Yea, the tube needs to slide down into the trans quite a bit. At least 1/2". Had the same problem. The tube/brackets were bent (not by me, but by the POS mechanic I took it to), not allowing the tube to be inserted far enough into the trans.

If you are sure the tube is going down far enough then must be the wrong o-ring.
