It's unfortunate, but the auto in these cars is related to the extreme failure prone CD4E.

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.
