Anybody have any luck on this? My 98 is shifing hard and sometimes it dies. When this happens the check enine light comes on with code P0770. Shift Solenoid E Performance or Stuck Off. I am thinking it is not worth fixing if this is a 2 to 3 k fix.

I have a 2002 Monte Carlo SS with 135K miles. Ever since it had about 20K miles on it you could hear a ticking or tapping sound after it warms up.
Sound is only noticeable at idle. If you drive off it seems to quit. It is like a rattle.
No lose of power or mileage. Everything about this car has been great just this noise.

I am also having this same problem with my 2003 Monte SS. My husband check the fluid last night and found bubbles in it but it was full. I didn't see an answer to your "caused by heat" comment. What do you mean by that?

The problem is not the 3800, it's that the 3800 is too strong, it's the transmission that wasn't built good enough to combine w/ the 3800. There is a fix for this though. The 4t65 trans can be upgraded to a Heavy-Duty version. That's how they can super charge this engine without tearing the tranny in half. http://www.milzymotorsports.com/
#25 of 25 1998 Chevy Monte Carlo Z34 Transmission problem
Jul 26, 2011 (5:55 pm)
I've got a 1998 Chevy Monte Carlo Z34 automatic with front-wheel drive.
The other day the transmission decided to get mad at me. Here's the situation -
When I was at a stop then accelerated, the car would shake a little and take a second to shift and move forward. Then the next day I reversed out of my driveway then put it in drive and it was as if it was still in neutral. The RPMs would go up but it wouldn't drive. I had to take it down to 1st gear to move forward. Reverse continued to work. I found that I could manually shift the gears up by speeding up then shifting to 2nd then speeding up to go to drive, but then when I hit the brake, I had to start back at 1st or sometimes it worked from 2nd. The car is not a manual shift so that didn't seem safe to keep doing. It has plenty of fluid and I can't find a leak.
Any ideas on what it can be and what I should do?
I didn't plan on keeping the car much longer as I've wanted to get something new. I've had it for over 10 years and kept up with maintenance on it. Its otherwise in decent shape.
