TRANSMISSION SEATING PROPERLY

Why does every time I have a transmission replaced on a car (I've had several over the years) does the garage that does the job, want to see the car back in 500 miles to check to see if the transmission has "seated properly" and how would you/they be able to tell, as in driving/engine symptoms, if it's not seated properly?

I didn't do it one time, as I was 100 miles away from where I HAD to have it done, and wondered should I drive all the way back to get it checked.

To make sure the bolts are the correct torque and see if there are any leaks.
It is good that they tell you this. They are just looking out for your saftey.

Good to know. Fortunately no leaks on this car. The other one, eh that's a different story. Heading to the garage tomorrow for that mess.
