The trany fluid was changed in my car today, and it appeared that there was brass pieces in the pan

does anyone know wot is made of brass in the g/box, and is this a big concern.

Is normally a sign that your transmission has worn out something like the thrust washes inside. You will probably find that after giving it a good oil change it will probably be alright for a while, was the oil off colour at all, or did it have any other stuff in the bottom? Or was it just the brass?

the oil in the bottom was terrible, a really sweet smell, and was nothing like being red. I had the tranny serviced 25,000k's ago.

There was nothing else in the trannyr apart from the brass stuff.

Any cooler will help, off colour tranny fluid is normally a sign of overheating, its probably gone a yellow/brownish colour?
