I could go on and on about that shop, but chances are they tried to fix it and did not know what was wrong so they just kept trying things on your dime. I hate to admit it, but I used to run that shop. Originally I thought the owner had good intentions, but he would not allow me to hire qualified people, to try and update the tools and diagnostic equipment was a joke. Most of the time he wouldn't pay parts bills and told me I was buying too many parts. Even though he never came to shop.
Short and sweet, the people in the shop are not trained. The owner doesn't care as long as he gets his money.
The game in the transmission world is to remove a pan (which almost any car will have some type of deposit) Then they tell you it's wearing out inside (technically true, every time you drive, it "wears") Then they talk you into pulling it apart and then they show you parts and tell you they are worn out. They are not, they charge you for those parts and make up some price. Then your lucky if the transmission works when you leave.
