Possible causes po750: - Low transmission fluid level - Dirty transmission fluid - Faulty shift solenoid 'A' valve - Shift solenoid 'A' valve harness or connectors - Shift solenoid 'A' valve circuit is open or shorted Tech notes When the a transmission solenoid is malfunction, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.............................Possible causes po758: - Low transmission fluid level - Dirty transmission fluid - Faulty shift solenoid 'B' valve - Shift solenoid 'B' valve harness or connectors - Shift solenoid 'B' valve circuit is open or shorted What does this mean?
