having transmission "resealed" today due to a transmission leak.  Shop called and said they found that the acceleration cable was broken while working on the transmission.   If it was broken wouldn't my accelerator pedal not work??

The cable must have been rusted and broke when they where fixing the leak on the transmission. I'm sure the car will not operate fully without a proper cable/repair. Surprised the mechanic didn't explain this to you.

Ask to see the original cable before they replace it. You should be able to tell if it was broken from wear or if they pinched it or something and caused it themselves.
