He may have burned out the controllor for the trans by producing a voltage surge.

You need a shop to verify before replacing it.

Just to add to this one you never said anything about the car starting on its own without using the key. Also I would check all the fuses if you have a blown tcc fuse it will die when puttng it in gear. Because the torque convertor will be locked when puting it in gear at idle and not moving. You very well could have blown some fuses.I would check the basics first.

The valves suddenly failed they say after jumping it back wards?The valves can be checked with a compression test and a cylinder leak down test. Was that done by the guy that told you that?Also did the guy that said it was a bad fuel pump check the fuel pressure?If so what was the reading?Is there any codes in the computer?This is why I never jump start anyone with my car.

If it ran fine before the jump starting the other I would get a second oppion on that one. Or you can rent a compression tester and I will guide you thru checking the compression test.
