Bring it back to who ever put in the transmission and get them to verify that what they did is correct no sensor or hoses disconnected. A professional grade scan tool reads stored trouble codes, pending trouble codes, looks at live sensor data so you can look at a sensors performance and output signals without having to do intensive testing at each sensor, (cheaper scan tools have limited capabilities and may only read the trouble code stored). As with most things automotive it's best to check the basics first, check for vacuum leaks, fuel pressure and delivery volume. Verify engine mechanical integrity before looking for complex problems check that the basics are sound.
