It did start shifting through all gears(even overdrive) with some checking and filling the next morning. It has not wanted to shift a couple times since but needs upper engine mounst too, so I haven't been able to really test it well. Had a transmission manufacturer code too. Would the control unit from the other tranny help? The pins weren't the same on the connection.
