4l60 trans problem
i have a 91 caprice classic 5.0 305 and the torque converter went out i dont want to say blow up but the inside came apart now i was told when they do that it puts metal shavings in your trans and embeds in your clutchs. i tried to shack out the stuf in the converter and nothing came out what im getting at is do i have to rebuild or should i just take the pan off and check for shavings befor i get parts.

yea when the converter goes it take out the tranny the metal gets into the clutches valve body and governer causing shifting issuses or no upshifts
