ef falcon i6 auto gearbox problem

hey everyone, ummmm just had my gear box serviced and found the usual metal shavings at the bottom, then found some gold shavings, what does this mean, is my box nearly dead? if so can it be fixed and beefed up, or would it be past the point were i would have to get a new box?


thanks in advance

Daniel

Those brassy coloured bits are the tranny cooler falling apart...well was on our EB anyway. Needed an external tranny cooler. the EB had the tranny cooler integrated if you would with the radiator....we just bypassed it.
