worse case i say is what was mentioned above just have a sticky solenoid. 180 for the kit then l;abor to put it in.
I do notice that the fluid is high basically at the hot level in the mornings but clear reddish.....will have the codes by the weekend.

that's an OBDI port, you don't need it.

OP just follow these instructions.

Default Got The code!!

Again, Thanks again for all the guidance. I just got the code and its only one:

63 - Open or short circuit in no. 2 solenoid valve

So looks like as most people have indicated its a bade solenoid. So now for the repair I am thinking to just find a good mechanic and let him do it. So I think the steps should be to drain the tranny fluid....replace the solenoid tranny filter and gasget. The part looks like to be in the $180 and would appreciate letting me know how long the labor should be? Also, if anyone knows a good mechanic in the San Francisco Bay area I would appreciate a contact.

THANK YOU ALL and hopefully one day i can give back the favor!!!!!
