The solenoid is easily replaced. I waited almost a week for a replacement from Subaru (The JDM had a bad one, only had R and 2; took the one off the OE to get the JDM running). Its about 125 I think.

My Actron pulled the tranny code. If its a P series code for the transmission, it should show up on any global OBDII reader.

Cheaper is not always better.
i couldn't find anyone else, i tried for 2 weeks. most didn't have one. the one that did wanted 850 +400 to 500 to put in. i couldn't see puting that much in it. that was just a clean swap. no timing chain or any preventive procedures. i got a garage going to look it over monday for harness problems and damage to the fluid pan where te solenoid 2 is located.

thanks

Either something was damaged on the transmission they installed or something was left unplugged or was damaged on installation.

The quick shift could be caused by improper data sent to the ECM.

Please advise if it is easier to replace both engine and tranny or just the engine. This one is not shifting out of low, the tach stays at 3000. I let off the gas and it drops to 2200 and stays. Now I'm smelling smthg burning.
Thanks

Pull the transmission out the bottom. Less likelihood of damage to engine compartment accessories. And, when you get to where you are going to remove the torque converter bolts, take the throttle body off. It opens up more room.

You can get a VIN Inquiry from a dealer that will show the original Trans and engine numbers that were installed from the factory. If the vehicle has had a the transmission replaced they would not match anyway. I don't know where you are located what your Legal options may be, but it may be cheaper in the long run to at least consider small claims action to recover any damges they may have created.

thank you for advise.
i want to make sure they didn't put another tranny in and that the original one is still in the car. the one in it now will not shift down.
