It is a 2008...

It is a 2008 Saturn Vue XR. It is giving a P0700 P0752 code. It shifts to a fail safe while driving. The problem just occurred. The first response was to check Transmission level and it was low. After putting some fluid in the car ran fine until this afternoon when it did the exact same thing as yesterday. One difference is this time I was not able to use the manual shift.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

I had not noted any leaking BUT after I had the problem I did notice a couple of drops which appear to be trans fluid. But it could have been from the effort to put fluid in.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your VUE yourself? What have you tried so far?

The fluid. I hope it is something electronic and accessible and I will fix it The trans is 198,000 miles old

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes, The problem started yesterday after help my daughter move. The load was not unusual heavy. The problem started again today after a load but the load was lifter than yesterday

Hello, what engine is in this VUE?

3.6

Ok this is most likely a shift solenoid issue. Attached is a pinpoint test that goes into detail for testing the solenoid, but this is why it puts it into a failsafe mode. Long as its full of fluid and it doesnt smell burnt, replacing the shift solenoid may help this concern.
