I was just informed that one of my Solenoid Valves is out in the automatic transmission of my 850 Wagon and that it would be $1000 to replace it. Has anyone replaced one of these before? If so, how difficult of a job is it?<br>What does the part run?<p>Thanks,<p>Kiva

Re: Solenoid Valve - replacing it (scrappyj0)

This is NOT DYI job. Experianced TRANSMISSION mechanic only.<br>U SURE it's that part that's bad?<br>Trans has to come apart, might as well have it rebuilt or buy a rebuilt or used tranny

Re: Solenoid Valve - replacing it (scrappyj0)

I have done theses plenty of times. Not a do it yourself type of job.(As JRL mentioned) Takes about 5 good hours.<br>Have you been doing your trans services?<br>They usually go bad when they get some dirt stuck in them. Try a Trans Flush first. Its much cheaper and it might work.<br>Did the shop tell you which solenoid it was. STH,SL,S1,S2?

Re: Solenoid Valve - replacing it (854T5)

How do you go about flushing the transmission? I have never done this before. Thanks for your help!

<A HREF="http://www.volvospeed.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvospeed.com</A> in the maitenance section shows you how. Also, <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com</A> has a pdf file that shows the same, or about the same process. You'll have to look that up in their transmission section....parts for the flush they sell. Good luck!
