This is usually a PCM / TCM problem, replacement, wiring repairs, or reprograming is usually the repair. Dealership is your best option for a qualified Diagnosis /repair.

SOURCE: Check Engine light on and transmission will not shift from low.

P0700 is a code for the Transmission Controller or TCM (Transmisison Controller Module). P0755 is a code for the 2-4 Shift Solenoid Circuit.

If you have no mechanical experince, have a friend that is familiar with working on cars check the TCM connector and wiring and make sure all is good there. Make sure the connector terminals are good and there is no corrosion on them. If all is good there, then there could be an internal transmission issue.

P1494 is the code for an evaporative systems or EVAP leak. It could be something as simple as a faulty gas cap or it could be a crack, or leak in the evap canister or evap lines. Simple start would be to replace the gas cap and see if that helps any. They are cheap and if it clears that code thats one less you have to deal with. If its not the gas cap the only other way I know of to isolate where the leak is happening is to have a smoke test.

SOURCE: where do i put transmission fluid in my 2006 Saturn Vue?

If you have no leaks dont worry about it. Just get it serviced if its time. Alot of cars are this way now. You need to be under the car to drain and fill. My BMW is this way

SOURCE: my hyundia elantra check engine

P0700 Transmission Control System Malfunction,,, I couldn't find an 885 code number, But I think it has to do with the tranny also. The first thing I would do is check the fluid, then the fuses, other than tearing out the transmission there is not much you can do. I would go to a tranny shop, not the dealer. If you could find another car like yours, or buy another computer at the junk yard, try that, the TCM is mounted on the wall next to the driver, usually, not positive where yours is, check it out. Hope this helps.

2002 saturn engine codes p0305,p0421 & p1818, what do i have to do to fix them?

Start with a tune up and change your fuel filter. Check your plug wires or better, replace them. The p0421 code has to do with the cat. Also, install spark plug anti foulers, you can get them at your local auto parts store. Follow the spark plug link. As for p1818, have this code reset at a reliable shop preferably a transmission shop. Ask around and some of your friends for their recommendations as to where you can take your car to to have the trans control module reset without the shop trying to tell you you have to fix something, ie shell out the big bucks. tell them aLl you want is to have the code and trans reset, NOTHING MORE. Sometimes this code comes up false. so have it reset after you take care of the tune up etc. this code should be reset using a transmission code reader.

Loss of power, transmission issues

code p0700 refers to transmission control system/MIL --malfunction===causes --wiring ---TCM (1)
code po740 refers to torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid--circuit malfunction===causes--wiring--TCC solenoid--ECM/TCM (transmission control module) (again)
code p0871 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor C -range/ performance problem==causes---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM /TCM (yet again)
code p0734 refers to gear 3 ratio (po374 is gear ratio 4) incorrect ratio===causes --wiring--TR sensor/switch--shift solenoids--transmission mechanical fault (causes are the same for po733&734)
code po846 refers to transmission fluid pressure (TFP) sensor B-range/ performance problem===causes ---wiring--poor connection--TFP sensor--ECM/TCM (again). Give the clutch a miss as you still have 1st gear and if the clutch is not working you will not be going any where. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal mechanical failures (pump ). The rest are sensors are wiring connections , sensor and TCM. My bet is the TCM unit. Have it checked out. What ever you do treat any suggestion of a new transmission with a grain of salt until you are shown proof positive that you need one.

Car is still drivable, but code P0700 is coming up... is this repairable??

The p0700 is a generic code for a transmission issue. If there is a Auto Zone around your area, have the car scanned for any DTC codes since it's free of charger there. Check the transmission fluid level after going for a drive to warm it up. Make sure that the transmission fluid is not low and that it's not burnt. If your due for a transmission service, take it to a transmission shop to have the transmission fluid and filter changed. Ask them to hook up the tech 2 scanner on the car to look for any DTC codes that indicates why the P0700 was triggered. Good luck and hope this helps, most transmission shop will scan for free of charger if your getting the transmission serviced there. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
