RE: [DML] How tight is too tight?



A brilliant suggestion by someone on the DML some time ago - Do not ever
drain you transmission until you are sure you can get the fill plug open
first...

That's one area of the car that doesn't require a lot of tourqe. If you
get
them too tight, you will split the cork gasket and it will leak no
matter
how much tightening you do.

This is what I was told to do (and did):

Finger tighen all of the bolts and give them 1/2 to 3/4 turn with a
wrench.
No leaks.

If you split your gasket, you will have to drain your transmission and
start
over again if you want to stop the leaking in that area.
