I just changed the transmission fluid and filter. Now I can't seem to get the pan to seal! Drip, drip, drip. I used a new Fel-Pro rubber gasket and the pan is very straight and clean. I started torque on the pan flanges at 10... leak, 12.5... leak, 15... leak, 17.5... leak, now at 20... leak. The TC is not leaking, thank God!

Is the factory gasket the hot tip or do you folks use some RTV? I was planning to try the RTV but didn't want to waste about 5 quarts of new Mercon V.

We use RTV.........

The rubber gaskets suck. I've never had any luck with them, and you tightened it down too far and it is squishing out. I just never trusted anything that you had to torque so little, and didn't have to worry about the bolts being too loose and backing out. RTV lets me sleep better at night.:gringreen
