Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if the check engine light is coming on?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it's on constently
Expert:  Fixitman replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. From what you are telling me it sounds like you have a serious internal transmission failure. This is very common on this car. Since the check engine light is on though we need to start there. If you can get the codes read by an auto parts store and bring them to me it would help. Please let me know if this is something you can do. Thank you.

Three codes P1751,P0131, P0730. The transmission does its thing there's no grinding, I know I many need a new tcm, I got a transmission oil change and it drove fine. I don't smell any burning but the computer is just not shifting the gear when I tell it to

I'm thinking it's the transmission selinods if can this be the issue? And if so which one would you recommend?
Expert:  Fixitman replied 1 year ago.

Typically when you get these codes together, not the P0131, but the other two, then you need to check the connection on the shift solenoid assembly for loose or corroded terminals. if they are fine then you should replace the solenoids.
