Thats a vauge question there are a endless number of things that could happen. If only it were that easy to diagnose a bad computer. Lets start with what is your car doing?

I will I'm taking it to Kia to tell me what's wrong. Do the codes tells you that it could be a trasmission control?

The codes are starting points for diagnose there are a couple of codes here and there that will say to replace a computer if the code sets. But thats not the norm you have to get in there and elimante everything else untill nothing else is left to find a bad computer. Thats what I do before I even think about a bad computer could be causing a certain problem.

I would think this is more of an engine rather than transmission fault.

What scares me is they said this happened after a jump start. The first thing that comes to mind for the power being so low and not shifting is a plugged cat. But that shouldnt have started after a jump start.A bad alternator or battery came to mind too but they said that tested good also would make sense for having to jump start the car.

I went to autozone told me both were good, but the problems started after the owner put the negative with postive cables to the battery, I took it to one auto mechainc told me gas pump he said it was good after checking other things told me the values are bad and have diffrent readings, I went to a second auto mechainc told me the same the gas pump he checked it and said it was good. The resond I think is the trasmission control is because after puting the cable wrong the problems started with the gears to be bad after about 2 weeks the car the car faild and it only turn on shakes when I put 'D' and runs really slow after almost going to 2 gear turns off.

Sorry for the wrong information at the first question. I know it makes no sense to jump start, but I jump started it when the car didn't turn on then having an accident with the cables, after that I did take the battery and alternator to auto zone to check and tested good, I hope this information helps now.

P0028 = Intake Valve Control Solenoid Circuit Performance.

P0650 = Fault with the MIL. Is the MIL showing when ignition switch is turned on?
