First-Did you go for a drive,with you driving and the mechanic riding? This is to try and duplicate the problem. If the shop doesn't do that ,go elsewhere,they have no interest.
Second- You need to do complete check of all vacuum hoses.
-Put a scan tool on it and check for codes.
Third- You know it has a problem,so if you like the shop leave it there,till they find the issues.
Everything is not okey,so why would you take it back and why would they tell you that?
This is the real problem with the vehicle owner and the repair shops.
If that was in my driveway I would work with you until we solved it.
