Well, i have leakage, bad leakage. first time with the gasket, 2nd time no gasket just blue rtv, 3rd time grey rtv. still leaking badly!! Oh, when i finally poured the old fluid into a couple of one gallon jugs, I didnt even fill up one of them. less that 4 quarts! But i added 6 qts. Did i screw up my tranny, or what can i do to fix it! I really need help, my driveway is a mess and my wife is PISSED OFF!! Please help, thankx
You can only put 3 qts or so in it if you remove the pan....so you OVERFILLED it? The 2 qts you lost was part of the overfill.
I used a screwdriver and tapped in a front corner and mine popped loose...you don't want to overtighten the bolts or warp the sealing edge of the pan in any way.
I'd say...put a good filter in it...add 3 qts or so...use a rubber gasket....and then try it. They tend to be sensitive to fluid level so it might take a while to get straight?
