Default Likely Scenario about Trans Problems???

This thought process is related to my last post" reverse and forward gear banging problems" .....Trans shop said it is a bad valve body, and the plug connector that goes to the top of the valve body is bad.....This brings me to my question....I had the 60,000 mile service done to The sc1 and the ECTS was cracked so I replced the ECTS and Spliced in a new connector. My scenario goes like this ..........the ECTS cracked and coolant started to leak onto the Electrical connector for the valve body, Reverse gear started to bang, had 60,000 mile service done including tranny drain and fill. I replaced The ects , upper motor mount, and muffler strap, car ran like it was brand new except for reverse gear bang was still there. 1 week later the forward gears were banging....SO ...if the electrical connector to the valve body was never diagnosed and replaced then the trans would get worse over time due to bad connections and that might be why no codes showed up the 3 different times I had them checked??? If this is the case would it be a good idea to use some type of protective tape to cover the connnector on the valve body cover so that no leaking fluids,oils, or other liquids could potentially get in the connector and cause issues??

Default Re: Likely Scenario about Trans Problems???

The temp sensor is far enough away from the trans connector that it would not happen. Nevermind that the connectors are weather sealed so that it would take some serious pressure to get in the connector.
If the wiring terminals in the connector and the trans are bad then replace the harness connector and the bus plate in the valve body. You should not have to replace the entire valve body.
