I recently purchased a 97 Suburban V8 350 5.7 with 143K miles and the check engine light came on.
I plugged a code reader into it and it said that the shift solenoid a was either stuck or in the off position.
I dropped it off at a mechanic to have him check it and he replaced the two solenoids inside the tranny plate.
He called me up and said that the problem was still there and I was still losing 2nd and 4th gear and that he would have to take the valve body out and possibly rebuild/replace it.
When I talked to him today he had taken the valve body out but has still not figured out the problem.
Obviously, I have no clue when it comes to transmissions, but I just want to make sure i'm not getting screwed on mounting shop hours @ $80 per. (I'm up to 7 hours already)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
