2009 chevrolet Malibu 4 cyl. 6 speed transmission problem.

Customer Question

2009 chevrolet Malibu 4 cyl. 6 speed transmission problem. The car runs for about 10 minutes then the transmission disengages. I can turn key off and restart the engine and the car will run for about 5-10 minutes again. Wondering if it can be the TCM transmission control module or solenoid in transmission?

I am very sorry for the long wait

does the check engine light come on when this happens ?

do you know if there are any codes in the TCM or the ECM ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no check light. just an engine code that was there long ago about crankshaft.

I can go buy a code checker at autozone if this helps?
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

we just need to see if there are any TCM or ECM codes set as it matters basically if we have an internal transmission failure happening or is it a control issue causing this issue
