    I bought a 3.99 tranny drain plug from pep girls, It cost me ten times that in downtime. These cheesy things use a rubber o ring that tears as you tighten it, the threads are not tapered and they leak like crazy. I bought a 7.99 B&M unit which uses tapered pipe fittings no o ring and dosent leak. Save yourself some work and get the good one.

    Thnaks for the tip, you can also buy a tranny pan with the plug already on it, but that would be more expensive. :)
