frown 2004 GM - Metal fragments in transmission pan

Well, the trans has been acting quirky - upshifting, downshifting, jerky, etc. Mechanic dropped the pan and found a good handfull of metallic grit. Can't tell where it is coming from, though.

Any ideas?

Looks like the trans gave up the ghost after 120,000 miles.

The only way to know would be to disassemble it. Best get another one.

Looks like that's the way to go. They say I will get a new Ford Factory transmission.

Does that mean that Ford has a warehouse someplace with racks of new transmissions?

$3,500 - gag, choke, etc. 12 months/12,000 miles.

I parked next to a Mercedes 530. That's about the same size as a GM.

Definitely shop around at other transmission re-builders if you haven't already committed.

Check out AAMCO if there's one nearby.

I bet they are way up there price wise also. I say shop around the independent shops.

I bet parts wise its less then $500 bucks. The rest is labor and greed.

Re: 2004 GM - Metal fragments in transmission pan

AAMCO rebuilt mine for $1400, which included the differential for supercharged 3800. Was going to do it myself, but they came through cheaper than what I would've paid for in parts. I had to pull the tranny and put it back in. I do have to say that it would have cost me more had they known that the differential on a supercharged is different from that on a regular 3800. I just had to take it back to them to test drive it to honor the warranty.
