I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
Thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

based on what you have described and the codes you have, I would say that you likely should opt for a full rebuild of the transmission, not just a solenoid kit. This all points to internal wear of various components within the transmission, not just solenoid issues.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
