2004 mazda 6 wont shift out of 1st gear smoothly. It whines, then finally catches. If it's cylinder (will be 3rd one) which number is it?

your gear selector linkage cable has come adrift from the linkage bracket just below the battery tray ,you can temporarily fix with two cable ties ,but will need to replace one of the two cables one is for neutral and the other is to select gear

I replaced the transmission conrtrol module wihtout disconnecting the battery did i ruin the new module

Putting the old module in can help figure it out. However, most modules are fairly sturdy... It would take a good shock to the system to damage it. It is ideally best to disconnect the battery, but many times it's a safety procaution to avoid accidental engine start ups while working on the vehicle (especially with auto start remotes being accidentally pushed)
