Question about 2000 Mazda 626
When driving over 60 mph on the freeway, the rpm dial jumped and the car lurched forward. It was like the car was searching for a gear or down shifting. I was told that the pressure solenoid circuit was open and would have to be replaced. I had the work done, but when I test drove the car with the mechanic in the car with me, it did the same thing. I left the car with them again so they can figure out what is wrong. Does this mean I need a new transmission? I only have 46K miles on the car and I am the original owner.
If the shop ran a test that coded the pressure switch they should not charge you for replacing a good part with a good part. If the part is regulated by a vacuum line, the shop should check the vacuum source. You may be alright with the shop because they tried to fix only what was wrong instead of the whole transmission.
This to me is a good sign. At 60 you are in top gear and/or overdrive. This limits the search to an area inside the transmission.

The pressure control solenoid is a electronically controlled valve inside the transmission. With that low of mileage you more than likely have a bad connection at a plug in Or some other type of wiring issue. It is possible that the solenoid is bad, even less likely a PCM (computer). You should not need a new traqns unless it has damaged somthing internally, but I doubt that. Good Luck
