The filter(aftermarket) can be plugged even when new. DID you have the same noise BEFORE you had the trans serviced a month ago?? Have seen several transmissions fail due to this.

Also IF the trans cooler(radiator) allows coolant(antifreeze) into the transmission you will get unusual noises & the trans will quit after a while.
