    I can't get my transmission pan to fall off! All the screws are out and I've hit it as hard as I can with a runner mallet and still won't come off. Any suggestions??

    Maybe try a few paint can openers, if u can shove them in the gasket and pull? assuming you have all the bolts out.

    Be careful you don't bend the pan lip then you will need a new pan in order to get it to seal, if it were me I would use a stiff sharp putty knife and see if I could get it between the case and the pan.

    I'd look at a oil pan assembly diagram to make sure you didnt miss any hidden bolts.

    YES! Sharp putty knife and hammer always worked for me! I have done several pans that way and none leaked after resealed.
