Sorry to hear that but you are doing the best thing which is to take it back to them. Since they did all that work on your transmission, I will complain to them that you are now having this issue in first gear that you did not have before. Let them figure it out. Since you did not list the year of your car, I am assuming that it might be older and might be in need of a software upgrade for the transmission. Usually the dealers do not do a software upgrade for the hell of it but they might do it in this case to see if it smooth out the transmission. There are different software versions in play. Complain to them and give us some feed back. Good luck.
