You mean Crank Shaft position sensor ? CKP sensor

or they said trans shifting solenoid , can you get me the a fault code number they got ?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
that was it I believe and I can try
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 2 months ago.

was that the code ,DTC P0335: Crankshaft Position (CKP) Sensor Circuit Malfunction

you can check it with measuring resistance

CKP sensor resistance 484 - 656 ohms at 20 °C, 68 °F

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 2 months ago.

be honest with the ckp will not make it not shift

it will make it hard to start or hesitate

are you sure no trans code ?

be great if you get me the phone number

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it wasnt a shop who did the codes it was my friends dad
