Have you scanned it with a scanner that can access the transmission? transmission codes are not always picked up the a regular OBDII scanner

Another thing is possible build up of carbon in the EGR system, that requires removal of the EGR and a lot of time with a heavy pipe cleaner style brush scrubbing the tube clear

I passed on to my mechanic about scanning trans and there is a code but has not told me what it was this is what he said "I can see if my guy has a flash update for the code that is in there" Billydsr
