anything else I can help with ?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Could it simply be a sensor/switch that is out, causing the rest of the codes to trip???
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

not with those faults.

Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

and its slipping. its only going to get worse.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It just happened "out of the blue". We just drove the thing 2000 miles round trip on vacation two weeks prior without any issues. There has been no issues leading up to this. So everything internally just ups and breaks down altogether? What would be the cause?
Expert:  david craig replied 1 month ago.

you need to have that evaluated by a transmission shop. I can only tell you with that many faults and what those faults are and the fact the transmission is slipping its needs an overhaul

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
As disappointing as an answer that is, I guess that will be all.
