Thank you for any info
with this trans, its not as simple as replacing a shift solenoid as there is only one in the pan and thats for 4th gear.
a very common problem with these units is the governor pressure sensor and governor pressure transducer. if they fail, the trans will not shift. the key info here at this time is,
whats the sypmtoms, hows the condition and level of the fluid, and how many miles are on the trans, and lastly, have you had it scanned for codes?
also, for added info, all the "RE" units (95-up) all came with a lockup converter from the factory.
