A mechanic said that my solenoid pack was stuck and if he took the pan off the transmission and there were metal shavings then I would have to get the transwmission rebuilt or replace it. Is this information true?

    Metal shavings in the transmission pan is evidence of damage to a hard part, such as teeth on a drum or from steel friction discs...something that has ground and become damaged. So it is safe to say that with some metal particles in your pan (depending on the amount) that there is some kind of damage that would require the unit to be disassembled and inspected.
