The overdrive light started flashing the other day. Had them check at Jiffy Lube but they said it was a sealed trans and had to go to the dealer. They did give me the computer code which said it was some kind of pressure solenoid B. I assume that is in the transmission. I have an appointment at the dealer tomorrow to diagnose it.
The manual says that when this light flashes have the transmission serviced, which does not seem so bad but over the phone the service guy sure made it sound likely to be huge.
The service guy on the phone started telling me how much it is for a new transmission--$4000. This is making me uneasy. Does replacing the solenoid usually take care of it or is it more likely that the transmission need replacement for this car?
I don't have the $$ for a new one.
Can you give me any insight?
