    I noticed a leak at the transfer case fill hole/plug of my 1996 Tacoma. Is this plug bolt supposed to use a gasket? There is no gasket there now and I'm wondering if this is the issue.

    Anyone have a suggestion where I could mail order this bolt and gasket rather than driving 40 miles round trip to the nearest dealer?

    Thanks!

    There should be a Copper crush washer there.
