SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Sratus 4 speed auto transmission

Dave, The P0700 code is a generic fault code indicating the the TCM (transmission control module) has recognized a problem and the P0755 is the indicated problem. I'd recommend you check your transmission external electrical connector for water intrusion and corrosion at the terminals by disconnecting the connector. If nothing appears wrong, I'd then recommend you drop the lower transmission pan and take a look at the residue deposit that is laying on the bottom of the pan. You should only see a relativily minor amount of grayish, black clutch material residing there. Pay particular attention for a gross amount of this or any large particular material, including any metal, either filings or chunks, or any brass or aluminum. If this checks out to be fairly clean, then I'd recommend you replace that "B" solenoid (2-3 shift solenoid) and have the trans. pan and filter replaced.; I'd also highly recommend you have the trans flushed for anyother particular matter that may reside internally inside the transmission. You'll have to have the codes cleared and the transmission relearned for shift feel, at that point.

SOURCE: engine noise

Sounds like a problem with the power valve actuator in the intake manifold collector. I would check with a Nissan dealer first and inquire of any recalls or service bulletins. Might save ya time & money.

SOURCE: auto trans shifting VERY HARD, possible cause?

It could be several things but I will give you a few ideas anyways to try and avoid the costly Ford dealer mechanics. Check your transmission fluid to make sure that it is full and that is still good and red. You may also want to just go ahead and change your transmission fluid but when you do so remove your transmission pan. Inside your transmission pan is your automatic transmission fluid filter screen. Make sure to clean it thoroughly and put back on filling the transmission with new fluid. Cleaning the screen is probably the most likely thing that will help. You also might want to consider using a transmission fluid additive that will help it shift easier. I've had pretty good luck with Lucas's products. Hope this helps. Be sure to let me know how it goes and if you need more help clarifying. Goodluck.

No that hard, but your going to have to drop the Transmission pan, there are two identical solenoid at the back of the valve body with the pan removed.
The "B" (2-3) solenoid is the closest to the passenger side,"A" (1-2) is closest the driver side.I would go ahead and replace both as they are not that expensive.Spring clips hold them in place that can be removed with a small screw driver.
The "slipping" you're noticing,is most likely just the transmission shift pattern getting screwed up due to the malfunctioning solenoid.Probably more like a 1-2-2-1 or a 4-3-3-4 pattern depending on which way the solenoid is failing,or maybe it feels like it is starting out in 2nd or 3rd gear. 

Once you get the solenoid changed and transmission fluid and filer changed, here is a little added performance you can do. Have the Servos replaced with the Corvette servos, the part is only $45.00 and take about 30 min to replace but less for you since you have the truck up on a lift already. 
Good Luck and here is a link for the 4L60E improvement.,com_tech_article/Itemid,/item,6/task,item/

2005 pathfinder will not shift into overdrive

Pull the valve body & clean it

After that, you will have to change the
proper solenoid & as far as I know, they
can not be had individually yet,should be
soon, as that vehicle has been made for 10 or 11 years

The only difference in your 05 & my 2014 frontier, is the
tcm module on mine, is up in the trans fluid & yours is outside

Google the question & see what turns up

Lots on the internet & You Tube Video,I bet the answer
is in many places on how to solve that

Why won't a 2005 Taurus with a fax transmission shift into 3rd gear?

run the fault codes and check for a servo/solenoid fault or a faulty TCM module.

Ihave code p0731 stuck in 1st ratio .. what mean that code?

obviously refers to auto trans , could just need the trans fluid level topping up or even changing , if this does'nt resolve the problem then a more in depth diagnosis would be required at a repair shop as could be the ECU for example but do the fluid checks and go from ther ,keep me posted

Shift solenoid

when vehicle is cold, check your coolant in radiator. make sure its GREEN not milky / light coffee color. If milky, you need new trans and radiator. Nissan extended warrantee for radiators. the radiator cooler fails and coolant will mix with trans fluid and your trans is junk. Nissan has program going where you will pay certain amount of money depending on your milage. start with checking coolant fluid color and let me know.

I have a strong reverse in my 1998 blazer's auto transmission but no foward gears work. Do I need a complete overhaul or change the filter and solenoid?

After making sure trans is full on trans fluid and checks good next try cleaning out the electrical plug, BIG GREY PLUG with lots of wires on the top side of trans, passenger side right next to exhaust. Sometimes they get water in them and short them out causing them to not shift. Also check the fuses inside. Look for shift solenoid. There should at least be one or two. If fuses and plug all check out good it is possible that solenoids are bad. A bad sparg assembly could also cause problem Inside trans. Let me know what you find. If still no forward pull down in first gear and see if it move. If so trans will need to be removed.
