transmission pan gasket

Just finished changing both filters and fluid. I decided to use the rubber pan gasket that came with the internal filter. I have a couple of small leaks around some bolt holes, nothing major. I made sure everything was tight, but I am about to crawl back under and re-do it all.

I know the original gasket is reuseable, should I have just kept the old one on?

has anyone else had experience good or bad with the aftermarket gasket? it is thick rubber and flimsy, not rigid like the original.

Thanks

I had sprung a leak just recently (not sure why) and paid $40 for the new ford gasket only to find out that did not do the trick. My friend who is a mechanic took some sealant (forget what its called) and put it on the bolts which were leaking ... problem fixed.

When I had mine serviced about 4K miles ago, and the tech said the gasket that came with the tranny filter was OK, but the stock gasket is reusable, so he reused it...no problems here.

If the bolts are overtightened, it will leak. Once it has been overtightened, the flange around the bolt hole must be taped back out with a pall peen hammer. Tap from the gasket side.

Thanks for the replies.

I ended up putting the original gasket back on with a tiny bead of RTV, it looks like that did the trick.

After looking at the aftermarket gasket, the bolt holes are way oversized. It looks like the gasket was crooked because it was so flimsy and it didn't make a good seal around a couple of bolts.

I'll stick with the factory gasket from now on.

That sounds like a gasket for an e4od pan.

is there a difference in the internal filter(screen) for the e40d? The actual filter looked exactly like the original and fit just fine, only had problems with the gasket that came with it.

There are 2 filters for the e4od, 2wd and 4wd. You can put a 2wd in place of a 4wd but it's not advisable, you can't put a 4wd filter in place of a 2wd. The 5r110w is different altogether.

sounds good, just wanted to make sure I didn't have the wrong filter in it, everything I've read says I have a 5r110w transmission (04f350). maybe just the wrong gasket in the box.

Thanks again for your help

I seem to be leaking but have no idea were it is coming from. defiantly is tranny fluid cause when i touch the drops its red, could it be the gasket for the pan. every time i check the level it is correct so is there also a chance that whoever changed it last over filled it im at a loss, was planning on changing filters in the next couple months should i get the gasket just in case. thanks in advance
