Refer to the same question you asked earlier, either you need start diagnosing it (we will help as much as possible) or get to a trans repair facility.

Yes, I will help you to the best of my ability also, but we just don't have enough information. Trying to diagnose not being at the car is difficult

On top of that, I fail to see how a guy at an auto parts place can say the gear ratios are wrong.

Jones, with the code "we" could give some guidance. We all have years of experience doing just about all things mechanical and diagnosis.

The plug under the dash isn't some magic portal to the unknown, It's the onboard diagnostic port that is on all modern cars and trucks. With a simple code reader it gives a diagnostic trouble code with a number like p0732 that tells the person doing the diagnosis what to look at to find the problem. In your previous question I gave an example of what a service manual directs the tech to look at.
