Q: Reinstalled valve body incorrectly.

asked by on

I had an issue with my transmission and tried to replace the solenoid on my own. I took out the valve body to get to the cell and think I may have reinstalled the valve body wrong. Now, I have no gears at all and my truck only starts while in neutral.

I would seek a diagnosis from a certified transmission mechanic. He should be able to get everything back where it is supposed to go no problem. Transmissions are very complex and he will have the training to get if fixed up for you.
