I cringed at the title of your post.
Metal in the trans is never good. I am not a expert but it is not normal, trans fluid
needs to be clean at all times, a single grain of sand could hurt a trans.
2. Metal shavings in the transmission oil pan are normal and nothing to worry
and if metal shavings in the oil pan are normal then why do they suggest that you
change the filter "so they don't go back up and cause further damage" that makes no
sense, they are contradicting what they have said earlier.
You are correct have the problem fixed.
Oh yea what was replaced was it the torque converter?
