Sounds like you got the shaft !!! sorry,not trying to be funny. An 2004 tranny should not be "shot" Check the better business bereau to see if they have had other complaints, This is not normal !! for routine service, i would seek legal advise for damages caused.

Smell the transmission fluid on the dipstick. If it smells like it is burned the mechanic is probably right. If it doesn't smell bad you could get a second opinion from a Chevy dealer.

let me guess monro? midas? go to a tranny shop immediately. if you r smart and you have AAA have it towed there. sue the jerk who incorrectly serviced your tranny.

take it to autozone and find out if it has any codes in the PCM, if you get a P1811 code, it most likely just needs a pressure control solenoid, and its only like $40 for the part and about 5 hours labor. Its a lot cheaper than getting a whole new trans. Its rare to just magically need a trans all of a sudden.
