Default my 01'* laundry list - tranny failure code?

hey so my 2001 has spent two days in the shop. Real good mechanic, the dudes awesome and for a fair price for his work, i dont mind him doing the stuff i dont have time to repair.

One thing on my list was he pulled a transmission comminucation distruption code off of the scanner. I had my service engine light on, that was one of the codes that popped up, i cant remember what one it was though. Anyone else ever hear of that before?

And he also did an overall check on the car cause i swore a few months ago somethin was up with my rear sure enough i was right... the rear shock was totally blown out. apparently there was fluid leaking everywhere from that drivers side rear shock.
is that starting to be a common problem for other 00+ owners?

A ton of other things are getting fixed on the car that just add up to over 1500 dollars in parts alone, im litereally having the car fixed so all i gotta do is change oil and rotate tires once n awhile.

my biggest concern is that trans code? He said it was a loss of communication between the tranny comp and the main computer

U1016 is the code.

So why would those codes show up? The car drives perfectly fine.... especially off the line ask my girlfriend, she punches me everytime i show off.

I do notice sometimes (when im doing 65) and i punch it the engine needs 2 seconds to find a gear...but thats the only time something of that nature happens.

i should get the Bonne back tonight
