97 auto trans problems

Over the course of two weeks I started to notice hesitation shifting out of first. It progressively got worse until I decided it was too risky to drive.
Yesterday I back the car up and it wouldn't hardly get into first gear on d4 when I tried to put it back. Also it was idling at 2k.

I tested the shift solenoids by jumping them with the car battery. Found a weak/bad one and it's the SAME one I replaced from Autozone 2.5 years ago. They are replacing it for free. Im installing it tomorrow morning with fingers crossed. I'll let you know how it goes.

I have always driven manual transmissions (my 97 wagon has a manual), so I can't offer any advise. Anyways, good luck!
