the thing about solenoids is that when they go out, you typically loose 2 gears, not just one. in the case of the 4t65, 3rd gear has both solenoids off
, which would mean if your solenoids died, you would be guaranteed to at least have 3rd gear
anyhew, for anyone who'* interested, i'll do a quick write-up tomorrow explaining what solenoids and clutches are locked up in what gears, and what you can expect to happen if they die. there'* a great chart that i'll try to get up... very handy for trouble shooting.
