92 E4OD problems

Got some problems shifting from 1 to 2nd gear. When I am riding around town in the 30-40 range, when the tranny shifts into second it makes some weird vibrations and noises and sounds like it is trying to slip back into 1st. When I am really on the gas trying to go from 0-55, this doesn't occur. I checked the fluid, the level was fine and had no bubbles. This just started happening yesterday 92 with E4OD and 302. I need to know if I need to start finding a place to rebuild the damn thing.

hey stoked you mean the E4OD.

Justin, is there a button on the dash for Overdrive? that would be the easiest way to tell.
if so then your mlps solenoid is going out. its a fairly cheap part and can be picked up at most parts stores.

E4OD has either a button on the dash or on the shift lever, and AOD has a position to shift into, for examp: P R N OD D 1. Sounds to me like it's just slipping a lil. Get a diagnostics run on it to make sure it's not your VSS. If it's not, have it flushed ($80 bucks I think) and then give it a few days. After that, if it's still acting up, then I'd worry.

true but for cars like you said, not trucks that would be the E4OD

My mistake, it is the E4OD. I am going to have a mechanic check it out next week hopefully. I checked the fluid today, it is a dark red and smells burnt. I am going to change it tomorrow. My manual says it takes about 12-16 quarts of tranny fluid, is that correct?
Is the mlps solenoid an internal part or can it be changed w/o removing the pan, if it is the mlps, would you mind explaining what it does, location, etc. Thanks (I don't know a whole hell of a lot about trannies unless it is a C-4 or C-6)
