Stop driving it before you make it worse. Get the codes pulled and don't use the free scanners at the parts store, they can't read our codes. If your really lucky it will be something simple and cheap, if not be prepared for a vary expensive transmission replacement. Sucks that the dealer isn't helping you but you have to get that kind of stuff in writing.

Hopefully they can tell you what the issue is. Without codes, you won't know if it's a $0.02 fuse or a $5,000 rebuild.

"The PCM picked up an excessive amount of TCC (torque converter clutch) slippage during normal operation"

Do you have a tranny temp gauge? Just to see if your temps are high?

Sounds like soilinoid pack or TC...

PS, i kow I cant spell

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

I'd at least try to drop the pan do filter change and flush, and new soil. pack....alsot cheaper to start there. If that dont help then trans has to come out (good reason to upgrade )

What would the actual name of the solenoid be and the price for it and a change of filter and fluid cost?
