Default TAmission help P0700 P0731 P0733

Hello, I have a 2004 Pt Cruiser with about 108k on it i was driving today and noticed i faint whining sound coming from what sounded like the trans when i was in first gear. it wasn't present when i was in any gear above that. As i turned around to go home it slipped out of gear had trouble accelerating and i couldn't get it above 35 mph. I scanned it and got the codes p0700 p0731 and p0733 and i was just wondering if it could be some sensors or did my trans just die on me? Any help you guys could give would be great these forums have helped me fix a lot of stuff on my car

If you need anymore info let me know

The Cruiser automatics have a "limp mode" function whereby the trans will stay in 2nd gear if the trans electronics sense that additional damage may occure with "normal" opperation. Limp mode can trigger with minor issues as often as not. The fix may be a minor one and not the whole trans. I searched the trouble codes and didn't see anything I could put my finger on to tell you. If you have the same size tires all around (you haven't made any changes?) a trans shop or dealer service should be able to give you a detailed answer. Don't pull all your hair out just yet until you find out what's happened. A common repair is the solinoid pack, a couple hundred dollars that you can do yourself. Not fun to pay for but better than a new trans.
