Have Transmission Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
Here’s the sequence of events I follow:Check fluid level and color. Make appropriate repairs.Check shift solenoids with a scan tool in bidirectional mode ifapplicable. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission and this isthe easiest way to check them.Drop pan and inspect for excessive metal shavings inside pan.Check valve body and clutches visually.Hopefully you may not have to go this far, maybe you just were abit low on fluid.
Okay, once they do these items I mentioned to you, they will then know what needs to be fixed. At this time there's no way of knowing until some testing is done.

How can I give you an estimate of costs for something I don't know yet is wrong. In shops we isolate the problem then tell you what the costs are to repair it. What you're asking is totally bogus.
