    I was just in the process of changing my trans fluid and I think the last rebuilder cross threaded a couple of pan bolts!!
    Anyway one broke off and a couple other ones were coming out tightly so I tightened everything up for now. <font color=red>Will it hurt anything to be missing one bolt for now??</font color=red>

    I ran around missing a bolt for a few days once. I didn't know it at the time however. I'm not sure what happened to it? I had the tranny fluid changed by the people who put it in (had to have them for warrenty reasons) and checked it, had all the bolts. A few days later I checked them again and one was gone. I just went and replaced it and never thought twice about it.... I wouldn't purposely though run around without one under there. Never know what could happen...maybe nothing, maybe something? Any way to hit a local parts place today and just get a new one and then not have to worry about it period?

    May leak may not. Just check for leaks, don't let trans get low on fluid.
