Default Thrust Seal/Gasket?

A chunk of it fell out of my tranny pan yesterday while changing the filter and gasket!! We didnt know what it was until The tranny guy at my bro'* shop confirmed it.

I'll be keeping an eye out for transmission slipage.

What is going to happen to this thing next? I havent even owned it a month yet!!

A thrust washer is a bad thing to lost. When i overhauled my transmission the 4th gear washer was in 4 pieces floating around in the case. If you lost a washer, that means that hard parts are now running on eachother. I don't know if it means your clutches will start to slip, but it'* definately gonna put a lot of heat and stress on any of the hard parts that are now rubbing against eachother. <--- Bad. Keep an eye on your fluid and change it in another 5k miles or so just to see if there'* an unusually high amount of metallic flakes and/or chunks in the pan.
