I did my trans fluid early this am. Drain plug fell in the catch can and I scooped it out prior to reinstalling it to refill the trans.
I put it in, tq it down to spec and fill up the trans. Now...I know I took note that there was no washer on it. Thought..weird. I guess they didn't find it necessary to use a washer for some reason. whatever. went on about my business and as I'm dumping the oil in the empty cans...found the missing washer I guess they did think to use one. I just had a mental lapse and for whatever reason didn't bother to look in the catch can prior to reinstallation.
SO this is my question. I don't suspect it'll leak. Not worried about that. More concerned about the tolerances above where the top of the drain bolt will sit. I'm going to assume that I have enough clearance between where it would top out at against any internals. Anyone ever have the trans open that can verify that? Or at least, anyone else ever skip on the washer and everything turn out ok?
I know I'm probably worried about nothing but worth asking around anyway!
