1999 Chevrolet Astro ProblemsCheck Engine Light With Code P1870
Vehicles equipped whit a 4 speed automatic transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.
The outside door handles are prone to breaking—all doors are affected by this condition.
The idler arm, pitman arm, or center steering link may wear and cause excess play in the steering. If any of these components are replaced, the front end alignment should be checked.

We Don't do anything to try to fix it, it turns on by its self. This started about a month ago. It tries to start but it doesn't, engine shakes after I stop turning the key. Thank you
It will allow me program any one of my three remotes, but when I try to program a second remote, it will not work. I am at a loss as to why I can't program my other remotes.
