I got a funny noise comming out of the bell housing in the tranny, my truck is automatic and a 2wheel drive model. especially when the truck is cold i get a noise like metal particles swimming around in the tranny.
Ive dropped the pan and changed the filter once and that didnt solve the problem, i can still hear it every once in a while.
also my truck seems to shift a little harder and a lot more then usual. Should i just drop the pan and change the filter again. or could i have a more serious problem. i still have the extended warrenty on the truck but it costs me 100 bucks to take it in.

Usually when some one brings in a vehicle with that sound coming from there with (the shifting problemalso) it turns out to be the torque converter is fried,,take it to a transmission shop and have them test it , it will cost a lot less than the dealer,(I REALLY CANT TELL YOU HOW I KNOW THIS BUT YOU CAN GUESS)..good luck my friend, let us know what happens

If there is grey sludge at the bottom of the pan the bands are probably fried.So you would need to get it rebuilt. That happened on my A500 tranny. My dad and I rebuilt mine but we forgot to flush the cooling lines and grey stuff was in the lines yet.Which resulted in a new tranny, a stronger one. Which was fine with me. "Broken parts are a great reason to upgrade."

Normally the sound wont go away and changing the fluid only aggrevates the problem, the converter might be the only thing wrong, but the fluid will have the metal particles in it, it would need flushing, real good, the choice is yours , good luck
