Default Reno transmission-- help!

I have a 2006 Reno that has about 45K on it. The other day when I was going around a turn and I went to accelerate, it started revving. The next day, I noticed it jerked a little when I put it in park and again when I went to reverse. Then, a icon started flashing on the dash to indicate a transmission problem.

I called my dealer from home and he said it sounded like some type of a transmission gear-- he had seen it on other Reno cars lately and it was about $150 to fix it. I really hope it's nothing more major-- and that my warranty covers it if it is. Has anyone had this happen to them?? I am worried I am going to get stuck with a huge bill from the dealership.

sounds like it might be the trans. upgrade. on some of the forenzas/renos there was a problem like this. all they do is reprogram the trans, takes maby an hour. i would look into this before i spend money because the reprograming is free.

Alaner,

Might be a couple things. If fluid is low due to leak. Some pcm updates. Possible internal repair needed which is part of 7/100

is it hard to replace this sensor? I'm having increasing problems with the shifting on my auto trans, jumps between 3rd and 4th all the time. with CEL afterwards saying "3rd to 4th malfunction".

P0783 (3-4 Shift Malfunction) is not a code related to the transmission range sensor. P0705 is the code for the range sensor, but P0783 is a sign of internal failure of the transmission. There is a TSB about it, detailing the repair needed. Since you have an Optra, you'll have to see if you still have powertrain warranty remaining, and if you do, it should cover this repair. If the Chevrolet dealer up there doesn't have access to this TSB (it was released by Suzuki), I'm sure myself or someone else could provide it for you to refer to.
