Transmission Gaskets : Paper, cork, rubber and silicone are some of the materials used to make transmission gaskets. Transmission gaskets fit between metal and or plastic transmission parts to seal the parts from leaking transmission fluid. Some transmission gaskets even seal the valve body and help keep the fluid pressures contained in the proper veins of the valve body directing transmission fluid into the proper channels.
When transmission gaskets leak, problems can occur. Most transmission gasket problems cause visible external leaks of fluid from the transmission. Some of these transmission gasket problems can easily be repaired in the vehicle while other transmission gasket problems will require removal of the transmission. A few transmission gasket might even require a transmission rebuild to repair if the transmission has to be fully dismantled to replace the gasket in need.
During most transmission filter replacements, a transmission pan gasket is required to finish the job. Getting a transmission gasket replaced should not be a disaster for your vehicle. You just need a good transmission mechanic that understands fully how to replace and repair your transmission gaskets.
