Hows the transmission?

The P0700 code is a generalized code for the transaxle. You will have to find someone with a good scanner to narrow why the code that was set in the computer.

Have you done anything to the car lately like flush the radiator? Anything that happened right before the error code. Their is another thread running with someone that got this code after flushing their radiator. Go to the search function and go to advanced search and search for the code it will give you some more information but it's a vague error message.

Sometimes autozone or pepboys will check it for free with their scanner.

when i bought the car two weeks ago there was a stack of papers of everything done to the car since bought brand new went threw all of that and the flush was done at 85k so i think im good there also there was nothing wrong with the car at all other then the car was sitting for a few months not being drivin but started everyday maybe the old gas that was in the car might over done that cause i just let the car go to empy then filled it up

Try pulling the negative cable off for 10 minutes. That resets the computer. See if the code comes back. Your stepdad should be able to read the code with one of his scanners, when he looks at the connection, he should be able to tell.
