Tranny pan leak

I have an 04 6.0 350. Went to flush the transmission and change the filter the other day and used the old pan gasket cause the pan said it was reusable and the new filter didn't come with one. Got her all back together, finished replacing my brakes and then went to take it for a test run. When I got back she was throwing up tranny fluid everywhere. Went back and got a dif filter that came with a new gasket, followed the directions, used vasoline on the pan after cleaning it up, put the pan back on again, making sure the bolts were correct torque, and she is still throwing up fluid, not as bad as the first time but bad enough that my transmission light came on today. Don't know what to do besides maybe go buy a new pan. If anyone could help that would be great. Thanks

Sounds like you may have bent the pan. It's always a good idea to hand tighten all the bolts with a nut driver first before torquing them in a cross sequence

I torque them to 65 in lbs. Never had any problems, most common mistake is people don't clean up both serfaces real well. Have to have a compleetly dry seal
