Okay then, where is the best place/cheapest $$ place to get deeper into to finding what codes I have besides 0700 key dance code?without reading codes you don't know what the problem is.
replacing the transmission would probably get rid of the code too. but that's hardly the way to repair things.
if it's solenoids, replacing the sensors will do nothing. and if it's speed sensors, replacing the solenoids will do nothing.
find the codes and repair what is needed.
But how do you pinpoint it more so I know exactly what to replace?

What I mentioned before would be a good place to start. Or if you are lucky the readers that oreillys, advance auto, or auto zone have may be able to pull up the underlying transmission codes. I listed these stores because I believe any of the 3 will check your codes for free.Even a $60 scanner from harbor freight is good enough to show the underlying transmission codes. I'd get a scanner that will tell you the code, figure out what the code is, and go from there.
Explain the above part a little better for me what I'm looking for on the RPM dial? what does going into a lockup like it should mean? lock up sounds bad?. Drive on the highway/interstate and watch the rpm and as you reach your intended speed and see if the torque converter appears to be going into lockup like it should. If not, then the odds are that the problem lies within the solenoid that controls it.
