That would be the oil plug that the factory put in there to keep contaminates out while in production. Just throw that away because it doesn't need to be there anymore.

05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine


This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

Changing fluid in trany


Hello , Nothing to worry about this plug is from the factory assembly line, it is used to prevent debris from entering the trans prior to the dipstick tube being intstalled. Once the dipstick tube goes in the plug is pushed into the pan, and sits there until the first trans service is performed. Just throw it away. If i have been helpful please give me a rating, this helps me out thanks have a great day. RJ

While changing transmission fluid i found an yellow half ball with an stem on it and cant find were it came from,2004 f150


The plug you found is a stop plug that is installed in the dipstick tube hole when the transmission is built. After the transmission is put in the truck, that plug is pushed out into the pan when the dipstick tube is installed.

No worries, you can throw that out. Most people never hear about that because they don't change their own fluids.

If this answer was helpful to you, please rate my answer. Thanks, Rolanddirty.

How to diagnose an oil pan leak


If you have an automatic trans there should be a metal plate just after the rear seal of the motor. If you can remove the shield and see rust, good. If it has red oil, bad, its the trans. You will be able to see if the rear main of the engine is leaking by the oil on the torque converter and flywheel. You may just need to gently tighten the pan bolts which may loosen by themselves.

Need to change the transmission fluid in my 98 corvette


to change your tranny fluid and filter is relativily easy i will tell you step by step here.
1. raise the vehicle and support it with jack stands
2. get a large drain pan
3. locate the transmission oil pand and losen all the bolts removing the rear half of the bolts only and just losening the other bolts to keep the pan held up but allowing it to sag on the rear.
4 be carefull because in this step your likely to get a bath in tranny fluid. insert a flat srewdriver in the back of the pan and carefully pry it lose. now trany fluid is going to pour out of the pan.
5. remove the rest of the bolts be carefull because the trany pan still has a lot of fluid in it.
6. grab ahold of the filter and pull it down.
7. insert the new filter but make sure the rubber gasket came offf with the old filter they have a tendency to stick in the transmission.
8 replace oil pan and torque down evenly
9 refill with correct fluid to the correct level
10 take for a drive and recheck the fluid level and check for transmission fluid leaks
ps when the pan is off clean the inside of it out with brake cleaner really good
If there are no leaks after you get done congratulate your self on a job well done

hope this helps you
please rate me
Thank you
