2001 Chevy s10 Tansmission

I have a 2001 Chevy s10 and the automatic transmission started acting up. It was running fine then one day I was stopped at a light and when I went to accelerate it struggled to take off. Once up to speed it seemed to not want to shift into 5th and the rpms were running very high. I took it to a firestone and they ran a diagnostic on it and it said the 4th and 5th sylenoids were going out. They dont do trans there so it wasnt very helpful as far as a price to fix it, and I would like to avoid paying money just for a quote. Can anyone tell me how much this would cost or if they even gave me the right diagnosis? I dont have a lot of money to fix it so saving anything I can would be great. I appreciate any info people may have.

First of all we need to know what engine you have, is it the 2.2L or the 4.3L? Each has there own transmisson. Every shop price varies just like anything else. Also transmisson shops in general have a reputation for claiming parts need to be fixed, when sometimes they don't or worse yet they just don't replace them. I would find a reputable transmisson shop and go from there. I personally would not rebuild yours. I would drop it and replace it with a low mile used one, you can get one for allot less than repairing yours, and theres none of the typical In and out in and out that allot of times happens when fixing an auto tranny. What state are you located in? I Personally have purchased 40+ transmisson from a shop here in NYS, they include a warranty and the price is unbeatable. If interested let me know. I realize this doesn't fix your current transmisson problem. There could just be an issue with solnoids them selves. Sometimes you can activate the solnoids with a good OBDII scanner a few times and they will be fine. If it comes down to rebuild or replace, heres one vote for replace.

You have a 4L60E whick is controled by your ECM. It sounds like you need and new transmission, the sun gear in it has failed and is the weak point on this transmission. 
When you get a new transmission have them to a corvette servo upgrade. The part is only $45.00 and the shop should know about the upgrade. It will make your truck shift a lot more firmer but last longer.

Good luck and hope this helps

When idoling in park my automatic trans makes a high pitched buzz

Check the transmission fluid level, if that is ok have the transmission fluid and filter changed. Sometimes the filter can fall on the transmission pan and can cause problems. Worst it's your front pump going bad. look for bubbles on your dip stick when checking your fluid and that's a abd sign, Good luck
