2002 Mountineer
Hey guys, great forum. My brother has a 2002 mountineer with a 4.0 V6. He called me yesterday to let me know that his trans has been acting up and that his OD light was flashing. I pulled codes and got code P0745 Pressure solenoid A short circuit. He says that it flairs shifting after 35-40 MPH and has trouble going up hills. I ohm the solenoids and they seemed to fail. They pulled 30 ohms all 3 pressure solenoids. Could it be the solenoid pack? I plan on draining the fluid to see if there is any band material, and plan on adjusting the bands. I guess also plan on checking the servos. I have rebuild a bunch of AODS before, and I hope i dont have to add a 5r55w to the list. Is there any thing im missing, and any other sugguestions you guys can think of? Thanks again, I appreciate it.
