Default Metal shavings in transmission pan

I am changing my tranny filter and fluid, and when i removed the pan to clean it there was metal shavings in there and the magnet had layers of crap on it. so I took pics of it and I want to know if that's a bad case of it, and if my tranny has issues or if it's normal. thanks in advance.

Thanks for posting those pics.... that debris is normal. The question I would have is how many miles are on the vehicle?

If it has 10,000 miles, that amount of debris might be a concern. If it has 30 -40,000 miles, no worries. The magnet has done its job. One will always find small particles in on a magnet in an automatic transmission.

Run it!
