Hi all, anyone knows where i could find aftermarket solenoids. I have one that sticks when hot, and the dealer only sell the whole valvebody and not just the solenoids!!! :eek:

She works fine until i need to downshift from 4th to 3rd gear... Then it happens... If i don't let the tranny shift in the 4th gear i'm good.. but then i rev about 5500 to do 90km/h!!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Don't by the cheapest one you see. try and find who supplies OE (brand name) and that should be your best bet.

I am seeing 121.00 aftermarket with a very quick check.

Just curious. Are you sure its a 4EAT. I have a 05 impreza and the tranny shop calls it a MB3 tranny. I'm concerned I might not be getting the right info from my tranny shop.

That's it, nobody knows who makes those solenoid?

I have called Sonnax but they don't make them for this transmission.

Any other help out there?

Thanks for the help :D

google trans rebuild kits. some one, nipper i think, posted a link last month or late fall. there are companyie that sell parts for rebuilding an auto trans. i'd look there and maybe search nippers threads.

it's a place to start. call them.
