When did you first notice the light? Has been on since the work on the transmission?
If this is the case it's possible that the vehicle was started before all the electrical connections were reattached. It's also possible that a connection was forgotten or has came loose after the work. For example if you unplug the one of the fuel injector connection's and start the car it will give you the check engine light and generate an error code. That will stay active even after you plug the injector back in until the code is cleared.

This however is only an assumption due to the recent work. Any engine light and or code should be taken seriously until you can positively ascertain it's cause. Your recourse should be to retrieve the code and identify it's cause.
There are several ways you can do this. First is to retrieve the codes yourself. The steps for this are as follows.

  • 1. Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch.
  • 2. Turn the key 3 times to the on position with in 5 seconds. Do not turn it to the start position.
  • 3. With pen and paper handy record what appears in the odometer window. An example of a code is P0302 or P1479.
If you have any trouble with this you can also get these codes read at places like Auto Zone for no cost. After you have the code or codes you can repost here for a complete definition of the codes and an opinion weather they might be related to the recent work.
I hope this helps.

2005 chevy impala.. transmission slipping or something. this car has about 193,000 miles on it.. im wondering why its slipping (transmission) and if its even worth fixing...???

First, verify the transmission fluid level is correct - look in the Owner's Manual for info. 2nd get a transmission fluid replacement - do NOT do a 'chemical flush' it could make it even worse....just have them drain out ALL the old fluid and put in new fluid. Shouldn't cost more than $100. If you have any Check Engine Lights or other unusual lights on, get those checked out, too.

Per car is worth about $2500 if you sell it yourself; dealer might give your $1500 but only $500 w/a bad transmission. A rebuilt transmission would likely cost $ NOT fix it. 193K miles is a lot on any car especially an Impala. Time a for another car.

The P0700 is a general transmission control fault. It would be very difficult for an individual lacking expensive equipment to figure this out, I would take the vehicle to a transmission shop or chrysler dealer.

They are correct as to the Location of the Sensor and, It would be a Time Consuming and Expensive Repair But, If you are not getting the Red Caution Light I would have the Tranny Flushed and Filled and see if it is not Just Buildup on the Sensor. It could actually Release itself. If not you will eventually have to get a Rebuild Buut, Try the Flush and Fill First.
