5r55 Transmission failure prevention

After reading that it is fine particles that the filter can't catch coming from the clutches that causes servo bore and other wear, is there another way to rid it of those particles without requent fluid changes?
How about fine filtration? Is there a way it could be plumbed into the system to catch it? I am thinking of the bypass type filters available for engines.
Could it be plumbed into one of the cooler lines or would the oil overheat due to to little flow through the cooler?
Ideas welcome, thanks.

Part Detail


There are many out there, this is just one. ^. Up there.

Fluid changes are vital in todays, transmissions.

With computer controls even a smidgen of contamination can wreak havoc.

Pan and convertor fluids should be changed, along with filters, regularly.

If filters become clogged it is an indication of junk from clutch or band material.

A transmission overhaul MUST have a cooler line and cooler flush.
In many cases replacement of the radiator cooler is mandatory.
