Leaky Transmission Pan Gasket
So, I'm on vacation this week and decided to tackle some maintenance. Everything was successful, except for the tranny (it's an automatic). I got the transmission drained, mating surfaces cleaned, gasket cleaned and put her all back together. However, the pan leaks like a sieve along the entire back.
I've disassembled and reassembled twice now. Gasket is aligned perfectly, hand tightened all bolts to finger tight, and torqued to 89 in lbs in a criss-cross pattern. Son of a gun still leaks. I've read that the gasket is reusable, and by all accounts it's not ripped up. Anyone else have trouble doing this job?
