Yes.
The gasket is easy to find at any Autozone. Seal it with a little Permatex (blue) for insurance.
*remember to scrape the lip of the pan well, and wipe with a clean cloth. Stagger your bolts on replacement (like mounting a wheel) to get an even seal. Don't over-torque.

A cracked pan can be repaired 2 ways without welding:
Liquid Metal or Permatex.

Liquid Metal is a resin-based epoxy that is sold in auto-parts stores (like Autozone) and will set quickly to a patch that can be sanded, drilled, and painted.
For a tranny pan, heat and pressure are fairly low-level concerns, and LM will do fine.
...if you can't find Liquid Metal (or it's competitors)...

Permatex makes a full line of adhesives and sealants, so get the counter-jockey to help you pick the right model for your application (but double-check his choice before you leave the parking lot, just in case he's an moron...rare, but it happens).
You want the permanent sealant, with mid-range pressure properties.)

Tranny fluid is fairly caustic, and between the 2 options above I would prefer the first for a longer hold.
You will eventually replace the pan, but ther LiquidMetal patch will hold the fluid until you can find a new pan.

For either repair method, a large (thin and wide) magnet to cover the patch is a good idea.

Pick up a bottle of alcohol and a cheap toothbrush at the drugstore, and after you pull the pan you'll scrub in and around the crack with these to get a good seal.

It depends what your skills are. working with cars Yes is a job that you can do, there is few steps that you have to follow to do the job right first make sure that the part your removing is the one your going to fix locate the problem to remove trans pan bolts start from the sides and finish on the center of the pan mean, unscrew bolts from bth side of the pan and the last ones to unscrew should be on the center ones of the pan(do not use any silicone on the gasket, gasket only.) when bolted back start from the center of the pan and finish on the ends of the pan on cross maner and if you know the torque spec would be great if not well can i say, dont go too hard on the bolts. Hope this will help you

Car is dumping oil at front making a sqealing noise like its an oil pump


first check fluid levels --power steering--oil--transmission --if power steering low or out pump will sequel look for blown hose or seal----if oil is low or empty than look under around oil filter [hole damaged or blown gasket ] spraying on belt causing sequel if not filter than trace oil leak possible oil pan damaged or gasket crack or head or valve gasket-----if trans low or empty look at pan- gasket ,or damaged check trans cooling lines to radiator-----these are your leak areas under hood your oil pump is internal in oil pan and you usually dont hear it

I have a 2002 mercury cougar V6 automatic and I know what the problem is. My car needs to have the transmission pan taken out and replaced along with the gasket. My dad and I want to fix it ourselves but...


easy job. Just loosen pan bolts enough to let the fluid start draining from one end. As more drains, keep loosening the pan bolts till you can remove pan and finish draining what's left in the pan. At this time, most people would also change the transmission filter body: it's right on bottom of trans. when the pan is removed, easily accesible. Parts stores sell a kit with new filter and pan gasket included. Anyway, now you are ready to install new pan gasket. Clean gasket mating surfaces as clean as you possibly can. let no oil or fluid get back on there. Place gasket on (most don't recommend adding sealant or gasket compound). Put pan on with all bolts fingertight. Then starting from center outward, start tightening them down to torque specs-it'd be pretty light torque, like around 20 ft-lbs-might want to ask a ford mech. what torque specs are. When done, refill ****** and check for leaks after running car.

Leaking fluid


Only so many places these trans 41 TE can leak on the vans. Lines on top, speed sensors(input, output)one is below the lines the other is to right of the lines. Dipstick tube, trans solenoid gasket, Oil pan & extension gasket. Wipe off & clean area very well. Lines leaking, check clamps first before replacing. Speed sensor leaking replace o ring, Dipstick tube replace o ring, Trans solenoid replace gasket, Extension plate replace gasket If the pan is leaking you change the trans filter & put a gasket on the pan. The book says RTV on the pan, but FelPro make a gasket for the pan $6.99. Use a Chrysler trans filter!!!! O rings for sensors, tube around $3 each, trans solenoid gasket $3, extension gasket $10, Filter $11 + gasket $7 & 4qts trans fluid if doing the filter or extension gasket.

Trans proublem


THE SHIFT SOLENOID NEEDS TO BE REPLACED EITHER INSIDE THE BOTTOM OF THE TRANSMISSION OR ON THE SIDE OF THE TRANS. I WOULD ALSO REPLACE THE TRANS FILTER WHILE THE PAN IS REMOVED. A TRANS FILTER KIT IS AVAILABLE AT MOST AUTO PARTS STORES WHICH INCLUDES A PAN GASKET. YOU WILL NEED ALMOST A GALLON(4 QTS.) OF TRANS FLUID TO FILL IT AFTER DROPPING THE PAN. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.
