In addition to what Wayne has said.  I'd roll the trans on it's side and pull
the drain plug and check out the magnet.  Black powdery is ok, bits and chunks
of metal.... not so much.  Check out some of the fluid in the sun light, if it
looks metallic, it might be a concern.  Also, check out the fluid type.
90w.... depending on where you are located, you'll probably need to replace
the oil pump.  If he wants $50 or less, I'd buy it just for parts, but maybe
those days are over.
