Thanks, any other suggestions. If it is a valve sticking open, what causes this so I can go in with some knowledge to help my cause at a shop. Anything I should let them know?

I have never heard of a "valve sticking open" causing this problem. It has always been a pressure control solenoid problem so far.

What I have written down from the first trans shop is, Pressure Control Valve stuck open,it is mechanical and that a Valve body kit is needed to fix the issue. According to him GM makes the kit because this issue happens so much?

If the valve was actually stuck open, the car would not be able to move.
