If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.............................Possible causes po758: - Low transmission fluid level - Dirty transmission fluid - Faulty shift solenoid 'B' valve - Shift solenoid 'B' valve harness or connectors - Shift solenoid 'B' valve circuit is open or shorted What does this mean?
