A friend of mine had a busted transmission cover, replaced cover and seals. After everything being put back together, when she turns left or right ( forget which way) the tranny will slip and take a minute or two before re-engaging. Could there be something amiss with the way they reinstalled the trans axle? Or maybe the A arm is bent to the point where its not getting the appropriate contact? (She apparently hit a curb or something) hoping for a cheap fix or solution. Thanks in advance

The symptom is typical of low fluid level, and low fluid level is a result of a leaking cover. Did you check the fluid level with the engine off or running?

If only replace was the pan and the seals would any of the fluid came out of the torque converter?

The torque converter won't drain, but you'll lose about half of the fluid in the transmission when the bottom pan is removed.
