Transmission sump plug

Postby orangelancer » Sat Jun 20, 2015 1:09 am

The 5spd in the LC is losing trans fluid from the sump. II had a look and there is just a bolt and there has always been that. should there be a washer under this bolt or will i need a new sump plug for the transmission. Can't seem to find a new plug for the gear box.

There should be some kind of o ring or washer for a sump plug, if there isnt just put one on, probably a simple copper washer would be easiest

Just a plain copper washer mate, just make sure it fits snug over the plug. Any car parts store will have a pack on the shelf.
