I would like to know how one can tell when it is time to change band linings. The linings I have are Kevlar and have maybe 2000 miles on them. How long should they last?

If your linings are Kevlar they should last longer than 2000 miles.
If your car is going from low to high smoothly and stopping well they are probably ok.

I don't recall ever seeing any pics on the forum of worn out Kevlar bands.

Kevlar bands have been advertised to last the life of the car with average driving.

The last time I changed the oil, I noticed a bit of lining material at the drain plug. This concerned me and prompted my first question. Is it normal to find this material in the oil?

Keep a loose adjustment with those Kevlar linings..... history has taught us Kevlar will damage trans drums.

I haven't any experience with Kevlar, just wood liners.

Daniel, do you have one of these installed under the transmission cover? They help catch any fuzz that may form.

If not, while you have the cover off to install one, inspect the drums to see if any of them are cracked or have a rough surface that may be causing the bands to fray.

Mark, I have not yet installed one of those filters, but have thought it might be a good idea. Thanks for your advise.
