Shop for transmission?

My transmission is slipping and I'm not sure what the problem is...Any shop in San Francisco that you guys recommend? I have school/work 5 days a week so it'd have to stay in San Francisco/Daly City

Any suggestions at all? I might just head to the automatic transmission center for the sake of convenience.

Edit: Saw your other post with the DIY oil change.

Try adding more AT fluid into your transmission it could be just be low. Add fluid through auto transmission dip stick.

Basically, this is what my problem is. I've heard that our engine and transmission are pretty much bulletproof, so I can't figure out what's wrong.

EDIT: haha, and I just saw your edited post. I'm not sure how much I have to add. Don't think there is a fill level like the oil dipstick.

Anybody? I think I'm leaking tranny fluid.

Topped off 1 quart of fluid today. A little bit of older looking tranny fluid leaked out from underneath.
