Hope you like field trips, enjoy the video. So I did a search and I only found two threads specifically dealing with this issue. So far, so good on the second iteration of the repair. I still have the old solenoids as I returned the core without them. Did you happen to note the dates printed on the solenoids???? They seem to be intact, and do have continuity. I've put about a thousand miles on it since and haven't had any issues. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Or you can call my shop, It is TriTec Automotive in Annapolis, Maryland. I cant afford to take it to a shop at the moment. At the dealer, however, if this job is done under warranty, it only pays the tech 0. Your not holding the voltage but clicking for split second - for some may operate at slightly under 12 volts due to the circuit they're in. Yes the valve body is located in the transmission, but is easily accessed by removing the atf pan.
You could feel the kick going into gear and it was pretty loud too. And since they are sitting on top inside the valve body, there is no easy way to access them. Service engine soon light is still on. So I head to auto zone to get codes. So now I try to make it to get some codes. All suggestions and advice is greatly appreciated.
I'm not at the shop so can't point ya there. Here is the picture of what it looks like below. They are independent publications and are not affiliated with or endorsed by or. I'm there 8am to 5pm Mon-Fri. And it seems that its not necessarily the solenoid.
Fortunately, my trip home is mostly highway, so 4th gear as the only option was not too challenging. The solution appears to be to solder a small piece wire across the break to reinforce they whole area. Hey bam71, did you eventually get the tranny fixed? He showed me the code of P1716 which seems to be accurate and then pulled a valve body from the back and showed me the motherboard and the two sensors on top of it. After I took everything apart, there is no broken piece on the board and I checked it over with a multimeter and did not find any glaring issues. I'll be happy to talk to you to make sure these will help.
Anyway, I am on the way to work and all of a sudden acceleration is weak, check engine light comes on and I feel like the vehicle is in limp mode. But in defense of my colleagues and fellow techs who are employed by the Stealer, I do realize they are run bass ackwards. I get it in to the shop and start pulling codes and running diagnostics. I get in and start it up. So i stopped tried again same thing.
I try and do as much research as possible, but everything points to the valvebody. First off, I own a 2006 M35x with 135,000 miles on it. The valvebody is not very complicated to replace, its right on the bottom and is exposed as soon as you drop the tranny fluid pan. Fingers crosses that does the trick for longer than 10 days! But I also can't have it at a stand still. It is these great posts that make these forums worthwhile.
Back into limp mode on the 11th. Now I'm still stuck with a car that has a wacky tranny. Where should I start to work my way from to figure out the problem? Thank you for that Costee! Read the comments on the youtube video. I pull over on the shoulder, come to a stop, put the shifter in park and think for a minute on what to do next. Thank you for fixing it and taking the time to document your success here to help the rest of us! When I was taking off from the stop sign, there was a delay. The wire I hope will add some more support at the bend, but time will tell.
I tried to look at the part numbers on the solenoids but did not yield any results when i do a search. My wife will be giving birth in about 2 months. Just a little thank you for all of Infiniti of Annapolis' help! It is not cheaper to get a used transmission, nor is it wise unless you have a ridiculous amount of miles or other transmission problems. I have been debating buying only a new solenoid, but I'm afraid I'll put all of this back together and still have an issue. Find the cracked track, solder the track with non-leaded solder Tin+Silver from you local plumbing store. So i go down the street to turn around and there's the delay on 1st gear again.
