I sent an email to the guys in Houston. They did not have any easy things to check for.
Right now, car is with a local indie and he pulled all codes from the car. He said there is a generic speed sensor fault and a bad sensor in the coolant thermostat. He also said that there were faults recorded on every module in the car so he has some research to do. I will get a full list later. He is going to do a general check of the car (like check transmission fluid) also.
I realize I do not have the proper tools or the confidence to mess with the transmission.
I will update when I get more definitive answers and the list of codes.
