Thanks fellows!!!
I knew the main problem was the kick down cable, or should i say what started this whole mess!!!

the cable is 50 bucks but the shop wants to charge me 200 total to replace it, but if he rebuilds the tranny everything is included in one price, thats why i havent "fix" that yet cause i figure it will be cheaper if just did it that way.

If i fix the cable, change the solenoids to fix the code P1757 and P1762 Flush trans, New Filter Maybe the car can last me the mechanic said, and tht will cost me about 500-600 to do. or he said i can pay him 2k and have him rebuild the whole thing and fix and install.. i know is 1500 more.. but what if i change it all, 3 weeks later goes bad and now i have to spend an extra 2k plus the 500 600 i already spent!!

so hard to find a trustworthy mechanic!

You can get a kickdown cable for about 30 bucks. get the P/n from a dealer or maybe someone here has it. then go to ebay and buy one.

My tranny has a little metal in the pan everytime I take it off. Go by the assumption your mechanic was trying to get your money.

Try the cable first . Then all you have if the tranny drops later is a new cable you needed to begin with.

you really have to make sure the cable is adjusted within 1/8" of being dead nuts on.

though other sensors can cause similar issues, having the kick down cable not modulating the pressure is causing your shifting issues and your trouble codes.

So i went to a different "shop" today. and they told me they can:
Replace cable
Replace solenoid and governors for errors P1757 and P1762
Flush the trans and put a new one..
For 650.00 what do u guys think??
He also said that if problem comes back within 90 days he can put the 650.00 towards the 1600 Rebuild..

Thanks again and any new coments are always welcome!

Why not try the cable first, clear codes and see what happens.

the kick down cable modulates line pressure, the sensors tell the computer what the line pressure is. if the sensors are bad they'll throw those codes, if the kick down cable is not adjusted correctly or is missing it'll throw the same codes.

Anyone trying to give you a "new" tranny for $650 is gonna screw you in the end. Kickdown is easy to do with a few tools, its detailed in the Haynes manual.
