I changed my tranny fluid & did the cardinal sin, threw out the stock pan gasket Embarassed Wasn't even thinking & used the cork gasket with the new filter...ugh..
The car is parked for the winter while I tinker with it, so its not a huge deal, just a nice growing puddle of shiny new fluid on the floor & the pain of doing it all over again! I was careful & torqued the bolts to 12 inch pounds. After the leak I cranked them down a little more but that only slowed it down.

So is the Fel-Pro gasket a good option? Its Fel Pro part#18717 & its rubber with the steel insert like stock. I also found one from ATP but I'd rather go Fel Pro or dealer on this one.

Thanks for any ideas!

I have used cork gaskets in the past (even with silicone on both sides of it) on a Subaru and they still leak, so it's not just you. I have used Felpro gaskets in the past w/o any issues (upper and lower intake manifolds), but I have no experience other than the stock gasket (and of course, cork) on a transmission pan.

I'd probably spring for a new GM gasket and not worry about it. It's cheaper in the long run to get a gasket you know will work than have to change the fluid again.

Bummer. The factory gasket is $35, & reusable. When I changed the gasket & filter I just dried the gasket, put it back in the trans, & haven't leaked a drop. The cork gasket that came with the filter looked sad, & was thrown out. GARY
