Question about 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
It certainly sounds as though the brake fluid had been contaminated with some form of oil, probably mineral oil.
It is potentially a seriously big and expensive job to sort out as it is possible the oil has found it's way into the brake system threatening every rubber component including the hoses.
Ideally every rubber component should be replaced for the sake of long-term safety and reliability and all the pipework flushed. It would be considerably cheaper to obtain service kits for the master cylinder, calipers, etc. but there would be a great deal more work involved.
If I was faced with the problem I would replace the master cylinder or fit a service kit and then after draining the system and purging it with compressed air I would check each caliper for normal operation. If one seemed stiff or tight I would dismantle it for inspection and if there is indication of contamination the seals and the flexible hose to that wheel should be replaced.

Testimonial: "Wow. This is old but you nailed it. Don't know what it was contaminated with but that is how I fixed it: new master cylinder, new calipers, all new rubber hoses, new pads and went ahead and put new rotors on. Man I miss that car. Thanks for taking the time to answer."

Some brake pads have a small pin sticking up for the e brake that pad must be on the outside when not installed for the e brake or the caliper will not push it out straight. Remove the pads and check for wear on the caliper face and make sure you have them installed correctly I put a pad in backwards once it worked but made a noise

All these code's are to your transmission, your mech needs to do more then pull code's, he needs to look at date on sensor to transmission before opening.
P0740 - Torque converter clutch solenoid circuit
P0758 - Shift solenoid (B) electrical
P0785 - Shift timing solenoid
P0761 - Shift solenoid (C) performance or stuck off
I would try Trans - X first pores right in to trans.

Use fishing line to remove the lettering. If you get the line under the double sided tape on one side, just gently drag the fishing line down the rest of the emblem and it should remove it. You'll have sticky residue left over on the surface, but it can be removed with a bit of elbow grease
