Common issues:

1)Malfunction of solenoids – this transmission employs solenoids to control many of its functions, including the gear shifting process and operation of the torque converter lock-up. The simplest and method of testing solenoids is to use the ohm meter, which measures solenoids resistance.

2)High chance of overheating: like any other automatic gearbox, the 5R55E is subject to overheating, especially if it is exposed to severe operation conditions. Overheating frequently leads to the transmission failure, therefore transmission repair specialists often recommend installing transmission coolers, which help to cool down the transmission.
