Doesn't the 94 have the all hydraulic transmission with no solenoids? A442?start with solenoids. they are super cheap and fairly easy to install. takes longer to drop the pan than to change them out.

the ones i have bough,t from the links i put above, have all come new in a white paper box. they were dry and looked brand new like any other part. nothing was wet in a bag.I just bought 4 (what I think are) new solenoids for my 94. Is it unusual to have what looks like ATF in the bag with the "new" solenoid?
Thank you and I just want to be sure as I don't want to seal up the pan then discover the parts were bad.A little ATF keeps them lubricated and preventing rust. For the price you paid it would not be cost effective labor wise for someone to pull used parts from a transmission.
