Hello. I also own a 1993 Shadow with 100,000 miles on it. I am a auto technician, fully certified and in 1993 was working for a Dodge dealer and I guess I was pretty happy because my Shadow was 7 years old when I bought it and I was still working for Chrysler but now I have my own small shop. All my customers are my friends and I do bench work for local trans, engine, and other repair shops that I have grown to meet and like. I do not do any lay on the ground service because of the loss of my leg to disease(not so bad though) I would tell you to bring it to a dealer that sells Chrysler stuff, look for somebody a little older and make sure it is a salary shop. With ASE trained mechanics. They'll drive it with the little computer hooked up and use their experience and info. To give you an estimate. It would be worth the hour or so labor cause then you can sit back and decide what to do. Take your time. It could be the converter, but get another opinion. Sometimes the lockup solenoid comes on or does not release correctly if you have one, and maybe that is what the mechanic who put the tires on might have suspected. You know all 4 rotors and pads on a Subaru, depending on the area you live is not real "go for the jugular" if you know what I mean. The Subaru parts aren't too cheap. I'm not going to guess so good luck, at least you have found a decent, honest website to meld minds or whatever. Bye for now.
