    tranny drain bolt gasket?

    I just read a diy on changing the tranny fluid and he said to change out the tranny drain plug gasket. Is it really necessary? He also said to change the gasket for the oil drain plug when you drain that and i never changed mine or has it leaked.

    nevermind I went ahead and changed it without replacing the gasket. put in 1 quart of synchromesh and 2.7 q of reg 75w90.

    Yep, I just went ahead and bought several of the oil plug ones and a few of the tranny ones just so I would be prepared.
