Transmission pan drop/oil change horror

and after cutting the filter open, this is what I have found...






Tranny shift good, no mayor difference before or after service. Anyone else found this after opening the filter? Should i worry?

Lou.

Color is generally not indicative of fluid condition or that of the trans. IIRC you didn't say how many miles. All ATF should look like that after a couple of ten thousand miles. AT failure is not dependent upon fluid.changes. They can fail on 30k mile changes or 100k mile changes.
