Messed Up Transmission Cables???

i recently was involved in a car accident in my cobalt 08 LS 2.2L.. i had to change my radiator, fan, condenser. after having that changed i seem to have some transmission problems, the car is automatic but it feels as if the car is in first gear forever. it only goes up to about 43mph and the rpm hits the 4x1000 and the car just doesn't go anymore it just revs up to about 43mph.. i was told maybe the guy who replaced my radiator might have touched some cables, or maybe during the crash the transmission cables got messed up or something ... im just looking for help finding the cables so i can see if everything is plugged in right or something. if anyone has pictures or any kind of help or advice will be greatly appreciated.. thank you so much.

Only one cable goes to transmission actuator. Almost looks like transmission is not building pressure. Are you sure you topped up transmission after changing radiator.

I'm assuming it has a trans oil cooler in the radiator? Perhaps bent/kinked cooler lines? Have you tried the manual gears?
