AUTO---There was just enough fluid in it. I just got the call from the machanic and now I need a new one already. It's only a 2005 with 70,000 on it. It just doesn't make sense why it would go so soon.

70k is too soon. Even w/o changing the fluid they will usually go at least 100k.

But, how hot the fluid got and hard it was used are factors that will shorten it's life. And... crooked mechanics are "factors" too. Maybe it's toast.. maybe something in the valve body is bad.. Without someone who knows transmissions well looking at it first hand.. we can't help much via the internet.

If I were you I'd get a guy friend to take it to another mechanic and see what he says. That mechanic you took it to may be telling you that thinking you dont know any thing about trucks and trying to get money out of you because your a women.
