Re: A Teen at Work!

Thanks, man, much appreciated! :)

The controversy with the magnets is the amount of ferrous / verses non ferrous metals in the engine. So I guess people think there's a problem with...

Re: A Teen at Work!

Re: A Teen at Work!

Thanks! For you I'd go with the blue top solenoid, I'm sure you've heard of it. But its not too hard of a job at all, maybe a tad messy. But then while you do that you can do the same thing I did and...

Re: 05' JGC WK Stuck in 3rd Gear!

Re: A Teen at Work!

I made a mistake, it's P2706 I believe. MS Solenoid error. I'm gonna go ahead and say I need to replace the Solenoid pack above the valve body.
