Cold..confused.. Stuck...

I have a 2010 chevy cobalt. a couple weeks ago god smited me and got my return hose from my radiator to the tranny loose.. anywoo i was driving and the hose got off.. i was stuck and got towed back to my house.. i rechecked the line, bought a new pin and replaced the fluid. Now my car will barely catch on reverse, and won't shift to 4th gear. I just changed the transmission fluid pressure switch.. same result.. and now just switched out the tcu.. same result.. I am stumped have been driving like this for the past couple weeks and today i think my tranny is f**ked.. Can someone enlighten me? Ive searched alot of forums and this is where i figured i'd go to first.

Sounds like you drove the car with low transmission oil levels.
