2002 Kia Sedona, F5A51: Bind Up On The 2-3 Shift

This unit came in with geartrain failure. After rebuild the transmission had a 2-3 bind up on the first shift attempt. After this initial bind up the transmission would shift normally. The PCM was replaced with the same results. It turns out that the transmission had the wrong planets and the gear ratio difference was the cause of the complaint. Replacing the planets fixed the problem.
