Have you had the front band adjusted recently? Sounds like it might be slipping especially since you are having issues going into and out of 2nd. This is where I would start, 107,000 miles is nothing so it's probably something due to neglect (no offense but most people neglect two things, cooling system and transmission because it is the most expensive)

Well only way to find out is to grab a wrench and get to work.

If you're not doing the work, tell the shop you want fluid/filter change and both bands adjusted.

well considering that for double the amount I could rebuild your transmission lol... something like a fluid change, band adjustment, and install a shift kit I would normally charge around 200. They are getting you on the labor I think because to install a shift kit though it doesn't take a very long time, shops like to take there time. And they take there time not to get it done right (because that never happens) but to make extra money. So it should be around 200, thing is a shop has overhead and employees and I do repairs out of my home so I don't have all that overhead and crap, but I'm not running a business, I just help out here there people that are short on cash and of course friends and whatnot.

You could opt to do it yourself, it's pretty easy all you need is an inch lb torque wrench and harbor freight has them on sale for I think it's 13 bucks so there ya go.
