Hey all,
I'm new to the CL forum but have lots of Legend experience. My question, is the first gen CL auto transmission anything like the first generation legend with exterior shift solenoids. I've fixed many Legend transmissions by just cleaning the solenoids of the built up metal particles.
I'm asking because there is a 98 for sale near me with shifting problems and I was hoping for an easy fix once I've purchased it.

Well, I bought the car, towed it home and immediately pulled the solenoids. The screens were totally clogged. Cleaned them with brake cleaner then opened the solenoids with a small drift while I shot brake cleaner through them. They click almost as good as new. Now the car has all four gears not just first and fourth. Less than an hours work and I have a fully functional four speed auto. I can email photos if you would like to see the difference.
