I am currently troubleshooting this problem and have not solved it yet but I am posting photo diagrams and updates previously I was successful at restoring normal shifting and driving but that lasted only a day I believe this is a problem with the speed control solenoid (inside the transmission) just inside the trans oil pan attached to the Valve body. Will update photo's.
