Bad Solenoid Pack?

Took my truck in yesterday because it wouldn't shift after 3rd. TOW/HAUL light flashing. They told me it was a bad solenoid pack. I'm waiting for the next callback with the price. Anyone have this problem or know what it should cost?

I just emailed them about my problem see if he gets back to me great price think ford with my discount wanted $500 to $600..... this is what i got going wrong have you seen this before?????


Been batteling this for months now. This is what i know. I rev it up in park or neutral and go back to drive or reverse and i have no gears. The dip stick shows no fluid when this happens. But it's full to the mark when it's shifting fine. Replaced line control selenoid. Fluid is clean both filters changed still happens. Put it back in to gear rev it back up and it slams into gear. Then shifts fine. Good hard shifts no slipping. Any ideas would be help full. I do have s.c.t. egr delet put in stock mode still same thing. I do have autoenginuity on my laptop. I'm very good with engine problems but just don't know what im looking for with the tranny side of things.....

I hope it doesn't cost too much. The dealer is Broadway Ford in Saint Louis. They have a very good reputation, and they always call with an estimate before they do the work. I'm just glad there was no "mechanical" damage!

The dealership called today with my estimate. He said the valve body was bad? It's a little confusing....yesterday it was the solenoid pack. He said 7 hrs labor, a flush & fill, and new filters. $1,035

I don't know what the labor rate and how much time trouble shooting they have into it seems like a lot of labor money but whatever I Guess (it's a dealer). They called it a solenoid pack and a valve body. That i can see when i was looking into getting parts for mine all the solenoids came in the valve body. Its a electronic valve body nothing like the old days. lol... as a guess maybe 2hr trouble shooting 3hr to change valve body .25 to change inline filter? The link i sent you was what there going to change Ithink there is 9 solenoids in the valve body i replaced the line control solenoid my discount was $135.?? It adds up quite fast. if i had to do over i would do the valve body i found out later thers is an updated valve body from ford and that Might be my problem.... Hope this helps...
