What problem was the trans having before they worked on it? How many miles were on the trans, do u know if the trans had ever been serviced before? Was it a full trans fluid flush or just the filter and a few quarts? Before a correct answer can be givin by anyone, this info is needed. For example if the trans has high mileage and has never been serviced they should of only changed the filter plus 4 5 quarts to fill it up, if they did a full trans flush under those conditions they ruined it

I am assuming you have vac assist brakes which uses a booster and vac from the engine. Sounds like the vac line between the booster and engine has ice or some foreign matter in it.

Front wheel drive tranny change is not easy or practical. Check the Torque converter lockup solenoid and the torque converter.
