Q: HOw much should it cost to fix a tranny leak? on 2000 Isuzu Trooper

I had the fluid flushed, filter replaced, and fluid replaced yesterday for $270. It is leaking a lot! Was that a total waste of $? why didn't the mechanic suggest fixing the leak first?

Car was not "jumping" upon acceleration from a stop, but that ran fine. I did tell him I had tranny fluid on garage floor, so obviously there was a leak. Car was wet underneath, too.
When I asked mechanic to show me how to check tranny fluid (difficult on a Trooper, no dipstick) he showed me while the car was on the lift. I asked about all the tranny fluid all over the underside of the car. He said it had some small leaks and he could call me with the estimate. I had to call him 48 hrs later and then he said it would be $320 to replace accumulator and we could do it in a week. Within 4 days the car would not shift into reverse or drive.
