So this past Monday I get a phone call saying that my car was ready to be picked up and that they can't figure out why it is slipping. They said they keep getting some error code they don't recognize and that the slipping I am feeling is caused by the computer not keeping the settings of the transmission/torque converter. They said after the car is turned off the computer will not remember the settings. So I picked the car up and sure enough it is still not acting right. It seems like the transmission is shifting late and this is causing the slipping feeling. Like when I'm traveling at about 40 MPH and my RPM's are up around 1800 and I gently step on the gas and at around 42 MPH I notice the hard shift and my RPM's drop to about 1500. I have been asking around for advice about this and I had someone tell me it could possibly be a speed sensor. I ran the on-board computer diagnostic tool and came up with the following codes: PC0603, PZ1552, IP1552, PZ2476, AC1348, RS0030, PZ1971, PZ2473, PZ2472. And RS0038. The only current code was RS0038 which I believe is an electronic ride level control error code. Anyways, I am looking for advice on what to do, I'm worried that this slippage problem will eventually lead to other problems and I want to get it fixed ASAP.
