It barely moves in "Drive" and it sounds as if its governing

Code P0750 is solenoid A circuit failed to provide voltage drop across solenoid.

Code P0743 is solenoid voltage drop failed as well.

You need to check all wiring connections to tranny if they are all intact then pinpoint test needs to be done and all voltage signals from TCM to solenoid pack.

 

let me know if you need more info.

what about p0962
Auto Mechanic: PAVLIN, Technician replied 8 years ago

EPC solenoid shorted to ground

Electronic pressure control. you will need scan tool to check solenoid or go manual and inspect every wire for short to ground between computer and solenoid or solenoid itself.
