Transmission Drain Plug

Recommended Posts

Well, I did it. Tonight I drained my transmission fluid for about the 5th time since I've owned the car. I try to drain the pan every 10,000 miles or so. I must have had the bolt slightly angled when I tightened it because I stripped the threads from the pan. Anyway, I've ordered a new pan, bolt, crush washer, and pan gasket from my favorite dealer. It is only about $100 total. Cheap education, right?? Oh well, my question is, to what torque do I tighten the pan bolts and the drain bolt?

Also, is there a certain pattern to tightening the pan bolts?
