Just to add to this one what were the codes and symptoms of the old one? What year and model did the donor transmission come out of?As far as the tcm being bad really doubt that I havent ever seen one go bad and cause those issues. The delay bang into reverse is common most common reason for it is the input shaft nut loosens up. Or the pressure regulator bore in the valve body wears out and causes too high or too low of line pressure in the transmission. Usually causes too low of pressure and you will gets a delay slam into reverse and sometimes you get forward gear codes usually 3rd and 4th gear. Also the wires going to the transmission on the valve body the copper breaks inside the insulation and causes gear codes etc. There is also another issue that happens the grey 68 way connector to the inside fuse box. The big red wire to it terminal f5 I believe is open causing intermediate power to the transmission actuators. Saturns are my expertise so please let us know whats going on so we can figure this out.
