    I've only serviced one of the transmissions out of the 10 or so vehicles I've owned, and sadly that transmission started slipping 7 years later >.<

Why am i told that they only made trasmission fo two years on a 1998 siverado

contact the manufactures customer service department(on the net) for your vehicle and get the years the transmissions were installed and when they were withdrawn from service. It is possible that the transmission had a limited service life and was replace by an upgraded version with less problems.

If the engine light is not on will the computer pick up codes

Yes, you can get codes without the light being on. They are in a History and although the light may have gone off *(SOFT CODES) then they are still in the history.

How I can Fix P0741 Code - Toyota Corolla 2005

The code means your lockup clutch is not working. You're not going into top gear and the transmission is slipping. This burns the oil, and burns extra gas.

Change the solenoid if it's truly broken, and see if the transmission goes into lockup and clears the error code. If so you've saved a lot. But you need to change the oil, too.

Do the colors on the transmission solenoids of a 2001 BMW 740il E38 engine relate to anything specific?

If any of those solenoids were bad it would not shift at all. If a servo is sticking, that's an indication of dirty fluid. Do not mess with solenoids and change the filter and fluid. After servicing the filter and fluid, perform an OBDII scan of the stored fault history. The scan should reveal any solenoid or speed sensor problems.

I have the exact same problem as the guy who could not keep car running without staying on the accelerator. So where are these air intake tubes, throttle body etc? I want to get to the idle air control...

I had the same problem about 6 months ago. I took it to get it fixed & I was told the problem was carbon build-up. They fixed it in less than 3 hours. I have no clue how to clean off the carbon build-up so I don't have any advice on that. I just figured I'd let you know that you weren't the only one to have the problem of keeping your car running without staying on the accelerator.

03 Cad Deville; just under 63K miles. Trans replaced Mar 09. Trans pblm again Jan 2011 won't shift into R I was told by AAMCO who did rebuilt If no R then they need to take trans apart.. BS A car...

I know this is frustrating for you, not to mention, EXPENSIVE!!! But if you know a way to repair a transmission without taking it apart, I'd like to know how you did it...I could make a fortune! No reverse...No has to come apart.

Transmission stays in first gear

it would cost less to replace the transmission than to have that one rebuilt shop around and see if you cant find a trans for it and have someone put it in for you
