Does the check engine light come on when you start the car? Was there anything in the bottom of the pan when you changed the fluid?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
no check engine light and the magnet was pretty full of stuff but no chunks of stuff I also don't think the transmission has been serviced in a long while I also checked to make sure pump was working by taking plug out and starting car to make sure fluid was moving and it spray all over pump works
