Can somebody tell me what type of filter is located in the transmission, Paper or screen?
I cannot find a definitive answer to this. I have a flush/fill scheduled at 3pm so any links or answer is welcomed!

I'd try to PM Zspot, but there's no guarantee he's at work today.

Edit: Or you could try calling him at work (I think he works at Briggs Buick GMC....Phone: (785) 379-3721)

The media is a Fabric Filter.

A plastic upper housing with Fabric Filter media inside with a plastic or metal bottom cover ( the plastic or metal bottom cover depends on which brand you buy.)

The filter slides into the bottom of the Transmission and is held by a gasket/insert ring. The gasket insert comes with most kits and the old one must be forced out of the transmission and the new one tapped into place.

and a flush is a bad idea, what you want is a drop the pan, drain and fill.

Flushing causes more harm than good and is not recommended by any manufacturer. The only people that recommend it is the shops that spent all that cash on the machines.

Thanks for all the replies!

It isn't a true flush or maybe I am unaware of the true meaning.
in this instance- machine is hooked up to both feed and return lines.
The pan was dropped, filter replaced, machine fed the car with new transmission fluid while the bad was pushed out into the machine drain.
They were a Chevy dealership.

Basically a flush, real bad for a transmission, it not only removes the fluid, it also disperses sediments throughout the transmission.

Doesnt matter if it was a dealership, they are the worst offenders
