thanks for replies
it is not the dealer but a independant merc shop.
they showed me the pan and i could not see any particals but they said you could see it under sunlight......the particals are really small.
the sense i get that they are not eager on a repair as the mech. says that even if parts are replaced the metal is in the oil lines and the cooler will cover the conducter plate again????
i am not the first owner so no luck there.
i think i will pull the car away if they dont want to replace parts and find a tranny shop that can.
i am good with mechanics but never been involed with trannies before......
is this part replacement within the scope of a d.i.y.????
any shops in ft lauderdale florida area that can be recommended for this job.
