Is failure to downshift from 2-1 a solenoid problem?
Ive read where i can get aftermarket solenoids at amazon and ebay for fifty bucks. Easy install too but i need to know that thats the problem. Wont downshift for passing either. Any suggestions?

Can you manually downshift the trans?

Wrong section.

Edit: Moving this to OEM Tech for you where you can get better help. Good luck.

Pull the transmission and Flex Plate then replace the freeze plug. Easy, right....

As for the transmission issue, you may want to adjust the TV cable (see video).
