disconnect the line from the cooler Connect a hose to it and run the
engine to pump out fluid, add fresh fluid and run till the fluid comes
clean. THEN drop the pan and change the filter and clean the pan.
Check for metal. Reconnect cooler line. Replace the pan and refill to
proper level. It will take a bit of extra fluid this way, but it will
be done right. You want a drain pan larger than the trans pan to place
under it, and a large sheet of poly under the pan to catch what gets
away on you, and a bag of non-clumping kitty litter
For the amount of trouble it will give you if it leaks is it worth
saving perhaps $17.00?? It's your call. At the very least I'd clean it
up and appl,y some "right stuff" silicone - and if you don't have THAT
on hand it will cost as much as the gasket - or very close. Don't even
THINK about using household silicone caulk.
