take it to inspection, they probably just need to reset the computer... they act funny if they disconnect them and connect them again. probably they disconnect a sensor when they swap the tranny

if its flashing it means catalitic damage is possible, u probely have a cylinder not firing.

It could be anything, but i would go to a place that can plug in the obd2 reader (little computer that is pluged in to the car to run diagnostics) so that you know what code the car is throwing.
