Transmission Issues Due to Water Intrusion From the Dipstick Tube on Dodge Charger

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Water may leak into the transmission from the dipstick tube, causing fluid contamination and a shudder during light acceleration. New seals for the dipstick tube are available; the transmission fluid should be flushed as well. If the problem lingers, a new torque converter may be needed.

Apparently water got into my tranny from dip tube causing loss of power during driving and fluid shot out of vent causing some smoke.
I took it to a shop where they supposedly fixed the problem but a week later the same problem occured.
