I have been asked a question on what is flack in the transmission and I dont know can someone please help???

“Flack” sounds like a slang term used to describe metal shavings/particles (not good) or possibly, in the case of an automatic transmission, clutch/band friction materials.
In what context was the word used? Did Iffy Lube tell you that you need a transmission flush because your trans is full of “flack”?
