My 1997 saturn SW2 doesn't seem to be shifting into 3rd gear at all. Check engine code states error about 3rd gear. I tried replacing the valve body, which didn't help at all.I replaced the fluid, filter, and checked resistance of the solenoids as well. Could this be a loose i/o shaft nut?
there is a slight hard shift into reverse.
All other shifts are fine into other gears except 3rd.
only 77,000 miles.
thanks for any help.

When you replaced the valve body did you air check all the clutch pack's to make sure they all held pressure?
