    I have the old slam in reverse problem and figured on changing the
    valve body.. now saturn has changed the program and only change the
    whole assembly. Does the whole assembly come with switches/solenoids or
    is it just twice as much money for the heck of it???

    I have an extended warranty program that pays half but am worried that
    they will not pay half of the whole assembly just the old valve body
    price which would turn my payment from 250.00 to 400.00 quite a large

    Have you tried the "reverse slam" fix posted here? Many claim it fixed
    their problem.

    If you need the whole valve assembly changed, then they should cover half if
    that is the only part sold and that is what your warranty covers. Another
    option is a scrap yard unit. Find a donor with low miles if at all

    I'd love to try the fix but my son just doesn't want to do it.. he just
    wants it fixed once and for all.. my guess is though that it is a
    problem that will return after x miles even with a new valve body
    assembly. I think he just wants to get it fixed while he's living at
    home for he has extra money until later when he moves out.
    My answer is.. try it you have nothing to lose!!

    Also it is a simple thing to do. All you need is a new spin on trans
    filter, 4 quarts of Dexron III ATF fluid, and a bottle of trans additive.
    Changing the ATF fluid and filter in S-series cars is actually a lot easier
    than changing the oil. You really do have nothing to lose and the cost will
    be about $25 and an hour of your time.

    The "permanent" fix is to do regular maintenance and change that fluid and
    filter every 25 or 30K miles.
