the phrase "service for life" means in practice. 120,000miles.
at 180,000... yes, your tranny should have been serviced 60,000miles ago.
If a solenoid was the problem, a scan of your vehicle will reveal that. And if there are no codes revealed in the scan, then i wd say it is time to flush tranny, change filter and refill with fresh oil.
