The Fiero Store seems a little high on the price of these items but I haven't found them elsewhere.

Thanks for any help.

TFS gives you a 10% discount for being on PFF---but you can also go to rockauto

Any tranny shop should have it.

That's where I get them.

RockAuto.com?
GMPartsDirect.com?
FieroStore.com?
local auto parts store?
local GM dealer?
local transmission specialty shop?

A GM dealer or a transmission specialty shop may be the only places you're going to find the side cover gasket, but it's not that expensive.

Thanks a bunch for all the help. I ordered the solenoid and side-cover gasket from Rock Auto.
Could not seem to find the pressure switch. I thought I would go ahead and replace the pressure switch while I have the side-cover off.

I notice the AC Delco solenoid (#8689901) has extra wire and connectors on the ends, the other solenoids just have short leads and a wire connector on the end (which means you'll be cutting into the original wires and making a connection). Usually I'd not want to do that because it's just another place for a possible failure, however, is it a pain-in-the-ass to route the wires and make the connections if I order and use the AC Delco solenoid when installing the part???

Also, I'm a little confussed about the "pressure switch". Is this also refered to as a "3rd gear switch". I'm having trouble finding that part anywhere (I did find it as a pressure switch at the Fiero Store, but wanted to make sure it was the same thing as the 3rd gear switch...).

The pressure switch is the 3rd gear switch and yes it is a pain in the rear to get your fingers in there, between the valve body and the case, to mess with the wiring, I ended up cutting and splicing even with the ACDelco kit... wasn't really a big deal and the connectors already installed for the pressure switch was nice as well.

On Rock Auto:
VICTOR REINZ Part # W39368TC - Side cover gasket
ACDELCO Part # 8689901 - TCC soleniod

Funny that the pressure switch is hard to find... that was easy when I did it 10 years ago... I had to go to a tranny shop to get the solenoid. LOL
