At 70,000 miles i had to replace part in the trasmision that made a rattling sound, Similar to one of a catalic converter.
It was a shaft that went from the oil pump to the torck and the spline on the shaft were eaten up and made a rattling sound when driving close to wall or park cars at low speed. Now at 85,000 miles starting again.
Is it going to let go if i continue to drive in this condition. If so what should i look for the next time when i get it fix so it does not repeat again. The tramision shift fine and engages properly.

Your suggestion would be greatly appreciated

    I recommend going back to the place that helped you with your problem last time and have them assess whether or not you're heading for trouble again. This could mean that they fixed something, but not everything that needed to be fixed, and so you're just going to end up in the same situation.
