Pulled out of a parking stall at mall drove about 500 yds at about 35mph when check engine light turned on and lost all gears had to coast into another stall. Moved shifter to park then D, 1, 2, 3rd, and reverse and no engagement. Engine running smooth, plenty of fluid in transaxle, no burnt smell? Any ideas?

As long as your at the mall, grab an OBDII scaneer and plug it in under the dash at the connector, read and post the codes. Could be the solinoids in the tranny, or the control module.

Well I bought an Innova obd2 scanner and it gave me two current codes and 2 pending codes for the llight.

Current codes are
755 -shift solenoid b Malfunction
766-shift solenoid d performance or malfunction.

The pending codes are also the same as above.

Any suggestions now? Should I see a tranny specialist, a mechanic, is this something I could replace myself? And the final question is if I have to have it done what kind of pricing am I looking at? Money is a big issue right now. Does reseting the codes "unstick"something?

Thanks

Reply to your PM: P0755 is a good code, comes up shift solinoid B
766 is not a good code.765 would be shift solinoid D
Try insecting the connector at the transmission for any sign of corrosion, un plug it and have a look.
If it looks OK then you may need a tranny shop!

Had the car towed to a tranny place that our trusted mechanic shops recommended. Total price
3200 fully rebuilt by a Co in North Dakota?
2500 fully rebuilt by current shop
2125 for a used replacement and install

Warranty is 1 year 12K miles on used and 2 year 24k on rebuilts.

Technician tear down found the gears broken in 5 places and initial cause of issue was complete failure of the "pump".

I was told the transmission on this vehicle was only used for two model years and not many out there to use. And if there are one out there would you trust it?

No! I would ask if you can more to the newer design and get away from that tranny altogether.
