    Overheating troubleshooting

    Automatic Transmission Fluid Pressure Switch

    I'm glad you got it repaired for a reasonable cost. What you are referring to is the EPC, pressure control solenoid. http://www.ebay.com/itm/4F27E-FN4A-EL-FNR5-TRANSMISSION-EPC-SOLENOID-PRESSURE-CONTROL-OEM-99-AND-UP-/251218613251?hash=item3a7dcbd403&vxp=mtr

    It's brake time

    You should have sanded, not turned the rotors. Hindsight Have them re-turned (free hopefully), check runout, check thickness, if within spec, run with it. If not, replace them.
