Transmissions & Drivetrains

Why is my car not shifting correctly after motor mounts replaced?

My car has 212,000 miles, and I just had the motor mounts replaced Monday. As of Sunday night, when I drove the car to the garage, it was shifting fine and had plenty of power. When my son picked it up, he noticed that it does a slight bump when it shifts now, and when you give it gas, the RPMs go way up but it has way less power. Not making this up. The garage is very defensive and they are trying to blame it on the parts that I supplied. I'm not going with that excuse since the parts are not mechanical or electronic. They can't even get their story straight about whether fluids were added or not, when SOMEONE there added transmission fluid and now it's way overfull. My husband is pretty familiar with the workings of cars, but he's not a mechanic, and he believes it's electrical as if something wasn't reconnected properly, or something. It doesn't quite sound like it's because of the overfull transmission fluid. Thoughts?

This is about my 2000 Nissan Maxima. I didn't realize it changed it to my other car until after I posted this. I will repost, I guess. I don't see a delete option.

If the transmission fluid level was correct before the garage repairs, then afterwards the fluid level is now too high - then this is the cause of the shifting issue noted.

Have the transmission fluid drained / reduced to the correct level - by the same garage that performed the most recent repairs.
