I need to do this, I have the same porblem except my tranny will downshift in 4th gear if im not going over 40MPH.
If that turns out to be the problem, can solenoid be removed without fluid running out? My car has a 3-speed 722.004 transmission.

I suppose I could connect 12v t the solenoid and listen to see if it actuates. Wonder if solenoid needs engine running before testing?
