My 2003 Toyota Corolla with 175,000 miles was showing the check engine light. My friend ran a check and the code P0770 came up, which is Shift Solenoid 'E' Malfunction. When I'm on the freeway, I do notice my car is slow on accelerating, but my MPG is fine. How much would it cost to get this fix? Also, would I fail the California SMOG check? My friend removed the check engine light and it hasn't reappeared (It's been a good 500 miles without it reappearing, but my car is still slow at accelerating). Thanks guys!

It depends on how he 'removed' the CEL light, in the process of a Calif smog check they test the CEL, and if it is inop you fail. Now if he removed it by fixing/replacing the solenoid, you are fine. Cost? Very difficult to estimate. The solenoid is only $15 but it's inside, the pan has to come off, and there is some labor time there. Click on this, '3' is 'E'

@DavidH25, he didn't fix anything. He just turned off the code. My car is just slow at accelerating; I don't think it's releasing emissions though. Would I fail the California Smog test for a 'E' Solenoid problem?

Now that one moorejake is a good question, any help here? But to clear the CEL whatever make it light up had to have been fixed or the CEL will re-appear. Unless it was disabled that is.
