Transmission Drain Plug Leak
I have an 86 cj7 with Borg Warner T5. The drain plug is leaking and wondering best solution. I’ve tightened it, still leaks. Wouldn’t be a big issue, but it leaks about teaspoon a week or so. It also runs down tranny onto skid plate and makes a mess. Thinking of draining, using some rtv, and then refilling after it sets up. Good idea, or bad? Appreciate the help..
I use Permatex Super 300 on the threads of drain/fill plugs. It has other good uses as well. It is non-hardening.

I know you said transmission plug leak... but... I also battle collection of leaky fluids in the crossmember. I have a 258, which like to leak at the rear of the valve cover. Is it possible that both the valve cover and tranny drain plug leak? Just sayin...
Appreciate all the help, I drained the transmission this evening, used the Teflon tape (as per Keith and couple of the other forum members), refilled it with penzoil synchromesh, took it for a spin and got it nice and hot, came home parked it for an hour or so and no leaks. Think I fixed it. Thanks for the advice.
