Hello, how many miles are on this vehicle? Does the scan tool you are using have the ability to look at live sensor data? Does the check engine light flash when it looses power?

Na it is just on it has around 90k miles on it the scan tool was at Oriely auto parts they did a scan for me. I just wanna know if its a possible tranny replacement or not
GMC Mechanic: HDGENE, Master Auto Technician replied 5 months ago

None of those codes shown are transmission codes. P0300 is the only code showing a random misfire. Its possible there is an issue with the transmission range sensor only reading its in manual first gear. This is where a scan tool will come in to diagnose it properly. If it thinks its in manual 1st instead of drive, it will not upshift and wind out in gear. Otherwise it can be due to a lack of fuel pressure/engine running lean or a clogged catalytic convertor. The first codes are for the evaporative emission system and the P0128 is for a stuck open thermostat. If the trans fluid looks badly burnt or black it can be related to the trans itself which would indicate the need for a major overhaul of the trans or a replacement.
