what are the codes you have?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I get 141, 167, 557, and while moving slow the car jerks quite hard, and twice already I've gotten a TRANSMISSION MALFUCTION on the dashboard and it goes into safe move and would not change gears until I stop and turn off the Neigbord and turn it back on, then works fine for a while, until it happens again. Is happening at normal operating temperature, and usually in traffic or on an uphill
