I've been told by my mechanic that the 1st to 2nd gear shift solenoid needs replacing and the auto a service.

It only shifts hardish sometimes from 1st to 2nd.

He said they'll replace the 1st to 2nd gear shift solenoid and service the auto for $300.

Is this a reasonable price? Can anyone recommend any auto specialists?

Cheers,

Simon

The price quoted is not too bad but how did the mechanic diagnose a single solenoid problem when 2 solenoids actually control the 1 - 2 shift. Maybe try a transmission specialist before you waste your money.

Hi ,Dave tranny dude,you may have solved my prob too.
i have a ef xr6 with similar prob,the harsh gear change only occurs when
its about to change down to 1st,then when it moves on it does nothing for
a second or so then bangs up into 2nd ,because the revs are up.
Sorry to hijack your post,but it sounds likesame prob i described in my
post ,back on 22nd april,(ef xr auto prob).
still havnt solved the prob ,so if the B-1bevel spring does , your a legend!
cheers XR Trev. :D

I was wondering about the tranny diagnosis. Dont good tranny shops have a Diag tool that tests the Solenoids directly and give a Go/No Go answer?

clubby sounds on the mark.
most mechanics general and specialised should have a scanner (one of the basic tools to have now) which can give you trouble codes.
but if its a spring gone no scanner will pick that up, only experience can do that.

My EL had the same fault and one fix offered was shim out the S2 or s3 solinoid I tryed it ,no luck.
So I talked to a auto repair shop and he sure knew his stuff on autos.
I changed the S5 solinoid myself, easy as( the $500 one not the cheap others of course)
Smooth as after that

So does this mean that clubby's "On Line" diagnosis was wrong??????
