Angry Trans referral in So Cal-4R100

Looks like my tranny is dust.



I know the John Wood tranny is the best in this area, but I'd sure like to find something a little less spendy.

Any referrals?

Thanks in advance.

CT-thanks for the response.

I will likely end up with a Towmaster.

I didn't see where anyone asked above about the service. However, it was serviced in the last 20K and the fluid was fine when checked a few weeks preceding my recent project......a link to that post follows which also allows you to hear the noise.

Engine noise....

I believe the TC is falling apart, but there's no real way to know that until the tranny is removed and torn down.

Based upon the noise, glitter in trans fluid and picture of the pan, what diagnoses or recommendation would you be able to provide?
