Default SL2 Auto Trans Problem

Rebuild my auto trans in November has been working fine until last week when all of a sudden it will not go into 4th gear and the check engine light comes on. Checked the solenoids they check out OK. Could it be my valve body or possibly the PCM I am at a loss. Please help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I geuss I don't have any direct help, but you oughta go to autozone or some parts store and get the code(s) read. Post back the actual code(s), not the interpertation of them.
In the meantime maby one of the other people here has an idea.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I hooked up a code reader today and the following is what was displayed: P0113 IAT sensor 1 circuit, high input, P0734 gear 4 ratio incorrect. What do you make of this?

You didn't by any chance put one of those $0.50 resistors that people sell as $35.00 performance chips on the IAT did you?

So far I haven't had to deal with valve body issues yet thank goodness. However, my reading on here says you can't do a definiive check on the transmission solenoids with an ohm meter. They're a mechanical part as well as electrical.

...
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

I would check to see if the connector at the top of the transmission is in firmly and tightly. Make sure there are no broken or chafed wires.
