No fight wanted here, thanks for the welcome back.
If I’d have investigated beforehand and known it was an aluminum crush washer on the transmission drain bolt, I probably would’ve replaced it the first go round. I mistakenly assumed it was like most oil drain bolts - most, the Toyota included, have a rubber gasket that I don’t replace. I’m not certain if you can replace them or have to replace the entire bolt. Either way, I never get a drip with those. I replaced the crush washer with a fiber gasket (all that I could get my hands on), and there’s no seepage now. I think in the next 50k miles I’ll drop the pan and change the filter. The things supposed to be sealed for life, but I’m only 44. Hopefully I’ve got a lot of life left haha. Probably have the correct alum washer on hand this time.
Probably should start a different thread, but has anyone used a different atf than Toyota’s WS on a model that required it?
