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.

So 12ft lbs just dont go crazy if you do it by hand use a 1/4" drive ratchet.
