While it's being fixed, go buy a Magnafine in-line Transmission filter and have them install it in front (before) of the transmission cooler. This will help eliminate some of the metal debris that comes off the transmission. I slapped one on after my tranny flush and I have less hesitation and slipping since I've had it installed. I noticed the improvement almost instantly.

What year? How many miles? Was the fluid clean?

My transmission feels awesome and it's always been cared for, I just want to know if I'm ok, or if I'm giving myself a false sense of security, I want it to last a long time.

If you know your tranny has always been cared for and fluid changed at regular intervals and you aren't too rough on it, it should last you a while. The only other preventative maintenance measure that is typically recommended is a tranny cooler so it runs at a cooler temperature, which will extend the life. If you do those things, the tranny *should* last you quite a while. :)

it depends if the case is ok i think the case is blown apart the way it exploded :ph34r:
ouch, sorry to hear this Al. :( FWIW, I've seen new rebuild trannys for Taurii going on ebay pretty cheap in the past, you may want to check it out - could save you some $$$ if you need a new one. Best of luck with your repairs. :)
