Only if it is not leaking trannys fluid.


put a bit of sealant under the gasket, should pe ok. best thing, take the pan off, put a vice grip on the bolt (if you can grab it) and replace it. try with a screw driver/cisel maybe or extractor if it is hard to remove.


Drill and retap is the sure way...
