Drained the pan on This 4R70W and found this piece loose in the pan and don't know what it is or where it goes . I bought this transmission out of the truck , I have gone through the rest of it and looks pretty good for 170000 kms , no burnt clutches , just a cracked belleville return spring . Help appreciated .

It’s a plug from the factory. Tranny fluid probably never been changed. Toss it.
