    Hi, My daughter's transmission fluid drained out. Looks like the main seal. Car will not move as transmission is dead. Pulled the pan and there were fine metal hair fibers stuck to magnets. There was thick sludge on magnets as well. I'm guessing that the transmission is "Toast". Looking for a...
