so just take it out it will be fine, thanks for the quick response.LOL Yes, it is the plug that is put into the end of the fill/dipstick tube at the time of manufacture. Its designed to pop out when the dipstick is inserted and just ride out its days drifting in your tranny pan. If its there, its a safe bet that the transmission has never been opened up prior to your opening it.
Feel free to discard it.
My car has 175xxx on it tranny is clean, i got the car in 04 with 116xxx so i thought it was about time to do the trans filter i did a flush last year. Trans doesnt feel like a slush box no moredepends, if its got more then say 50k on it probably bad or at least not that great.
Or the fluid was changed Jiffy Lube style, with the vacuum pump thing.Well, it might not mean the fluid has never been changed. It just might mean that whoever changed it before found the thing floating around and thought, "You know, I don't want to mess anything up so since the trans was working before, I'll leave it in."
Thats where i flushed it, I was a proud member of the j-team for a year and a half I had to use that pennzoil transmission fluid but i always used schaffers oil for the engine only the good stuff. You wouldnt belive the crap that was on the magnet in the pan there was 1 big half circle of metalOr the fluid was changed Jiffy Lube style, with the vacuum pump thing.
