Hi all,

I called the dealership today to see if they have the gasket for the transmission drain plug and the rear diff. drain plug. But the guy said I don't need a new one. However, when I read the FSM for 97 OBS it says ALWAYS use a new one.

Anyone knows what should I do?

To be honest, don't recall seeing a gasket on my transmission drain plug lol. I am sure you can get away with the gasket there.

the don't know if the rear diff uses a washer, does the plug have a head on it, i can't remember.
the trans drain plug uses the same crush washer as the engine drain plug. maybe the front diff too.

i have some crush washers available if you need them, 5 for 2.50$ plus shipping, ~1.00$.
10 for 5.00$... etc.

will they work on my 5MT and rear diff? And yes, the FMS said Aluminum Gasket so it's probably a washer.:lol:

????auto front diff/manual trans drain plugs are WAY bigger than the oil pan and trans pan plugs???

Rear diff plug doesn't use a washer/gasket/

If the gasket is copper... flip it over and re use it.

I have seen the aluminum ones split before. :eek:

Front diff washer (copper) part #803926070 $2.37

Rear diff = no washer

Tranny pan washer is the same as the oil drain plug washer FYI
