Topic: Leaking A/T Fluid Pan Help
Long story short, I changed the transmission fluid in my 2002 PT Cruiser. I cleaned all the residue on the casing, got a new gasket, however I stripped 3 of the 14 screws. There’s thread at the beginning but the threads at the end are gone. Now there’s a small leak.
My thoughts are,
1. It’s all aluminum casing with steel bolts, could I use slightly longer bolts?
2. The bolts are M8 1.25, retap and thread to 5/16-24?
3. Is there some sort of substance I could put on the outside of the transmission seal to help seal it?
Any thing is helpful, thanks!
