Yumie,

Pussy is right.

I had my valve body cleaned as well. Basically once the oil sump is removed, and the valve body can be detached by removing some screws.

As for the valve body, it is made of two pieces of iron or aluminium block. Once the two pieces is opened up you could see the hydraulic flow lines with the springs. It actually controls the gear shift via hydraulic pressure. TO clean it, just soak it in petrol or diesel, then manually brush it. Then use compressor blower to blow off the dirt and leave it to dry.

I paid RM 300 if I remember correctly for mine. All less than a few hours job.

Cheers


Bro,

What is the purpose of doing this valve body soaking and cleaning? Is it done to ensure smoother shifts between gears?

Hi Guys, Need your advice. I have a problem with my E46 328, I need to get the auto transmission valve body serviced and need to change the reverse gear solenoid. Can anyone suggest a trusted workshop where I can get it done? One mechanic I asked says not worth changing solenoid or servicing and to just get a reconditioned vavle body.

Thank you. Any idea what the solenoid costs nowadays? I've read the posts, way back in 2010 happened to be around 1000, what about now? Jarrance, Al Bundy and Pussy, Iread that you changed your solenoids in 2010. Is it worth doing it? Or getting a reconditioned valve body is better? I have read that the E46 328 has the GM gearbox, which is quite bullet proof. I dont intend to change to manual as I have do a bit of city driving and the car is my daily driver. I would really appreciate feedback on this. Thanks Sifus
