I went and dug up the repair sheet from the dealer. To quote from it"Diagnosed trans drivability problem, performed PCS diagnosis, R&R valve body, cleaned and replaced PCS per Bull000730002". In the list of parts were a solenoid valve, 2 gasket kits, cleaner, seal and fluorescent dye. The seal and dye were for a leaking axle seal. Since it was all warranty, there isn't any labor time on the ticket.
