O, wife needs car for weekend. I changed the seleniods in the tranny and the old ones bench tested fine. All my fuses seem to have power except #20 crank fuse to which I dont know what it does and I dont have a fuse labled IGN. I have wiggled the key the 2 codes that come up are for the shift seleniods and a o2 sensor Im at a loss.I also have had a vacuum line off at the tranny that I asume is for the 4wheel drive and it has been leaking tranny iol I dont know were it connects to.

Do you

Taek this to a trans pro, it'probably time for a rebuild especially with the mileage you have on it. He can give you a better/proper diagnosis.

The only vacuum lines going to the rear are for the evap cannister by the gas tank. The line you are talking about by the trans may be a vent line for the tcase that goes towards the top of trans. Because you are getting a shift soleonoid code and you have already changed a few then it is maybe a problem with teh clutch seal or clutch itself. That is why we reccomend going to a trans guy, they can give a better diagnosis because they can actually do a few things and see it whereas we cannot. The crank fuse sends power to the nuetral safety switch, which if your truck starts it shoudl be ok.
