Default Transmission Pan Help

My Transmission Pan is leaking. This has only started after I replaced the fluid. I tried replacing the gasket afterward but it didn't seem to help. Also 3 of the screws just seem to be turning in their hole. Are some of these screws longer than others? They all appeared to be the same. I took the pan off and checked the gasket... it is in place fine ... i have tried different screws (from other parts of the pan) and it doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?

It's an automatic transmission ... I know my other car is a manual and just uses gear oil, but if it wasn't apparent figured I'd mention it.

i just did my trans fluid last weekend and the bolts are all the same size .sounds like you have some bolts that are stripped out . who are going to have to get the ones that are stripped out rethreaded and did you use any gasket sealant . you should have used gasket sealant also

bolts aren't stripped. the threads are fine and they'll work in other holes as well as screw in the hole without the pan there with no problem. do you recommend a gasket sealant ?

the threads in the trans could be stripped out and not the bolts ... I am a mechanic for 27 years on big rigs

it's just one corner that's not screwing it... should i try it with no gasket or maybe remove the gasket from that part and use sealant? or is that a terrible idea?
