Question Question on Auto Trannies and warranty coverage -- yes, it's OT.

I've got a CEL on teh Caravan. Pulled the codes, and I seem to be the lucky recipient of:

- Transmission Control System Malfunction
- Shift Solenoid B (2-3) Malfunction

Seems consistent with what le rolling condominium is experiencing... the bitch is stuck in second gear.

Anyhow, I took it over to my dealer today to find out whether it'll be covered under warranty. For the record, it's an MY01 with 80,800km (50,500mi) on the clock.

I was told that I have a 5-year, 100,000km (62,500mi) powertrain warranty on it, and that said warranty covers anything that's internal to the engine, the transmission, and the differential.

I'm taking it in tomorrow morning and I know that the dealer will try to cover as little as possible under the warranty... any tips? Seems to me that a shift solenoid is *internal*, and the tranny control system is prolly malfunctioning because of the solenoid... I'm hoping I'll get away with only having to pay for like... I dunno, tranny fluid or something.

How can I make sure I'm not getting screwed by the dealer? Any insights?
