external trans filter

I read on another forum that all job 1 (mine is 01/07 build date) have a external trans filter...ive looked high and low and dont see a filter on mine. Also I changed tanny fluid and did a flush about a month ago kinda worried they didnt change the internal filter or is that a given that they would?

I cant tell you that for sure by the looks of it with the right tools it could be changed out with some loss. It has some special clips on it. I think the filter is like 180 bucks.

well im ticked I didnt know this a month ago when i did the flush....i guess when I go for days off ill just have to take it in a get a new filter put in....I called the place that did the flush and they said they dont change the internal or external filter unless the customer asked for it to be changed...I asked them how many people do and the guy told me that almost everbody DOES NOT ask for any filter change. He stated that the flush cleans it out good enough...but im assuming if the filter gets full then its not filtering properly so ill just take it to fold when I get home and get the external one changed....am I safe to assume that since I have the external filter that I do not have an internal filter?
Thanks in advance for all of your help

Thats funny no one ask for it to be change because I bet most think it would be! I am not 100% sure but I believe it does not have an internal filter only the external. Then they switched to the internal in later 08. Personally I would just catch it on the next change. If it gets full I would think that it would not allow fluid to pass and give weird shifts. I have 128,000 on mine and maintain it well but I have to say my ext trans filter has been on for a long time.

From what I have read online people say that the external filter only filters 10% of the fluid. I believe that I read something about fluid only passing through it under certain conditions. I also read that there is still some sort of screen type filter in the pan. I would do a lot of research before you tear into it again.

I have 128,000 miles on mine and it hasnt been touched. I had tranny fluid changes on two cars I have owned in my life both of which I had to replace tranny in I vowed after the second time I wouldnt mess with it. Coincidence maybe but every other I have owned never had a problem.
