Could be the shift solenoids, they are located in the transmission and will need to be check at the shop.

Do you think that is the solution how much you think that cost me

Unless you have an exorbitant number of miles on this car, it seems premature to have these kinds of problems.

Do you have over 150,000 miles on the car?

No it's only 96 thousand miles

Actually, 15,000 miles is the upper limit for normal mileage, so, maybe you do have 150,000 miles or more. If that's the case, I would seriously consider the total cost going forward. If it's seriously expensive, like a complete transmission rebuild, then , I would first check out the condition of your engine. Unless the engine is in top notch condition, you're going down the wrong road. I wouldn't throw good money after bad, unless you really thought you would get another 100,000 miles from your car with no engine overhaul.

Chori- OK, my answer still stands, if you cannot get another 100,000 miles without major engine failure, this is a financially bad move, in my opinion.

I am the first owner I buy a brand-new 0 miles

Is this an automatic or manual?

If it's a manual, here's the value of your car, appropriately, I don't know all the options you have. http://www.nadaguides.com/Cars/2006/Chevrolet/COBALT- L4/Coupe-2D-SS/Values

This is NOT good, see this article on replacing the transmission. http://www.cobaltss.net/forums/drivetrain-79/just-found-out-i-need- new-transmission-280978

See this link from car complaints, http://www.carcomplaints.com/Chevrolet/Cobalt/2006/ You may want to weigh your options. I'm sure that some of the recall issues were resolved, but, there's a lot more here.

It's automatic I'm checking the recall see what happens

An automatic transmission rebuild will cost thousands. Don't even consider an exchange transmission, it's not worth it, you will never know what you get. If it's the transmission, you're in a tough situation. The car is really not worth fixing and you won't get much selling it outside of salvage. BUT, considering it's an orphaned car, with a checkered reputation, I would probably get out and find a replacement car. These cars are very problematic and not that safe. Sorry.
