Gasket is reusable provided sealing surfaces are intact. The recommended transmission fluid is Dexron III. Torque spec for oil pan fasteners is 10 ft lbs. Fluid capacity spec is 7.4 quarts. (bottom pan removal)

usually the rubber gaskets are re-usuable but if they put a cork one in there i wouldn't.
