Alright a guy at work rebuilt a EJ22 Auto tranny for a car I'm working on. Got the tranny put back in the car and went for a test drive. One the snow, no problems but the second you hit dry pavement its getting rear diff bind.

It is the matching rear diff to the tranny. I pulled both out of another car and installed in this one. The car drove on dry pavement for a month no problems until after the tranny was rebuilt.

The only thing I can think of is the guy left one of the selinoids in the tail shaft unplugged. Would this cause the rear end to want to bind up? I'm not too familiar with the auto trannys so I'm lookin for you new gen guys to give me some advice. thanks in advance.

I bet solenoid C isn't plugged in or isn't working correctly.

check continuity to Duty solenoid C. being disconnected will cause the transfer clutches to be fully engaged and hence binding on hard surfaces.
