Run the fault codes
solenoids and servos do not operate unless they get a signal from the transmission ratio sensor , the Transmission control module or the VSS it will be revealed by a problem code

well the low cost way to go first would be to try and change the trans fluids. If the problems still remains the it may be an internal problem

Remove the transmission pan and you will see the solenoids. They can be replaced without removing the transmission.

SOURCE: transmission error code P1750

Might be really simple - but EXPENSIVE! I had a similar fault - apparently the first planet set breaks up. Cure - a new box. Price - crippling!

Don't be tempted to skimp on the box. Get a rebuild from a reputable supplier. A s/h box will set you back around £5-600 in UK where a rebuilt (guaranteed) will be more like £1800. The thing with the cheap box is it costs about the same to fit but you don't know how good it is till it's too late! Then you're still shopping for another but you're £600 lighter!

Also, you could be buying other faults. If the speed sensor has had a problem - the box will change badly (snatching) and that will be another £250 where the expensive box will have ahad one fitted!

I was looking at buying a 2002 lancer the only problem is that they are saying it needs a solenoid for the transmission.


buyer be ware of sellers comments as to the fault
have them take you to autozone or some other service that can read the fault codes and find out exactly what is the solenoid/servo that is the problem
Advice is to pay the absolute minimum as you will have to pay for the repairs or walk on by to a better deal

Cavalier stalls out when decelerating


If your car is equipped with a lockup torque converter in the transmission, a part called the torque converter clutch solenoid could be defective. Any transmission shop should know what to look for. Sometimes you can unplug an electrical connector on the side of the transmission and drive the car. If this takes care of the problem this verifies that the torque converter clutch solenoid is the problem. This usually will make either your check engine or service engine soon light come on when you do this however. This condition usually feels like you are trying to stop a manual transmission car without pushing in on the clutch. good luck.

Your Lancer should have a timing belt. There is no grace period on changing them, follow what the manufacturer says. You have a interference engine and should the belt fail while you are driving down the highway engine damage will happen.

I have a code p0715, which is the input turbine speed sensor


The input/turbine speed sensor has nothing to do with the turbo. It is transmission related and is a circuit malfunction. I am having the same problem and it causes my car to downshift into 3rd gear (computer's fail safe gear) on the highway. The sensor is located above the transmission housing, and doesn't require you to take apart the tranny. I am having trouble finding the part number for this and where to buy it. Any help would be nice.
