Anyone know if there is one for the Aztek?  I'm tired of dropping the pan every time....

Seriously?  No one has a transmission pan with a drain plug?  Anyone ever drill and tap one into the existing pan?

I have seen one drilled and plug tapped into it. I actually own it, its on a 4t60e i bought by mistake thinking it was a 4t65e. Same pan though.  I have also seen a replacement pan with a drain plug for sale somewhere,  but i think it was expensive, maybe like $150?

Thanks....I saw that one at ZZ but can't justify.  Dorman has one I"m going to give it a shot hoping it won't leak.

Clean the mating material with soft scotch brite and use the rubber seal only or use good rtv silicone.  Don't use a cork gasket,  don't double up silicone and a gasket.
Also put a new filter in,  i recommend a wix filter, comes with a decent rubber gasket. Link below.

Yep, not my first rodeo.  Acdelco gasket and filter for me.....the last gasket I installed was from ZZ....thought I'd go back to stock with the questionable Dorman pan.  I'm nervous it's not going to seal properly, but I dropped a straight edge on it and it looks good.

Next to nill Grin......but I've done most of my own regular maintenance on all of my cars since '88.  I prefer working on my motorcycle...stuff is a lot smaller!  Thanks for the help!

B&M Hydro makes a plug. All you need is a 1/2 inch drill and you're in business. Used them for years on my Aztek. get them at Auto Zone.
