the fluid had changed to dark red. I had hoped that the slipping and jerking would go away, but that has not happened. In fact it has grown worse. I have gone online and have found out that mine is not an isolated problem. There are thousands of complaints from 2004-06 Maxima owners who are having similar problems with their transmissions. I think it is about time that Nissan owns up to this transmission problem with these 2004-06 Maximas and issues a recall, replacement and a fix of these defective transmissions. There are posts on numerous Nissan forums about owners who have figured out that all these problems are solenoid and valve related, within the bad transmissions. I did approach a Nissan dealership, explained this problem in detail, but got nowhere with them. They refuse to acknowledge that such a problem exists. I however got estimate of $4500 from one dealership for replacing the transmission in my car. I also understand there has been a class action lawsuit by some Nissan Maxima owners since 2011. I am currently researching joining them in this lawsuit. I am on my third Maxima since 1999. If Nissan does not come through with a recall/replacement/fix of this problem, this is surely my last one. This transmission solenoid problem happened on January 1, 2013.

The car involved is a 2006 Nissan Xterra. I have a 2006 Nissan se Xterra 4. 0 4x2 automatic -I started noticing when gets speed up to 45 miles it is making a hard shifting and when slowing down making a hard down shifting as well. I mostly notice this when the vehicle is already warmed up and stop and go traffic is when it starts acting up, like a clunk noise and feel like it is loosing power in the transmission. It was a cold day and when leaving work and I backed up and then put in drive and started to move forward all of a sudden the service engine light came on and it felt like I had lost power to the transmission. (bogged down feeling) I had to press further down on the peddle to get the Xterra to drive. I drove home slowly with my flashers on praying to god I would not break down within the 7miles. The next day I drove 2 miles to oriellys to pull the code p1754 with several others. I drove to a transmission shop and was given a "worse case scenario" charge of about $3300. 00 -I still owe $6000. 00 for it! I started to investigate the issue online with all of the forums/parts/rebuilds and such and found that the transmission is the issue with the coolant line in radiator cracking and leaking atf into transmission causing problems with corrosion in the valve body and transmission (o rings/seals) causing to be replaced which is (faulty engineered/manufactured highly expensive defect) at around 100,000 miles and cost is $1100. 00 for body valve, rebuilding transmission ($2800. 00-($5000. 00 for new) and replacing the radiator $ 260. 00 and lets not forget about the labor at about $110. 00 an hour for around 13 hours. Who has this kind of money for this repair?? I love my Xterra but not at this cost since I found out that every 100,000 I will have to replace the $1100. 00 transmission valve body (solenoids failing)!! I am very disappointed with Nissan. This transmission solenoid issue occurred Jan. 20, 2014.

Subaru Outback 2010 with cvt transmission bought new. Numerous failures. The transmission first failed due to a solenoid open circuit that disabled the car. Code p2762 ( last week in March, about 2,600 miles). That was fixxed. After this event the transmission would on occasion disengage while still on drive. While driving slowly and after applying brakes to stop at a stop sign. The gas pedal would be depressed, the engine would roar but the car would not move. The transmission would re-engage after shifting to neutral or park and back to drive. The first time this event was reported to the Subaru dealer a number of codes came up; c0057, c0045, c0231, c0232, c0282. Subaru told the dealer to erase the codes and re-program the software. This event has occured three times since then (last week of July 2010, about 9,000 miles). The next time was last week in August, about 10,200 miles. Since the software was re-programmed no codes appear even though the events are identical. This event happened again in December 2010. I brought the car to the dealer (1/27/11). No codes were found. Dealer says that if there are no codes and they cannot reproduce the event then it does not exist as far as they are concerned. The event occured again in early February 2010. To be stopped at an intersection and press the gas pedal while the car is on drive with nothing happening other then high engine revs is a dangerous situation. Consider being in a left turn situation. We have no sympathy from Subaru. This transmission solenoid issue occurred July 24, 2010.

The car involved is a 1997 Suzuki Sidekick. Purchased this Sidekick July 24, 2001. Within days the " engine soon" light came on and stayed on. Due to a 30 day 1000 mile extended warranty I took the Sidekick to the Ford dealership purchased at. The Sidekick was taken to the Suzuki dealership for evaluation. It was determined that the solenoid and valve body were defected. A remanufactured transmission was placed in the vehicle due to cost analysis. After 1. 5 weeks in the shop I picked up "my" Sidekick. Within 3 days the "check engine soon" light came on and stayed on. Returned the Sidekick to the Ford dealership where purchased. The Suzuki dealership determined that the remanufactured transmission needed replaced. It was relayed to me that the Suzuki remanufactured transmissions had a valve body defect. Transmission number 2 was pulled and in went remanufactured transmission number 3. I picked up the Sidekick this morning. Within 2 hours and less than 30 miles the "service engine soon" light came on and stayed on. Contacted the Ford dealership where purchased. The Sidekick will be picked up Monday morning and I'll be driving another loaner vehicle (for which I'm very grateful). I'll find out in 2-3 days whether my new to me used to you gets transmission number 4. I've had this vehicle for 31 days, had the priviledge of driving it for 7 days tops. The 30 day 1000 mile extended warranty has now expired. I've requested a collateral trade. I won't find out about that until the owner of the dealership returns Monday. I've had more transmissions in this one vehicle in one month than I've had in all my vehicles in the past 15 years! like to know what our rights are. I've not even made the first payment yet. Would like some inormation on our rights as consumers. Thanks!. It was 07/31/01 when this transmission solenoid issue occurred.

My wife owns a 2007 Suzuki Forenza, at around 50k miles, we noticed that when shifting from park, the check engine light comes on and the odometer reads a blinking symbol while a violent jerk occurred. Then when accelerating, the car would have a loud low-pitch hum as if we were towing a bus on ice. I had a diagnostic test ran and discovered that my trasnmission range sensor and my transmission shift solenoid were faulty. Me being a mechanic and all, I call around to buy the part, no luck. So I finally call the dealership and guess what they say? only the dealership has the parts and you're going to have to bring it to us and pay a ridiculous price. I refuse to pay someone else to do a job that I know I can do, especially if were talking about a cost that exceeds $500 for a one and a half hour job. I don't understand why these parts are exclusive to dealers especially when the part is obviously poorly crafted by the makers. So many complaints about the same thing. Why hasn't there been a recall already? or at least make the parts available to the public. This is a serious safety hazard, left turns are a gamble, and I can just imagine the wear on the engine itself. At 50 mph the rpm's are at 3000 to 4000 rpm's! please help!. It was 06/07/10 when this transmission solenoid issue happened.

The vehicle is a 2007 Toyota Sienna. I am the second owner of the vehicle. I was driving on interstate 5 at 65 miles per hours from sacramento to los angeles. The time was 1600 on 13 April 2014. I did not notice any crack or noise from road debris damage while I am diving. The red low oil warning light on the dashboard did not turn on at the time when the incident happened. I was pulled over a rest stop to use restroom; I also walk around the vehicle to conduct a visual check and fluid check at the same time. I was discovered engine oil was all over the engine bay, undercarriage and the back lift door during the visual check. When I checked the engine oil, the dip stick showed no engine oil. Again, the red low oil warning light did not turn on which indicate low engine oil at that time even the engine had no engine oil. Vehicle was towed to Toyota dealership and discovered an oil cooler hose which make out of rubber was ruptured. Even the oil cooler hose was replaced with a metal oil hose; the engine was damaged by operated without engine oil for a significant period. Prior to the trip, I purchased the all metal vvt-I hose from a local dealership, again no warning from the dealership. I used a local repair shop to replace the vvt-I hose locate at the passage side of the engine to an all metal pipe since I have knowledge on the rubber vvt-I hose have the same rupture issue. However, I have no knowledge on the t-sb-0201-11 which is the Toyota technical service bulletin title oil cooler pipe seep. There is recall regarding shift lock solenoid and severe corrosion of the spare tire carrier cable on the 2007 Sienna, however, there is no recall on possible rupture on vvt-I hose or oil cooler hose. If the recall was issued or at least warned by dealership, I will fix the oil cooler hose at the dealer or a local repair shop and avoid the engine damage which leaded to engine replacement. This transmission solenoid issue occurred April 13, 2014.

The car involved was a 2000 Volkswagen Passat. VIN of the vehicle was WVWMA23B8Y_. Transmission periodically experiences intermittent hard shifting on startup. The vehicle then goes into "limping mode" which causes very slow acceleration. The problem causes a sensor in the car to display "emissions workshop" warning on the dash indicator. Turning the car off and restarting seems to correct the fault. Vw diagnostic procedures identified the problem as "1 dtc recognized 18227 p1819 035 pressure control solenoid 2 open/short to ground sporadic dtc 1551 diagnosis". The problem has occurred immediately after startup, and on a second occassion while in gear standing at a traffic signal. Subsequent testing could not identify a specific defective component and no corrective repairs were made. This problem is a safety hazard if the vehicle fails to operate according to manufacturers specifications when operated on high speed controlled access highways. Failure to accelerate on a freeway at a critical time could result in death or serious injury. This transmission solenoid problem happened on Jun. 13, 2001.

The car is a 2001 BMW 330i. The metal strap that supports the passenger side of the fuel tank just broke off. I was driving down the street and heard a pop sound and then metal grinding and jumping around (like a needle on a scratched record/ a cd) the bracket to which the forward end of this strap mounted to the underbody broke free leaving a gash like tear on the underbody. I am having the car serviced for repairs, but when I called the dealership the parts department didn't have any fixable solution for the mishap. They told me that the only thing that I could do was take it to a body shop to have a fabricated piece made. I've researched this incident and found that there have been several other BMW owners who have experienced the same incident. I am also experiencing the loss of reverse. The drive gear seems to be fine; however, the reverse is not operating. I am now looking into having it serviced for that issue as well. When I called the dealership, they did tell me that there was an open campaign on the transmission (though the service manager said that it was only for programming issues). I had also found that there has been other BMW owners that have experienced this issue as well. I know that they had mentioned that there were two types of transmission (the gm and the zf transmission). There was a mention that it could be a faulty solenoid or the reverse drum has broken/ shredded. None the less you can place into "reverse" and give it gas and nothing happens no movement unless you place into "drive. " my car does have the steptronic feature. This transmission solenoid issue occurred 08/09/2012.
