Transmissions Ram 1500: I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 with

Customer Question

I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 with a 46RE transmission, just installed the governor switch and solenoid along with the overdrive solenoid and converter solenoid, I was getting a PO740 so I tried to fix the problem by replacing all those things and now I've lost power (maybe because of the cable I'm guessing) and I'm slipping and banging into 2nd gear besides that it drives fine, also now I'm still getting the PO740 and a PO783. Is there anything else I can do or would you think the transmission is done?

What's cheaper/better? Rebuild or new? This current one is from a junk yard
