Does it matter which way the metal drain plug washer faces when changing the tramission oil? Is there an up or down? It look like there is a small lip on one side. How tight do you torque the drain plug?
I'm doing the ATF change as we speak, just not sure about one thing. I removed the plug and the washer, the washer has a flat side and a rounded side. Does anyone know which side is supposed to face up (and be in contact with the Pan?
I'm guessing its the rounded side on top...
The flat side should contact the pan (be facing up towards the trans). u want flat against flat so when u tighten the bolt down the flat part of the washer crushes evenly against the flat trans pan
