Been having problems with my trans.So today I flushed system an refill it with mercon v . When I removed the trans pan the filter was in the pan. I went ahead and finshed the job. What I would like to know is how much might have caused.

were you noticing the transmission occaisionally neutralling out? if so, this is why. The more often this happened, the more likely it is to have caused wear inside.

I found the same thing the other day when I did my TC swap. The filter had fallen out of the orange gasket that holds the filter in its bore. My trans never neutraled out. It did a hesitation/bucking type thing sometimes when it down shifts into 1st when coming to a stop, but it still does that with the new filter.

First time I saw mine in the pan was after my 97 trans went. Since then, I use safety wire across it to ensure that it stays up in the bore. Cheap insurance.

I was thinking of welding some small posts to the bottom of the pan in a few spots to keep it from coming down. Where did you attach the ends of the wires, and was there a special kind of wire that you used. I think I may drop the pan this weekend and fab something up.

I used the 98 filter that has the pickup tube, it fit snug into place, and the B&M trans pan. The new pan has two post in that supports the filter , plus it holds three more quarts.

Just regular safety wire, and there are a few holes you can wire thru if you look carefully. There should be a bracket in there somewhere, just start from there, run a loop of wire around the filter, and tie it back at the bracket with the other end of the wire.

But think about all the fluid capacity you lost by adding that wire! :D
