Traded my 2013 Equinox for a 2021 Equinox a month ago. Last week I discovered a leak at the ATF drain plug. It was not properly tightened from the factory. It’s a tapered bolt into an aluminum case so I was careful not to over tighten it. There is still a bit of seepage from the plug’s threads. I’m going to use a torque wrench for my next attempt. The best numbers I could find were 106 in/lbs or 8-9 ft/lbs. Do these numbers seem reasonable?
I’m holding off on the dealer as it’s 25 miles away and my wife can’t drive after eye surgery. I’ll probably end up taking to the dealer at some point.
