Replacement shift solenoids

My 2g AWD is in need of shift solenoids. I have a 1g awd trans in my garage. Are the shift solenoids or valvebodies interchangeable? I know the 2g has a W4a33ev-s. not sure on the 1g trans but it came off a 92.

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

The valve bodies are physically interchangeable but they are tuned different. The solenoids MAY be interchangeable depending on the year of the 1g transmission, the wrong year will trash your tcu.

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

The three plug TCU ( 91 to early 92) is the older of the 1g harnesses...Neither 1g harness ( early or late) has the lockup solenoid that your 2g needs either..

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

A 1g non turbo will have the lockup converter though. And as far as years go, the very early ones are the ones to stay away from 90-91 they had the low resistance solenoids.

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

Long story short, that early 1g awd trans you have will not help you source solenoids for your 2g...

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

Best bet is to go to a junkyard and pull the solenoids from a n/t 1.8 or 2.0 from late 92-94.

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

Your car is going to either have a all 3 ohm solenoids or a mixture of 3 ohm and a 13 ohm solenoid. If a 3 ohm solenoid is used where a 13 ohm solenoid is used, your computer will be fried. I don' t know if the reverse is true. When you replace your solenoids, test each solenoid with a ohm meter and make sure the new ones your are replacing are the same resistance value. The 13 ohm solenoid started being used in 93, so that should be the cut over for cross reference purposes. More info can be found at these links:

Re: Replacement shift solenoids

The reverse is not true, you can go one way but not the other.
