Hi I recently purchased a 2006 Saturn ion 3 with a 2.2l eco tech and a 4t45e transmission. Very much like the little car. I'm having transmission issues the vehicle rpms run way high before hard shift from 1-2. Under heavy load will not shift at all. Going downhill light load shifts very close to being right. No slippage every other gear shifts perfect overdrive and torque converter lock up perfect. I am quite savvy on these things and slapping a full set of solenoids in it is what I think would fix it. No codes and cold or warm does not affect symptoms. Solenoid worked some when tested and other times stuck. No metal in pan whatsoever. Any thoughts on putting the solenoids in it fixing it? Second question I do not have access to a rack in order to remove the side cover I should be able to remove the cradle then lower the tranny side down with a jack without supporting the engine from the top because the passenger motor mount and driver tranny mount is on top bolted to engine compartment. Am I correct in assuming I can do it that way without motor support from up top because that mount on engine passenger fender well will always be connected
have the same problem?
