Need Transmission Help

Transmission started slipping so am changing filter. Dropped pan and found part in bottom. Any idea what it is? More importantly, where it goes? Appreciate any help offered.

It is a 5.0 L V8 AWD. The transmission has 14 bolts on the pan.

Thanks Daheim111

Answer to mystery

It is a plug installed when the transmission is manufactured to keep contaminants out, When the vehicle is assembled, and just prior to adding the fluids, the tranny dipstick is used to push the plug out and it goes into the pan.
