Default PCM and Automatic Transmission Sensor

Hi all!
Looking for some advice here. I have a 2006 PT Touring with 103k miles. Purchased it used and did get the extended after market warranty to help with any issues that may come up.
Check engine light came on and two codes (after the dealership ran diagnostic) PCM and Auto transmission Sensor.

They are calling to see what is covered on my warranty and what would be out of pocket. Anyone had issues with this and any suggestions? I also need to go ahead and fork over the cash to get the timing belt replaced before it becomes an issue.

Update: My warranty is covering "repairing" the transmission. So they wont replace it; just repair the parts. I should have it back by this weekend. Next week I am going to get the timing belt replaced (I just hit over 100k).

I am hopeful that after these two repairs I can get at least 2 years; 50k more miles out of it. *Hopeful*

If they replace the transmission it would probably be a rebuilt/ refirb anyway.
Other wear items may need looked at are lower control arms, and cooling fan.
The cooling fan is upmost importance since it avoids major expense of overheating and head gasket replacememt or worse.
Even if you don't replace the lower control arms it may be a good idea to remove the rear bolt and lub it with neverseize and retorque it. same with the spare tire cage retainning bolt, when I needed it most it wouldn't move.

With a little $ in maint you should have no problem going for 200k
