is this a 4L60E transmission ?

are there any codes set in the computer at all ?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
5.7 engine with a 4L60E transmission. there was one for mass airflow and he thought a code of PO751.. When he replaced the A&B solenoids one valve popped out & the other did not. Does not remember which one.
When I am driving it and I shift down to 2nd it revs up .

Do you have any problems with the transmission staying in over drive when you get up to 45-50 mph?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Sometimes it goes into 4TH but not always. Hard to tell if it just drops down while cruising.

It sounds like the band is slipping. This can be caused by a leaking servo, or a burnt band.
