This is a simple question but for me after looking online i got confused about this. My transmission is leaking and to start off i was going to try to tighten the pan, can i just tighten it or is there a specific tightness. The logical thing would be to just tighten but online ive read there is a certian tightness.
 






ummm have you figured out where it's coming from?
 






i haven't dulged to much into it yet just noticed spots under my car and saw it was tranny fluid and looked up and saw red fluid around the pan where it meets the rest of it. figure i'll tighten it tomorrow and see if there is more spots, but what i was asking if can i just tighten it or is there a specification to how to tighten it?
 






12 lbs but the gasket could also be toast, won't hurt anything to give it a try
