Nice diagnosis from the dealer.
I might be a bit cynical after all these years,
IMO 80% of the shops are either incompetent or just plain THEIVES.
My $1200-1500 transmission overhaul estimate from 5 different shops finally only cost me $2 for a broken plastic bushing to fix it.
I bought that honest transmission man and his wife steak dinners for his free advice= and had to MAKE him take the money.
