99 Camry XLE V6 with fauft code P0773 problem.
My 99 Camry XLE V6 fails smog-check with code P0773. I haven't found any
wrong on the car performant. The check engine is on and off for a while, then
back to on again. Does shift solenoid fail? A mechanic at test station isn't sure
that changing shift solenoid will fix the problem. Any advice will help.
Shift solenoids fail all the time, your best bet is to take it to a tranny shop, they can plug in and make the transmission solenoids work by overriding the vehicles normal system, and then they can see the results, when the testing is complete that can inform you on what it is going to take to fix it properly.
Might be interesting to see what a Tranny Shop would want in $$$$ to fix this issue. I seem to remember this particular Solenoid is externally located. A tranny tear down was not required. You might consider a "Fluid Exchange Procedure for this issue. Good Luck.
