Cheapest? Just thinking out loud, You can get free estimates from a mechanic or transmission shops as to what exactly your issue is. Is it a linkage problem, easy valve body replacement, or a total rebuild? Put a used transmission in? Still money. Are you attached to the car? Trade it in on another one?

sounds like you have bad shift solenoid or 2,, you have a check engine light?? if that's what it is then its not hard to change at all, just have to drop the transmission pan on the underside of the transmission and then pull the solenoid that's bad and then plug the new one in and usually run around 60 - 120 for those
