When in drive with car accelerating when it should shift up the car will not shift, the rpm's increase car will shift into next gear when you let way off of the accelerator. Fluid level fine. Fluid color fine no burnt smell no leaks. Problem was immediate no past warning signs such as previous slippage, etc.

Check engine is on. Ran diog. P-402 code. Have EGR valve comming. FYI Light has been on several days. Comes back on after clearing. So ordered the EGR.

Try cleaning the EGR valve and port and see what happens before you replace it
