Fluid level?

Other than that, it's a toss up as to whether it's a shift solenoid or valve body. Those transmissions should last longer mechanically, but you never know how it was treated.

sure fluid level must be correct, owned car since new. Only hwy miles. That trans has never had a hard day. So how do I diagnose between valve body or solenoid??

Wait a minute---- you changed the filter and fluid, and then it stopped going into gear? It might be that you inadvertently disconnected the 2-3 shift solenoid. I've heard that happening before on here.

I'm sorry I don't personally know of a diagnostic procedure other than replacing the solenoid.
