Default trans issues after axle swap on 98 V6

I just changed the axle on a 1998 ranger with a 3.0 liiter. axle was taken out of a 97 2.5L. everything went smoothly and trucks runs fine but transmission shifts hard and stays stuck in 1st gear when in (D). once its warm the transmission shifts in (D) but with a very noticeable jerk. the speed sensor doesn't seem to work at all either. The old rear end failed becuase of a bad pinion bearing while the truck was being operated. the speedometer jumped around during that time, but I can't see that causing a problem after the new axle was installed. maybe someone here has an idea or similar experience that could help.

Thanks to all who reply!
