Erratic Shifting of the Automatic Transmission on Buick Rendezvous

The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

hard shifting. feels like it just won't go at take off and then all of a sudden it engages. Then this morning, it did this and started making a really loud noise too.
Erratic . Shifting and speedometer does not exceed 20 mph, even though I am traveling in excess of 20 mph. When symptoms appeared, we had the taken the car to AAmaco to have it checked out. They stated the transmission had to be replaced. The symptoms have occurred twice since the repair. Now the vehicle is going to the dealer

Hard shifting was the start of the issue, mostly between 1st and 2nd gear. Check engine light came on, had it checked, no codes reported. Check engine light kept going on, then off, finally the transmission kicked the bucket at 160,000+ miles. $3,300 estimate for repair (new/rebuilt Jasper transmission). It actually kicked a hole in the transmission casing and leaked most of the fluid out on the tow to the repair shop.
