Default Re: Automatic Transmission Fluid Pan Replacement

Hi Jeff,
The torque spec for the transmission pan bolts is 165 INCH POUNDS which is 13.75 foot-pounds. That's barely hand tight. The number of bolts plus the give from the gasket is enough to hold the pan.

20 month update. Even though I may have damaged one of the bolts, every time I look under the car at the transmission pan I check and there is zero evidence of any leaking.

That hand pump is great for draining and filling the ATF but replacing the pan with one that has a drain plug is also a good idea. You still have to remove the pan to check the magnet for particles and replace the filter.
