Mad Emergency help!!!! Trans problems

Hey y'all! So I tested my trans solenoids and discovered I needed 2 new ones. I replaced the 2 bad ones and put everything back together to spec. I got it and started the car and there were no leaks and fluid is not low. But when its in park it's in park. Reverse is reverse. Neutral is neutral. Drive 1st and 2nd are also all reverse. Did I mess up the shift linkage somehow? Is there a diagram on what the linkage needs to look like?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Did you actually pull the VB out to replace those Solenoids? Are you just referring to the linkage that connects to the Manual Valve?

How far did you "open" the VB, far enough that the check-balls may have fell out? How about the linkage that moves the manual spool, has that been checked to see if it is in place, and moves the spool?

I'm stupid....I forgot to hook shift linkage back up after it fell down into the tranny. All is well now.....minus the fact I snapped to bolt heads off in the cover and 2 on the valve body!!! Not sure what to do about that other than get a 12 pack and a extractor set and be very careful. Luckily as of now there are surprisingly no leaks so I'll drive as it as is at the moment

I've never had any luck with easy outs. Lefthand thread drill bits do wonders. Often the heat from drilling releases the broken piece and it comes right out on your bit. Harbor freight has them .

Use a torque wrench on any VB bolts! Use 1/4" drive in INCH-lbs. I think the torque is around 96 INCH lbs, aka 8 ft lbs, but a ft lb torque wrench won't be accurate at that low number and might break bolts. I've always been a bit shy about full torque with those small dia, long bolts, so I just ease up slowly to them. Check the manual or someone else for the correct torque - that's the best info I could find.
