I just did a tranny service, the gasket that came with the tranny kit was junk and blew in a couple of weeks. I just bought the better gasket from the dealer but I don't know the torque specs for the transmission pan. I called saturn and they won't tell me. Please help!

I replaced a ton of those and have never torqued the bolts and they have never leaked unless the pan is bent.
