Auto transmission oil pan slammed - now leaking.

took it out for some easy trail cruising, came across some gravel piles and was almost getting high centered knew i should have called it a day but the climb over the last one kinda mashed the pan up a little. ive been home for a while now its leaking a bit at the rtv sealant.

unfortunately, i have the transmission skid plate but did not install it yet.

basically, the pan can be banged out a little. gonna need new automatic trans fluid and rtv for gasket.

its an 06 rubicon with 42rle, might as well replace the fluid while i am at it.

what fluid do you suggest? anyone have specs for it?

please? i have about 2 hours to have it completed so the faster the (helpful) response the better.

pics to follow in a sec.

its a good time to get a new pan. they're only like $15 at the dealer. for that cost, its not even worth swinging a hammer.

fluid = Valvoline, Mopar or Castrol ATF+4

Yup. Pan requires use of a new magnet.

Magnet #4446728 List price $2.80
Pan #5285912AC List price $10.00

i think i should be fine, with new fluid, rtv, and a ruber mallet, maybe a ball pin!

3 pics of the pan, and one for the road.

Actually he might already have that magnet being a 2006 he possibly already has the latest "upgrade" to that pan..which equals a little more (1/2 quart maybe??) ATF+4 than you had with older design.. at that cost I would get a magnet though...gas is that much.

what is not listed is a new filter. I think that was closer to 20 bucks and might as well do that while your in there. It was a dealer item only along with pan/magnet..

filter #52852913AB

For $15, replace the pan. You'll end up spending a lot more than that trying to get it to seal.

Sure, whynot. Here's some stealership jargon:

NOTE: One of the oil pan bolts (5) has a sealing patch applied from the factory. Separate this bolt for reuse.
2. Loosen pan bolts and tap the pan at one corner to break it loose allowing fluid to drain, then remove the oil pan.
3. Install a new filter and o-ring on bottom of the valve body and tighten retaining screws to 5 N·m (40 in. lbs.).

NOTE: Before installing the oil pan bolt (5) in the bolt hole located between the torque converter clutch on and U/D clutch pressure tap circuits Fig. 1 , it will be necessary to replentish the sealing patch on the bolt using MoparŪ Lock AND Seal Adhesive.
4. Clean the oil pan and magnet. Reinstall pan using new MoparŪ Silicone Adhesive sealant. Tighten oil pan bolts to 19 N·m (165 in. lbs.).
5. Pour four quarts of MoparŪ ATF+4, Automatic Transmission Fluid, through the dipstick opening.
6. Start engine and allow to idle for at least one minute. Then, with parking and service brakes applied, move selector lever momentarily to each position, ending in the park or neutral position.
7. Check the transmission fluid level and add an appropriate amount to bring the transmission fluid level to 3mm (1/8 in.) below the lowest mark on the dipstick.
8. Recheck the fluid level after the transmission has reached normal operating temperature (180°F.).
9. To prevent dirt from entering transmission, make certain that dipstick is fully seated into the dipstick opening.
