2002 Kia Spectra - Transmission issues

Put in a new valve body in auto trans now every position reverse & neutral are all forward years & it don’t shift !

And?.. What does the shop that did the work say about it? Was the linkage, if disconnected during the work, reconnected correctly?

Whoever did it screwed something up.

First question, Why did you replace it ?

Second question, Did you use a new valve body, or pull one from a used transmission ?
