Default Question for Transmission experts

My 2014 Silverado 1500 starting acting up every now and then like not shifting smoothly seemed like a little hesitation when it needed to shift. I took it into a transmission shop and they said I need a new transmission. They hooked up the computer to it and the codes it gave are Transmission control system malfunction and Pressure control solenoid C performance or stuck off. Not sure if anybody has experienced similar issues and has any advice? I would hate to spend 4-5k on new transmission when maybe it doesn’t really need it. Thanks

Two questions.


How many miles on it?


How many time have you serviced it?

Also, I’d get a second/third opinion at different shops unless you have a trusted mechanic.

I’d be worried that the transmission shop just wants to make some money.

121k miles and it was always serviced at the recommended times.

I would look into what those components are and if they can be replaced/repaired without removing transmission from vehicle. Would also do a Google search of the symptoms and see if they jive with the mechanic's diagnosis. If the tranny has to come out and requires a major amount of disassembly, might as well go through it.

what motor is in the truck that would narrow down what trans you have in it?
It could be easily serviceable as a 4l65e or a nightmare of a 6l80e
Also what shop did you have check it out?

If it was a "chain" tranny shop, especially a certain one in particular, I wouldn't believe a word they say.

Agree

Packs do go bad and freeze up if they are not given fluid from the trans body. I’ve froze up E4OD to where every gear was recede
