I have just finished installing a "re-manufactured" valve body on my 2006 MazdaTribute 2.3L and have cycled the transmission fluid and got it to operational temperature. I went to put it in reverse and...


Suggest take it in to have the linkage adjusted.
If the mechanics can't get it to "sync" it means your rebuilt
valve body was junk.
I never repair anything inside the trans since there are only a handful of people on Earth who can work with the complex hydraulics of modern automatic transmissions.
I always replace the entire trans with a new one.

Transmission kicks hard when put in drive


The problem is the transmission I'd check the fluid levels. Shops are notorious for not filling fluids to the proper levels. If that isn't the problem which it may not be Then some1 did a very bad job on the trans. The fact that you have been having problems from day 1 is not good. Even so that could be a low fluid problem so I'd check that first. Hope this helps.

Elantra won't start and moves when it's in park


I'm going to say something happened to the cable between the shifter and the transmission. There is a switch on the transmission that prevents you from starting the engine in anything other than park or neutral. The transmission is probably in reverse or drive which would allow it to roll.
Someone would need to check the lever on the trans where the shift cable is attached.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.


On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

When i went to the store i notice my dash lights didnt work when i came out of the store my car would not go in gear.


As far as the dash lights go... Do you have taillights when park/headlamps are on? If not replace blown fuse.
When you say it wouldnt go in gear (if auto trans) do you mean it wont come out of park or when put in drive will not pull?

Transmission?


This issue sounds like dried seals. it is unlikely a filter issue, but no reason to exclude that. Ford uses coarser screen, and does not plug as often.
Consider "mechanic in a can" transmission conditioner, aiming to revive seals.
In any event, the unit may be happier after running some miles.
If that does not work, it is trans surgery time.
