[DML] Re: Manual tranny leaking at drain plug

I have the same problem with my automatic transmission.  A new seal washer and drain 
plug should fix the problem.  Seal washer is supposed to be used a couple times and then 
replaced.  Try cleaning the transmission case threads before installing the new plug.
