Crumbob,is right,The throttle position sensor will make it idle eratic,but if tranny is slipping,check your fluid level,and if fluid is good,check the Trainsmission solenoid.

does your speedo work? the p0720 is a code for the output speed sensor..when this goes bad the trany will go into limp in mode and not shift out of second gear that's the reason for the high rpm and low speeds...if the output speed sensor is bad the speedo does not work the tcm (trany control module) calculates the speed and and converts it into MPH....and by the way the pcm and the tcm are in one module ...also if the output speed sensor is bad it is good practice to change the input speed sensor at the same time

thanks now i have codes po732 po731 p1790 what do these mean

40

i having trouble shifting gears especially firsst adn second gear

4,735

Hi code p0731 is a gear ratio error code for first gear and p0732 is a gear ratio error code for second gear.....under drive clutches are used for both first and second ...it appears that you may have over heated the under drive clutch pack while driving it in limp in mode while the out put speed sensor was bad...keep in mind the under drive clutches are applied in both park and neutral to anticipate the driver shifting to drive or reverse to soften the shift
