This is the dipstick tube block off plug and it is pushed into the transmission when the factory fills the transmission for the first time when the truck was built, just through it away.

While changing the transmission pan gasket and filter i noticed a piece of plastic in the pan. it is about 2 inches long and looks like a mushroom with an o-ring on the head of it. i cant figure out where...

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

That yellow plug is from the factory. They use that to plug the dipstick tube hole before they install the dipstick tube to keep the fluid from running out. Just throw out the yellow plastic piece. When they install the dipstick tube it pushes the piece into the trans pan where it stays until you change the fluid and throw it out.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

After removing the radiator drain plug and flushing the system, I replaced the plug , added fluid, and now theres a leak coming from the drain plug, and its tight. the plug is plastic with a "built...

Hello: Yes, There should be a rubber gasket on the drain plug. It must of come off when you removed the plug. I don't think you can just purchase the gasket by itself, you might can purchase a new drain plug at a Auto Parts Store or at a GM dealership. Check the drain pan you used to drain the radiator it might still be in there. Normally you don,t have to completely remove the plug to drain the radiator.

I have 1995 toyota camry with 2.2 liter engine.I installed a new oil pan gasket,and valve cover gasket,cause there was alot of oil leaking from that area.All the work was done about two months ago.there...

I have the same car and the same problem. I can see the oil shooting out at the (upside down) rear, right side of the oil pan. This side of the oil pan is covered by a piece of plastic foam. There are no bolts on this side of the pan. Toyota recommends grey Formagaskit to seal the pan. The natural flow for this leak is all over the bell housing. The piece of plastic foam is attached to bell housing inspection cover. Good Luck!!!

On the intake there is a pan the gasket usually hardens and pieces break off allowing oil from block to be sucked into intake (I am assuming you have performed compression check on all cylinders and thier OK) You have to pull the intake to get to this pan.

Leaking oil pan gasket

Check the pan to make sure it is not cracked or warped. Also notice where most of the leak is coming from. When you took off the old gasket, did you scrape off all of the old material? If you used a screwdriver to do that, you may have nicked the metal and created a path for oil to leak. If you didn't scrape off the old material and any RTV sealant, you will want to, using a plastic scraper. There are sprays that dissolve this material too if it is too hard to scrape off.

If that area is nicked badly and you haven't used RTV sealant, you may want to put a small amount all over the area that the gasket will cover, not just the nicked area but the whole area that the pan gasket will cover- it doesn't take much and if you smear too much on, it will just ooze out and make things messy - just a fine coating will do.

As you tighten up the bolts, make sure you tighten in an alternating pattern as they begin to contact the gasket and get tight so a bolt on one side get fastened down as often as one on the other side gets fastened to avoid warping the pan.

Hope this helps.

Flushing the transmission

To change the transmission fluid make sure you have purchased: 1. filter with the o-ring 2. MOPAR ATF + 3 Type 7176, p/n 05010124AA fluid (I believe it took 6 quarts?) You are not changing the torque converter fluid so there will not be 12 quarts needed.). 3. Pan gasket. You should receive the new neoprene reusable pan gasket. This is because the recommendation is to change the transmission fluid every 25,000 miles. 4. There is a fluid additive to prevent foaming? Use it.

Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Remove the pan bolts. Remove the old gasket material with a plastic scraper. There could be metal transfer if you use a metal scraper. Clean the pan carefully. Clean the magnet that sits in the pan as it collects the minute metal shavings. If you see an excess of larger particles, you really should have the transmission inspected at a shop. Replace the filter carefully looking at its arrangement before removing. It took a second look to install a new filter because I did not watch how it was situated before removing. Use a thin coat of transmission fluid on the new pan gasket. Orient reusable gasket properly with bolt holes and assemble oil pan and gasket to transmission case. Tighten oil pan bolts to 19 Nm (165 in lbs.). CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL TRANSAXLE. DO NOT ADD OIL IF LEVEL IS BETWEEN: LOWER HOLES FOR WARM OIL (100?F). UPPER HOLES FOR HOT OIL (180?F.).
