I torques it to 115ft lbs then I air checked it and every thing seem to still move so I put the valve body back and started it up but it goes forward and it feels it it is in gear when it is in park and reverse goes forward and neutral goes forward too could I have bent the tube? Would the tube cause this issue?

If you did it the way I told you the tubes shouldnt have gotten bent. First thing that comes to mind is bent manual valve linkage or not hooked to the manual valve?

I took side cover back off and it looks okay so I put it back on I don't understand all I did was put the valve body back on then the cover hooked the wires back up. Did not unhook manual valve I did notice that I did not hear the solenoids when I put into gear it acts like it is in the forward gears in all gear selection even park if it was not for the parking gear I think it would go forward

You have to unhook the manual valve linkage from it when removing the valve body. Then hook the manual valve back up when reinstalling the valve body.

"yes you are right" I opened it back up and found out that I did not hook it back up I did hook it back up but now I think it is bent so I will have to see if I can straighten it on monday

I knew it I have done it once before and yes they get bent and ground up from doing that. Is it hard to shift thru the gears now?If so its bent.

Okay I straighten the rod that goes down to the park and took the other rod out and replaced it with the one from the other trans it shifts like it was new nice and smooth I also changed the temp sensor too.
