|Crosley||Normally those clips in the positions circled , the clips are on the inside of the valve body. that would require the v-body to be dropped for proper installation|

|SAATR||Thanks! I thought it was something like that. What I was after, though, was what do these two valves specifically control on a 4l60e? And would they be related to my loss of 1st and 4th? I will be going to a local transmission supply and getting a few clips to install in the tranny. Only bad part is I have to drop the pan again .|

|AndersonRacing44||those are the piston retaining plugs or what you want to call them. yes when fluid pressure is lost or gained the piston moves causing it to shift a gear (that is in very laymans terms) you need those clips.|

Parts found in pan on 4l60e, what are they? (pics)
My 97 Suburban hasn't had OD since I've owned it (about 8 months) and just recently lost 1st. I had the "Shift Solenoid A CKT malfunction or stuck open" code in the PCM and after a little research figured it was the solenoid. I dropped the pan this evening and, lo and behold, there's parts in it! Just one part, specifically, a small plug or plunger that I've circled in the diagram below:
I don't remember which one it was, but I pushed the spring back in and stuffed the plug back in and it stayed (wasn't aware that there was supposed to be a clip... it wasn't in there). I replaced solenoid A and reassembled the tranny. Upon test driving, I found that my problem still persisted. It started out in 2nd, upshifted to 3rd, and only downshifted to first once when I punched it. My questions are as follows:
1. What is that part?
2. What does it do?
3. Is it related to the afore mentioned problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys.
