search for how to pull codes from the ECU, or go to autozone and they should scan it for free

No one can help you without knowing the codes, so if you want help get the codes.

Yes, get the codes pulled. It's a 2 minute stop at autozone for free.

Torque converter clutch circuit has something wrong with it. i'm sure jserrano can shed more light on this though. If it drives fine not sure why it would throw that code.

That's an automatic transmission code for the torque converter clutch solenoid valve. The CEL and O/D lights should both be ON. This problem has to do with something mechanically bad inside the transmission and is not electrical in nature. The ATCU calculates the gears based on the transmission's revolution sensor and the engine speed. If it doesn't see the gears shifting or a torque lockup then it'll flag a problem.

And that problem will also make your transmission shift harder. Mine is bad, and let me tell you, going into second is like getting slammed into a brick wall somedays, that bitch is relentless!!
