I would do an epoxy personallyDid the accumulator spring swap. Not too hard of a job. Just went slow and all went well. The accumulator bolts are 97 inch pounds for the torque setting in case anyone wants to know.
Now I know WHY the Dorman trans pan drain plug was leaking. I put some Permatex thread sealer on the drain plug and the sealant came up through the bung gap, as seen below:
QUESTION: Run it as is or maybe put some Ultra Grey around that bung area to help seal it? Maybe the Permatex thread sealer will fill thr gap to prevent the leak?
Otherwise, I have to find another Dorman trans pan but I need to install it for now to run the car again.
