The shift solenoid pack is usually replaced in this situation along with a new transmission control module which has to be programmed to work amend your shifting concerns. You will need access to the system wiring diagram to trace power and ground signals through the system properly. Consider having an experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come out and take a closer look at the damage to offer a more personal diagnosis.
