tranny shops are expensive, dropping it is pretty simple besides those two stubborn top bolts. My uncle owns a garage and he said for instance my 97 2.3 5 speed, for a shop to do it all expect 12-maybe 1400 bucks verses you taking it out would run anywhere from 5-800 bucks, mainly depends on what all is wrong and what pieces need replaced.... I did mine myself ( with his guidance of course ) it was fairly simple, just pay super close attention to how everything comes apart and sometimes you will need special tools.... My honest opinion is to drop it yourself , talk to some people and find a shop that alot of people recomend !!! Good luck......
