" You can remove the valve body from the trans from underneath (removing the pan and thus draining the transfluid) which would be the place to start on that one as well. Possibly it is just dirty, or needs replacement. "    On a dodge you get access to the solenoid pak from the top, NOT the bottom. No need to remove the pan. Just be VERY careful you blow out the dirt between the solenoid and the casing of the trans.   Remove the aircleaner plenum and the two rubber hoses, pull out the air cleaner and the case under the battery, and VIOLA - you can see the solenoid pak. Pulling the front crossmember out takes a few minutes but gives a much better working area.
