His transmission should be properly repaired first before we worry about the long term results.

You don't need to be a brain surgeon to follow detailed instructions. What you do need is the right tools and attention to detail (which some people do lack).

Unfortunately, dealer service will screw up even an oil change sometimes. What Ford can do to improve that is another discussion altogether.
