transmission mystery

I have a 90 300e 2.6 with about 170k. Back in May, I had some revving of the engine and my mechanic looked it over and filled the transmission fluid - problem ceased and I drove it home. Next day, backed out of the garage and tried to put it in gear - nothing. Had it towed to the mechanic - kept it for about 3 days and said it would need a new tranny. Eventually decided not to replace, so had it towed back home. Trying to decide if I would sell it for parts or what, went ahead and cranked it up a few weeks later to see if it would still turn over. Not a problem - went ahead and put it in gear just to see what might happen - it engaged and I drove it up and down the driveway, then around the block and around the neighborhood. Smooth transition, like nothing was wrong. Finally drove it to another mechanic to do a general oil service - had them check out fluids, belts, etc. The car drives like it always has. Any ideas or recommendations?
