Flakes in Transmission Fluid

Thanks for all the information. Took it to the dealership and they determined that it was just some nonmetallic debris in the fluid. Even though the RV only has 24K miles, it is 10 years old and apparently age can be an issue as well as mileage. They flushed it, cleaned the screen, etc., and replaced the fluid. It never had a problem driving...it was always smooth shifting and so forth, so I can not really tell a difference. However, the peace of mind that all should now be OK was worth the 190.00. Again, thanks!

That's good news. Some of you might remember ( as I do) when automatic transmissions (AT) first came out and for several years after how troublesome they were. A common problem was slipping and you were told the "bands needed to be adjusted." True or a rip off,I'm not sure.

I remember driving a 1950ish Chevrolet straight six equipped with a "PowerGlide" (Chevys name for the AT at that time) AT and how sluggish it was between shifts.
