Question Transmission or EVAP problem?

Ok so about a week ago I felt my transmission slip for the first time. Was going up a small hill and my RPMs went up but my car took a while before it jerked itself forward. I immediately took it to get the transmission flushed and 2 days later it got worse. Now the car is jerking around all the time...only in 3rd gear. My car shifts into all gears just fine but when it settles in 3rd and I'm cruising it'll begin to jerk around, as if it's trying pretty hard to move forward. Somewhat of a dying car feeling...anyway yesterday I got a code p0496. Scanned at oreilly and it was the evap purge solenoid, which I replaced in spring not long ago...is this symptom my car is having a transmission issue or evap??

Your issue sounds more like the converter locking up and not releasing well.

Could just need to get that solenoid replaced.

Are you driving with the car in D, or in 3? If you are driving around in D and this is happening, try to drive around in 3 and see if it stops. I believe 3 prevents the converter from locking up in 3rd gear.

Even if the CEL is OFF, ... Read your Codes again.

Check for ENG Codes which don't make the CEL come on.

My EVAP System was completely overhauled.
New EVAP everything!

No CEL Light!

(2) OBD2 ENG Codes still exist.

1). P1811 -- Your tranny is about to **** bed!

2). PO521 -- Your Oil Pressure Sensor ain't cuttin' it.

CEL light is on. It's giving me evap code. But would this cause my car to act in the way it's acting?
