Tran Service

Is it normal to find metal shavings in the pan after say 80k on a tranny service? Not big pieces but small stuff that collected on the magnet.

Im guessing from what previous owner told me it might have had one service before but from what it looked like it prolly had not.

Iv read that its not a good sign, but iv been told other wise so opinions? This is an automatic btw

How is it shifting? Like normal, hesitating, or not at all? Sounds like the clutch packs might be going out or gone. Also check the gears, any grinding or signs of grinding? Weird sounds?

Auto's have SEVERAL clutches, and the purpose of the magnet is to pull any metal shavings away from the gears to keep the metal out of them.

It would be hard to inspect the gears without tearing the whole tranny down.

Your always going to find some small shavings in an auto tranny. I service it with new fluid and then inspect it again after 100miles or so and see what kind of shavings you have then. If they are just as big and numerous as previous, you might be looking into a rebuild.

Small shavings are normal, large shavings indicate a serious problem.
