Does anyone know where to purchase the 3 transmission solenoids for my 2003? The check engine light comes on after resetting numerous times and the D5 blinks. Code P0741. I do not notice any difference in the shifting. Transmission was rebuilt 40 k ago. Now has a shade under 240k miles.
Dealer and aftermarket prices high. I understand the tranny side panel has to be removed to replace.

Solenoid electrical faults are not indicated, however they could be physically blocked w/ trash.

Check sponsor for parts or ebay. Only OEM should be considered.

good luck

Have you done a few drain-and-fills on your transmission? It could be stuck valving in the valve body, rather than a shift solenoid. I guess the other question would be to make certain which two solenoids you replaced (the torque converter lockup solenoid and the "C" shift solenoid).

Here's the info on the P0401 - sounds like removing and cleaning the EGR valve is likely to fix that one...
