So, what'd you do/replace???
Just the ocv. Good thing about being a tard and cleaning the wrong bank..new seals and super cleaned solenoids
And to help future guest of this problem...the following will be helpful
When you pull the solenoid out..the seal/OR PART OF IT does not come out with it, if it does it broken in two pieces. The seal stays in the head. If part of it come out /black circle ring stuck on solenoid/ , take a utility knife and cut one or two slices carefully to the seal left in the head. Get a new one p#12593717. Best and fastest way is dealership chevy or gmc..my chevy one didnt have it, only like 10$...not a part store around had one...buy in advance. I used a sturdy flat head screwdriver to pop it out of the head after cutting it. Be careful not to drop anything in the head while doing this...it was a pain in the ass.
I guess i could also suggest to maybe spray the solenoid area with some penetrating oil before attempting to remove them to keep them from breaking. I didnt even think of it while i was working on it...could have possibly saved a few bucks
