1988 Volvo 745 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 255355 miles
Went to the mechanic today. He checked the Trans shifting. Traced and replaced the kick down. Cable was sticking. Repaired overdrive relay. Used 4 qts of Trans fluid ATF.
The parts store couldn't supply the Transmission Fluid Kit in time, so he said he " rinsed the filter" and " Glued" it on. He couldn't tell me why the trans fluid was WAY over the Max line and THICK.
I'm freaking out that I just dropped $479 and I didn't even get a new Trans fiter kit.
Q: Is rinsing the filter ok and will " the glue" hold up?
Did I get ripped off (Kick Down Cable $82.30 & $10 overdrive relay listed as shop supplies)?
Should it have taken 4 hrs of labor to do this?
Its running better, but if I got ripped off I won't go back to this shop. Does this sound like the right DX along with not knowing why the trans fluid was thick and way over the max line?
Also, what size winter tires should I buy for my 740 Wagon and should I get studs?
Thank you. I've looked through all the 740 questions and can't find this answer.
