You may be able to pull a trouble code with a better OBD reader, it might not be much help knowing the code.

Usually, the auto trans problems are related to the electric solenoids in the valvebody. Solenoids A and B the most common, but there are a few more. The testing involves plugging a diagnostic computer into it and forcing the trans solenoids to change state and such.
