did a fluid and filter change. 1000 miles since the last one. wanted to inspect the fluid. a little black stuck in the pan and a fine powder on the magnet. but what concerns me is the shiny particles and tiny flakes suspended in the fluid that is not magnetic. have been monitoring and this is present on the last 3 changes in the last 3 years.

normal? I'm thinking good.

i guess the real question is where its coming from. torque converter or trans. being non magnetic its gotta be brass or aluminum.
