How many miles on it and what year car. 6R80 or 10R80 trans. I am not seeing much put of the normal except for very dirty fluid and a few small particles/slivers of something. Are the particles steel, aluminum or sealer and the buildup of fine steel on the magnet is normal wear in of all the steel parts of the tranny.

I don't see anything that sends up a red flag myself.

I would just have the filter, fluid and all external seals replaced and have it reinstalled since I don't see a huge amount of friction material in the pan or any other red flags. You will just be wasting money to have it rebuilt and possibly end up with more issues than just a fluid leak.

Just my humble opinion.

Back in the pre 2000 vehicles the normal trans fluid change intervals were every 15k but with today's improved fluids I will still change every 30K myself. Its the pay me now mindset versus pay me more later game.
