The SA gets paid on commission for your repairs. The more things that they suggest, the more they get paid. I had a local SA tell me that I was taking money out of his pocket, for doing my own repairs! What did he think that he was doing for me, other than making my wallet lighter!

If you are still having some problems with your tranny, check the fluid level. If the level is low, it can cause harsh shifts & other problems. If the car has more than 50k miles on it, I would recommend changing the fluid & filter. This is a fairly easy DIY, that will cost you around 250 dollars. You should notice a big difference in the shifting patterns after doing this! The below link will show you how to check the fluid level.

Good Luck!
