Transmission problem
1998 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles

I changed my filter and about 6 qts of oil in my transmission on my 98 dodge caravan, BUT in the bottom of the pan was some shavings and a bunch of little needle rollers, the transmission works fine, I can expect future problems, where are the rollers from?
any easy fix before total rebuild?
I changed the oil because the oil change people said I needed it flushed and recommendations were not to flush it on a high mileage vehicle.
thanks Don

The must be from one of the bearings. If the trans is still shifting and working good and not making any noise, I would drive it.

Are you sure they are roller bearings? Were they attached to the magnet in the pan?

They were attached to the magnet, they were about 1/4 inch long i/8 dia. 6-8 pieces
it drives fine just makes me nervous seeing the stuff in the pan

The must be from a roller bearing, but it would be making noise if there was a bad one.
