Easiest thing to do is take it back to the shop and have them make it right.

the guy messes up somethin' that simple...how can you trust him with things that actually require a measure of intelligence to perform~

Doesn't this one have a transmission control module? needs to visit the mothership periodically?

guess '97 do not have them...just a guess TCM? got the ECM...only makes sense....how touchy these things are~

that's just a guess Jamie...Look for ye self what's the deal there...perhaps a vacuum line has come off or is cracked or bloated...always recommend Silicone hoses, like the cops use and what BMW uses too~

just pay attention to what's the transmission doing...Please check the level idling in neutral....fluid should be between the two hash marks...full cold and full hot....presumably~ note the smell and color too~

if the level is low, look to the rubber connectors to the radiator...a common failure point and cause for loss of fluid~

going to look for a TCM...to save face here~

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/251130076676?lpid=82_______ Boy, howdy these are the "brains" of the transmission....if the transmission is mis- behaving....these might be able to be checked for a malfunction...and possibly re-programmed like you said, Jamie~
