Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Hard to say, but I'd be on someone at that shop. They may have just blown trash all through the system, but most places are less familiar with Mopar service requirements. Broken bands can result since the mentality is to tighten down as tight as possible, when that isn't the procedure. Incorrect transmission fluid is used. Universal IS NOT universal, but is acceptable as a top off til it can be changed. The newer electronic models are much more sensitive to trash as the sensors will be affected. I'd lean towards trash first. With that mileage, it's actually earned a rebuild.
