Torque Conv. Clutch solenoid code keeps coming up

(1998 Mercury Villager)
Repair or not repair? The car has 113,000 miles. Has not has any problems until now. They tell me this is the code, but it may not be the total problem and they will not know until they open it up and see. Considering the age of the car is it worth checking into and repair (and maybe opening up Pandora's box)?

Once a vehicle gets up in age there is always this issue of cost vs value of the vehicle when the cost of a big repair is needed. Some of my customers will spare no expense, others will trade it in with no issues, but most of them will agonize over what to do. I usually tell them to weigh sentimental value with what your check book can afford. You may want more information before you make a decision, so further diagnosis might be in order first and a decision after more facts are gathered.
