His transmission is messing up and he is far from home.

From other posts and click link here: Help - stuck on road 722.3 no 3rd/4th gear
I rescaled rear transmission pump this weekend but couldn't line up gears. I looked and the spring looked like it served that purpose - to fit gears in once you move.

Driven 300mi on i10 just broke down. No 3rd 4th gear.

Did I screw this up?

I did notice fluid is high though. Can't think of a way of taking some out no way to drain it ...

And this was posted by his dad: I am Ps2cho's father, and trying to help from afar...
We resealed the rear pump, but here is what I read about the function of the rear pump, I dont think its related.

Secondary Pump:
Secondary pump is required only for towing and tow-starting
vehicle. It is designed as an external gear pump and is positioned in
rear section of the transmission. If needed, secondary pump is driven
by centrifugal governor shaft. Secondary pump operates only if engine
is not running and vehicle is rolling (tow-starting procedure), while
brake band B-2 slowly engages. Pump stops operating when vehicle comes
to a stop or if transmission has shifted into 4th or 5th gear (engine
running).

However, we also resealed the Kickdown Solenoid.
We took it out, replaced the 3 "O" rings, and replaced it.

Here is what it says, and what he is experiencing...

WILL NOT UPSHIFT
Incorrect governor pressure. Defective governor assembly.
Check for stuck kickdown solenoid or for constant voltage to solenoid
caused by a defective fuel pump relay or sticking kickdown switch.
Valve body dirty or valves sticking. Repair or replace valve body.

If we did something wrong with the Solenoid, would this make sense?

Thanks on my phone. Got fluid out via radiator...

Car cooled down it shifted 1st-2nd manually then slipped back into 1st.

Leaving car and gonna try to flat bed it tomorrow. What a nightmare!!! Waiting for my ride.

Fluid is clean, not burnt does not smell. I am thinking pump gear broke off and nuked it :(

Could be a stuck kick-down switch under the gas pedal. Make sure its clean.
