Default Transmission pan Torque spec

I checked techinfo and didn't see any for Tranny pan torque spec .. anyone know what it is for 4T65E ???

Need it by tomorrow evening ASAP.. have notice it was leaking when I was doing oil change and low on tranny fluid.. so I will have to get it topped up ASAP .. check the tranny pan bolt to ensure it wasn't lose from a mech. who changed tranny fluid and filter beginning of the year. If torque matches up.. then I will have to start troubleshooting to see bout gasket and or pan warpage.

Ditto on everything Don said about that flange.

On the pan, the OEM gasket is black rubber. If yours is the same, re-use it. If it'* cork, go back to the dealer and get the right one.

Tighten it in stages, criss-cross.

K.. pan is torqued down.. it seems to be leakin from possibly the passenger yoke seal ( or whatever it'* called.. tranny to driveshaft on tranny side ) But I won't know for sure.. when I know it'* going to stop snowing,sleeting, freezing raining and all that lovely weather crap for a few days.. I"m going to pressure wash the bottom of the car.. and then see where the leak is coming from for sure.. I've been pelted to death by sleets and lieing on cold ground.. the bottom of the car is soaked.. so I can't know for sure till then.. so for now.. I guess I will keep an eye on the tranny dipstick.

Well.. Filled it up last night.. drove to work.. and decided to check the level.. it went back down to what it was.. so I guess the leak is quite severe. Sigh..

Murdock, can you get a pic of the leak? Have Tam get in the car and put it in gear with the foot on the brake. A leak that bad should be obvious.

(do you trust her that much with you under the car? )

Guess I can try that.. buts its way too cold right now.. maybe I will try that during the weekend.. hopefully it will be warmer by then.. woo hoo +1 would be better then wat it is now. I want to wash the bottom of the engine bay area of the car first before I do that so I can find out better and easier where it is.. lieing down on the ground don't appeal to me. It doesn't seem to leak when the driveshaft isn't turning.. but I only left it up on stand for 2 hours and level was the same.

I guess I can trust Tamara as long as I don't talk smack bout horse or get her something expensive for christmas and birthday.
