1998 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
My service engine soon light has come on and I am past due for a smog. I get two trouble codes, P0700 and P0740. The engine is the 3.3L V-6. I do not seem to be having any trouble with my transmission which makes me think that my solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. The transmission was rebuilt at 90,000 miles some time ago by a local shop. Through some investigation, I have been told to trouble shoot the solenoid it must have 10 volts across its leads when the key is on and with the key off it should measure 30 to 50 ohms. How do you take this unit off the torque converter and where is it located? I have looked at where I thought it would be located and there are several wires to connectors in the area of the transmission/torque converter. I have asked or local Chrysler dealership and they were less than helpful telling me they have all their information on handheld units and could not copy any information for me about trobleshooting or showing me the location of the unit. Do you have any other thoughts about this problem?
