Thanks for the help guys. I got the car back from the shop yesterday. They said the tranny fluid looked perfect when drained, and there was no sign of metal or band material in the pan. The engine oil also looks perfect to me. I didn't personally see any oil in the coolant when I checked it. I'm not sure what to think now.

I'm going to go through things carefully myself. I'm going to disconnect the transmission oil cooler and test it with compressed air and see if it holds pressure or I get bubbles in the radiator. I may do an oil analysis on the engine and tranny oil looking for glycol contamination.

I'm not convinced the tranny is really shot, or contaminated anyway. I'm going to see if I can figure out which band is slipping and why. I'll post the results when I find out something...
