What you should check first is the spark plug for the #1 cylinder and see if there is a white film on it this would be a sign of a coolant leak which would cause a problem with the O2 sensor

EGR Temperature Sensor or Circuit
ABS light is nothing to do with code 55 separate fault circuits.
Under dash there are two wires with mini spades at the end, connect one of them to the single black multiplug in position 2. Thats RHS plug inlet when you hold plug with tab lock on top.
ABS sensor should then flash up error coded. Ignore code 11 thats a initial flash to let you nknow the difference between a fast and slow flash.
Let me know what code flashes up and I will tell you the symptom,

It sounds like your having some very serious issues.
First off how many miles are on the transmission?
If you have a lot of miles it could be that is it just plain worn out.
When its cold it may work a little better because the fluid is a little thicker and all the parts inside haven't expanded yet(due to heat) allowing them to not "slip" as easily.
I would check your fluid and take a look at it. If its dark and burnt smelling, its time to change it.
If it doesn't smell burned and its a red/oarnge color the fluid is probably fine.
I would then check your fluid level.
If you have to much fluid it can create air bubbles which will cause problems.
If you have to little fluid things won't be lubricated properly and will overheat, and this will also cause problems.
If your fluid level is also fine, then I would check your transmission filter(if equipped). This could be the cause of your problem as well.
If you've made sure you have fresh fluid filled to the correct level and a new transmission filter and it still acts up it is probably just worn out.
Hopefully my tips will get your car going up those hills for a little while longer,
