Quick post, last year when I bought my truck i serviced the tranny, upon dropping the pan i noticed my 1-2 solenoid (which I was replacing at the time, to fix a hard 1-2 shift) was tightly fit, however my 3-4 was a little loosey goosey, at rhe time, my brother said he thinks thats how its supposed to be. So i stupidly went along with that, now my transmission has always had some odd problems such as slipping 2-3 when its really cold, but shifts fine when it warms up, and delayed shifting especially going up hill ill have the pedal all the way to the floor for a few seconds before it shifts, and if i dont let off the pedal soon enough itll go straight into OD,
Recently I was replacing my int wiring harness when got to looking at it again and it still bugging me
Now ive read that a loose or bad 3-4 solenoid will burn out tour clutch pack, but i figured after a year it would of ate up something, and i drive 6 hours there and back every month for drill, so my old truck is getting some mileage, any thoughts?

Either the plastic part of solenoid is loose in the metal frame or the o-ring is bad. I have never seen a valve body worn in the bore for the solenoids. The solenoid just pushes in to the bore and is held in by a clip. The whole solenoid can be bought from just about any parts store.

No, not any codes if it is functioning. I checked a couple of vb's today. Because they aren't bolted down. A guy might consider it to be loose. The 2-3 solenoid has no springs in the valve line-up. Because of that it will seem looser than the other. The 1-2 solenoid has a pretty stiff spring in the line-up, be careful when/if you pull that clip. I've seen it shoot out of the bore.
