Wj transmission shifting at 4000 rpm

i have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo, car starts fine and run up to 30 mph, then it wont shift into next gear unit 4000 rpm, car run fine until i get below 30 mph then it hapens again, once it kick in there no problem, i m not hearing any noise from transmission. turned ignition key 3 times gave me one fault code p1762. i brang it to the dealer they told me i need a new valve body, they didnt drop the pan, they just hooked up the scan tool, they told me they got a bunch of faults that the valve body was bad, i had this problem before and had taken it to another jeep dealer 4 years ago, they changed governer solenoid and problem was solved. do you think they were trying to rip me off, they kept telling me that i was going to get stuck on the road, i just got a bad feeling so i left and going to take to an aamco shop for a diagnostics. can someone give some advice on what this problem could be. thank you.

It sounds like the pressure sensor. Thats what that code means, and also your symptoms are leading to the sensor and solenoid acting up. Check your fluid level first and make sure it doesnt smell like burnt oil. If thats fine i would go ahead and change the solenoid and the sensor.
