Recently a loud rapid clicking noise coming from trans. The noise sounds like an injector but louder. Ck. fluid level good and color good. Took car to Trans. franchise and there were no fault codes. The noise would not be present in P or N. When shifted into R you would hear the noise for brief moment then it would stop. The head mechanic said that I had one of the shift solenoid's was going bad and would cost $450 to check it out. Can someone tell if that is the problem or is the trans. on its way out. Thanks
i replaced the coil pack now the mechanic says it is the ignition module coil i want to know where is it located on my car
