Pull the codes... If you have Tech go to the NAV screen > Messages > Diagnostic Info and it will tell you the codes.
If you have aa Base go to an Autozone..

We can diagnose from the codes.

No need to open a second thread in a completely different subforum for the same problem..

If you could tell us what car you drove, year , mileage, that would probably help as well.

Dtc: P0970

The Code is P0970.

Do I have to go only to a Dealer or any local mechanic would be fine.

Also any rough estimation on how much it would cost.

Seems that there is an issue with the Solenoid C in the Trans..
How is the fluid looking? any records of maintenance?

Check the ATF Level otherwise this will be a Dealership only Part...
You can either try to clean the solenoid or it is malfunctioning which will mean you have to replace it.

If you go to a private shop try to go to a Transmission Shop, Not a general Mechanic.

Thank you so much for all the information.

Since I am worried to drive a long distance will try once with my nearby Gas Station mechanic first and see if I can get a quote first.

Most of the solutions given on the web goes behind changing the Transmission Fluid will try that first.

If i can drive to the Dealer then will check it out at the Acura Dealer too.
