I believe i am having an issue with my Altima, shifting rough from 1st to 2nd. Pulled a valve body solenoid from another altima to install in mine. Is it possible to use a used solenoid for my car? Several mechanics said i cannot because theyre already programmed for the original car. I want to do the work myself, it isn't difficult to get the valve body out. My concern is with programming.
My car has 135000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. Once a solenoid has been installed in a vehicle, it is linked with the ECU of that particular vehicle. So, in this case, the mechanics you’ve spoken to would be correct. The best solution here is to purchase a new, OEM valve body solenoid for your replacement job on the 2005 Nissan Altima.
