First off why did it need a torque converter? If it needed replaced the transmission would have been acting up. Sound like they did the incorrect diagnosis. This is not a maintenance item. 2 did u check to see if there was any fluid in it after it broke down? Maybe they will lower the cost of repair due to their negligence?

Yup, usually when replacing one part in the trans, all parts need to be replaced and or worn.
