P0741/suggestions for good reasonable shop in San Antonio?

My car has been feeling fishy lately and today i finally got a "service engine soon" light and code.
P0741 - Powertrain: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Performance/Stuck Off

I dont mind rebuilt parts or salvage yard stuff and i dont mind a shop that is willing to use them with my knowledge.
My car shifts fine and drives great and is in fantastic shape for a 2003CiC automatic with 115k miles so I want to keep it. But i want to start saving up and have a shop to go to when it dies or when i get enough to do it ahead of time. Ive got about 3k ive been saving for any major issues since i bought it but i dont want to go big when i only need to go small.

Ive seen a lot of threads about changing the tranny while your in there or if i dont change the tranny i need to have the tranny thermostat changed if i just fix the TC. and since im not a mechanic i dont really know what path would be best.

So im just looking for some ideas and good shops. Thanks in advance
