drop the pan, change the filter and a fresh gasket and you will be good!!

Please remember that if the gasket on the trans is the ribbed with metal inside (factory gasket) that you clean it and keep on using it as long as it'* not damaged.

Well, I got the pan dropped (on the boss'* dime). I'll have my own transmission adventures some other time.

It leaked because the pan bolts were very loose (some could be hand-tightened, I was told), and a few had fallen out. Aside from that, the pan and magnet were clean, the gasket was in perfect shape, and the bolts torqued up just fine. Plus, no more slipping or TCC shudder!

Then we discussed my recent cam install, my HID'* (why yes, I've heard of DDM Tuning, too!), the joys of Purple Power on a rainy day, and GM Forum might even have another new member soon.
