Transmission problem
2001 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles

I put a new valve body in my tranny because it was slamming in reverse and now that I have the new valve body in now I do not have reverse and drive. When I try starting the car it will not start in park only neutral what am I doing wrong?

No we forgot to hook it up but we have another issue. When I pulled the new valve body back off and noticed that the shifter linkage was not hooked up I inspected the body and noticed that on the back side of the valve body there is a plunger that had almost fell out and when I checked the old one and it was spring loaded. Is it supposed to be spring loaded?
