What is the condition of the transmission fluid - what is the color? How many times has it been changed?

It's possible the solenoids are bad.

The computer would have to be reprogrammed, otherwise he'll get a CEL code for incorrect gear ratio. They're picky.
The fluid is pink with a little gray. Both firestone and the transmission shop said it was okay, but recommended changing it anyway. I've never had it changed.
