The P0700 is a low fluid code. This probably happened when you dropped the driveshaft. The P0888 code is a trans in limp mode. This could be caused by a faulty A/T control relay, bad wiring, solenoid pack, or the trans needs to be rebuilt. Electrical testing needs to be done.

drive shaft didnt come out. just vibrated badly. was hoping there was a "90% of the time its _____." kind of answer. 700 isnt a general code to turn on mil?


I would say if you are over 100,000 miles, odds are that you are in a rebuild situation.


tested electrical , noticed fluid didnt drop much after starting . so i pulled pan and found filter had dropped down from vibration of u-joint breaking.i dont know how much that shortened its lifespan but seems ok.
