New G6 owner

Hello my name is Mike I recently bought a '05 Pontiac G6 from a relative and the car has been kept up for the most part it has 206,000 miles and still runs well but I've noticed the transmission has been slipping and shifting roughly. The check engine light came on for the speed sensor and i took it to AAMCO to get it checked and of course they suggested a full rebuild because "there could be more going on". the fluid is burnt and the speed sensor needs to be changed for sure. I wanted to know if anybody had any suggestions on how to fix the problem without having to spend $2,000+ on a car i got for $1,000 any suggestions on products that fix slipping.
