The trans pan is on top and when it is removed for leak repairs or valvebody service,there is a 10 way electrical connector that has to be removed held in place by a 7mm screw.If care wasn't taken when it was re-installed you very well could have those problems.Also they may have pinched a wire under the valve body cover(pan).Or they may have knocked the ground wire off your trans range switch.Most likey related to the pan repair.hope this helps

After highway driving for 2 hours and stopping for gas the car would initially start and then stall, it would run again until the car cooled for 30 minutes.

Sounds like your coolant level might be low. At highway speed you probably have enough coolant and with the air passing thru the radiator keeps the temp down, but at idle not so much. Or depending whether you have a belt drive or electric fan. Belt driven, could need a new belt.

without being able to look at the car its next to impossible to diagnose what's going on. taking your car to the dealer will be the best idea considering they have to the tools and equipment to "talk" to the vehicle and see if its storing error codes when these incidents happen. keep in mind this will cost you money since your vehicle is out of warranty.
