We found out checking the magnetic on the allision transmission and changeing the small inexpensive filter pays off, I was serviceing a bus and changeing the engine oil and part of the oil change is changeing out the spin on filter and checking the magnetic and makeing sure the magnetic is there. I found a unusual amount of metal filings and knowing the 5 year warranty was running out in a month, sent the bus to Penn and sure enough, even though the transmission at the time was working fine with no visible problems, they found a bad bearging caused by an improperly machined gear. By makeing sure the magnetic is in place and changeing the spin on filter at regular intervals saved us having a bus going down while on a route or field trip and several thousands dollars by finding the problem before end of warranty.
