ASB light has nothing to do with your transmission. You might have a wheel bearing going bad and that is causing your tranny to work a little harder. It would also light up your ASB light.

The ABS in a Sunfire is a very common problem, I would recommend getting it turned off. That improved my car a lot, I'd also get your transmission checked as well.
