I have a 2004 Buick rendezvous, the suv goes into reverse…

Second opinion] I have...

Second opinion] I have a 2004 Buick rendezvous, the suv goes into reverse just fine but no drive or 3, 2 and 1 work most of the time. I changed the oil and filter yesterday and no change. There were a few small metal flakes in the pan but no big chunks or anything out of the ordinary would a bad TCC cause this or is it something worse? I just don�t want to spend time replacing sensors if it�s jot the problem. Thanks in advance for your help.

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

Transmission control solenoid and there is only one code I can�t remember the number but it was an exhaust code

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Rendezvous yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes and I changed the transmission fluid and filter hoping it would help and it did not

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I also checked the 10 and fuse for the solenoid under the hood and it was good
