    Transmission Noise, after replacement. 97

    Transmission Solenoid Noise (or so i am being told), after replacement. 97

    Exchanged the transmission on a 97 Impreza with 177,000 miles with the transmission of a 98 with 70,000 miles. Now when starting and putting in reverse it makes a high pitched whine. The mechanic says it is the solenoid and not a big deal, common with 98 transmissions. Car runs well otherwise. Aside from the fact that I hate strange noises coming from my car I am concerned the Solenoid (or what ever it is) is bad and that is why it is making the noise. Anyone have any thoughts on the matter? Can the solenoid be replaced with out dropping the transmission again? I haven't been able to find anything on the topic of solenoid noise at start up.

    Automatic I take it? I wouldn't know what solenoid it would be, but if it's anything internal dealing with shifting it can become a big issue quick. Sorry I can't be of more help.
