I talked to a local transmission guy about transmissions
he said that a particle of dirt can get caught in the valve body
He also suggested that GM vehicles should have a fluid changes quite often

I went with a complete flush & changed BOTH transmission filters at 44,000 miles on my Ram & i went with Royal Purple fluid, because i don't think i will be doing it again

Many people drop the transmission pan, pull out the valve body & clean & inspect it, change out the 2 filters & put everything back together & refill with new fluid
this process only leaves 5 quarts of the older fluid in the torque converter & the lines that go to the trans cooler & it mixes with the new fluid when you drive it
