2004 Cavalier: liter..automatic transmission..overdrive it slips…

Customer Question
I have a 2004 Cavalier...
I have a 2004 Cavalier 2.2 liter, 4 speed automatic transmission. This car shifts too quick from lower gears to drive and when it goes into overdrive it slips. When you shift the transmission manually it is fine and no slip at all.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

P0455 and that is the only code it sets. We have cleared this code but it keeps coming back. I have driven the car trying to set codes it still shifts quickly but no slip. Is it possible the shifting solenoids may not set a code and still be bad?

Chevy Mechanic: Tim West, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
Have you checked the fluid for the transmission? I am not sure why it wouldn't set a code, but it sounds like a transmission mechanical issue. How does the fluid look?

This one has no dip stick so we will service the trans and take a look at the filter & fluid as it comes out. I will let you know.
