Was wondering if anybody could give me some pointers on installing a solenoid gasket on my 2001 PT auto transmission. I thought I would try the gasket first to stop my leak ( smart or not? ). It is without doubt leaking from here ( visual inspection ) and have read that sometimes the solenoid is warped and replacing the gasket would not help. Any way to tell this before I do the gasket only? I have read the service manual and the work does not seem to hard. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Have you checked to insure the part hasn't changed? I thought in my 03 Neon the Sol Pack had the gasket built on.... And rather you had to change the whole pack. Not sure

Part number has been updated, but the gasket is still needed.

Remove the 8-pin connector (5/16" screwhead). Clean dirt from the pack area. Remove the 3 - 10mm bolts and lift off the pack. There may be some spillage. Replace the gasket. It's a block of machined aluminum so it probably isn't warped. The steel cover seal is what leaks. If this is what is leaking, no service is recommended, the seal is not availible separately and sol-pack replacement is the only suggested option.

Thanks for confirming my thoughts!
