Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you on this request. Before you spend 675 dollars for him to guess at what he will be doing to attempt a fix, I, if I were you, woeuld take thsi vehicle to a transmission shop or facility that can do transmissions and have them do a complete transmission fluid Flush. Not a drain the pane and refill, but a complete flush, where a machine is hooked up to the transmission lines and all of the oil and contaminated transmission fluid is removed whilst new fluid is being pumped in. On a vehicle of this age, a transmission fluid conditioner product (commonly used during flushes) shoudl be used in conjunction with the new fluid. This process ( the flush and the conditioner) will clean the interior of the valve body and soften up any neoprene seals that may have hardened up (hot ATF causes the rubber seals to lose the needed pliability)...this might be all you need, and it will be 400 dollars cheaper. An added benefite here is a flush will clean the trans oil filter too, so you wont have to buy one. This would be my recommendation before speculating that one would 'clean it all out' (in my opinion, that is rubbish) and replace a filter and some nameless sensors (more rubbish)....
If he does not know what the problem is to start with ("let's just rebuild it; that will fix it"), he ought not be working on it to start with. Ripped off? Yes. Without Question. By an very poor 'mechanic'.
