Exclamation transmission wont shift 2003 kia with a 2001 hyundai sonata engine

ok i have a 2003 kia optima body with the engine and trans out of a 2001 hyundai sonata, its a 2.4 dohc 4 cyc. when it starts out it seems to have a second gear takeoff, and slams into reverse and sometimes drive, it was idleing up round 1800 because of some vaccum leaks, but we soleved it, i believe.we have replaced the idle air control sensor on the intake the transmission range sensor and throttle position sensor, the computer is out of the 2001 sonata but i have a new one ive yet to install thats designed to work with the kia's slapstick in it since the sonata didnt come with one. but ive been told it could be my transmissions solenoid pack or maybe the input speed sensor, any ideas would greatly be appreciated.
