Transmission problem error code P175D

Recommended Posts

Hi new member here with a 2009 dodge journey in the UK, it has a 2.0 VW Passat diesel engine so a little different to the ones you have over there I'm led to believe, recently I've had a problem with the car not shifting into reverse and this problem has got progressively worse to the point now where the car won move at all and the check engine light came on, the code I found was P175D which relates to control solenoid circuit 3 performance, I've recently spoke to my cousin in Chicago's mechanic who says inside the gearbox are 4 or 6 actuators one of which will have gone bad and I'm to change all of them while I'm in there due to the amount of work involved getting to them, has anyone else experienced this problem before or carried out this repair who wouldn't mind sharing their experiences  thanks for any help

Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately no diesel experience here. Hopefully there's a local member with a similar engine/experience. Good luck.

Took out the multi plug feeding the solenoid s and took off the black plastic side mounted sump tray, now I'm face with what you see in the pic which has about 25 torx screws holding it in place,  this looking familiar to anyone?

A little further on today, I removed the valve body and split it to find the control solenoids, I the did a continuity test across them all which came out as normal, then I removed them and blew them out with air and the channels from which they were removed hot blasted aswell after that I used a 12 volt supply to manually check they were all working which they were, was hoping to find a problem with at least one of them but it wasn't to be, hopefully I will get lucky and I have removed a blockage with the air
