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.
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:
