replaced the one at the very front haven't changed the others. Most of my online research seems to center on transmission pressure solenoid being the culprit.

No, I only have the basic code reader OBD II. WIll that provide a transmission scan?

ok the pressure solenoid is most likely your problem but I would like to se you check for code before replacing it . it is very common for the solenoid to go bad but they sometimes set codes

can I use a store bought reader to check it?

n​o you need a ready good one to do that, it will run you a lot more then just having a shop checking for the in the trans computer

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I would like to change it myself if not too terribly difficult. Can you provide step by step procedure along with the OEM part number?

your best bet if you don't want to pay is to replace the solenoid pack
