torque converter clutch solenoid codes!

Yesterday I got a check engine light on mommy way back from the beach. I got p 0700. I bout it to autozone and they told me torque converter, clutch solenoid. They also said it was a dealer part. Is it safe to drive to and back to practice? Ivr been doing so...Where do I find these parts do I can't l can fix this?

Okay man, I'm about to give you some really crappy news. I got the exact same code, and my grandpa has been a transmission mechanic for 50 years. If your torque converter locks up, you're not driving anywhere. He told me all you can do is drive it till it dies and replace it. He also told me that basically I could buy all the electronics for the transmission, like solenoids and sensors, and they cost about $500 to replace. After doing all of those, there is no guarantee something else won't go bad. I found a transmission with 69k for $150. If I were you, I'd just go get a low mileage or rebuilt transmission.

Do not believe autozone when they say that they got an actual code from a P0700. A P0700 is a generic code telling you that you need to read the tranny codes. The code reader at autozone can not do that. You need a DRB3 reader to find out the ACTUAL code.

Is it broken?

Well if he says he gave you that code, then he did. But I still stick to my initial statement. You're in the same boat as me. New tranny time.

It still has a problem though... Drive it till its dead, but don't forget about it or you'll be stranded. I'd buy a cheap tranny to keep on the side just in case.

If you can find one with low mileage it will be fine. Getting Your's rebuilt would be like $2000, while you can find a 50k mile tranny for $150.
