black beauty is on a distinguished road

how many miles does the truck have? the warranty just expired right so im thinkin 100k but anyway have you ever changed the tranny fluid before, i don't know if the maintance schedule is the same on mine its every 30k.
now about the metal shavings the fluid most likely got bad enough it just wasn't taking good care of the lubricating.
in my experience their metal shavings (whats the truck made of, metal) it happens and will go away i would just give it a good flush and give it a little bit of time and then just change it
