I would have thought that a normal cork gasket would do, but nobody seems to sell them separately (for a 93 Bonneville).
I suppose the Xmission gasket might be reusable. But I was under the impression(and I do lousy impressions) that when you buy the Delco Filter, it comes with a new gasket. At least when I bought the Delco Transmission Filter(TF236) for my car, it did. I would take the Filter back to where you bought it and tell them that the filter should come with a gasket. I don't think the ol' cork
gaskets are available anymore(or at least they shouldn't be). They were prone to leaking after a very short time. Plus they were a PITA to remove. I'm curious, how much did you pay for the Xmission Filter and how much do they want for just the Gasket???
Also, I too would stick with Dexron III Transmission Oil. If that doesn't clear up the problem, you can either A.) Live with it like most of us(including me) do. B.) If it'* THAT Bad, there are some additives that I have heard that might help(sorry I don't have the name of the stuff at this time) or C.) You don't want to hear about this - Go back to "A"
