Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift. Removal and dis-assembly of the transmission will be required to replace the broken 35R wave plate. It is also extremely important that all debris from the failed part be cleaned from the transmission while it is disassembled in order to try and prevent future problems.

started shifting hard out of 3rd and 5th gear then check engine light came on. Codes where P0700 and P0716 took it to the dealership and they said it was the 3-5-R waveplate. It was covered under the powertrain warrenty

Vehicle started jerking and was making a noise, we took it in to the dealer. We were told that it was the purge valve and rack and pinion. We replaced the purge valve, but the jerking was getting worse. We took the vehicle to a automotive repair shop. The traverse was scanned again and now we have P0716 and P0717 fault codes. Waiting to see what are next step is going to be.
