There are 2 bolts from the valve body in the pan and the rest of the bolts were loose.

How many miles on it?
Trans service never performed on it???
On the plus side, the fluid looks dark but not burnt.

I also read not to drop the pan to service. Looks like you made a good choice.

Maybe that's because they don't want people finding bolts in it?

those automotive engineers are such funny guys; they are always leaving extra nuts and bolts around just to give you something to think about. You find them on a lot of jobs
