Silicone seal?

Last year I changed my gasket on the transmission pan. The new one was made
from cork instead of rubber like the original Ford gasket. (1990 Ford
Taurus). Anyway, now it's leaking. Would it be safe to use clear silicone
around the outside of the case, instead of removing the pan and putting in a
new gasket? Does the tyranny case get hot? Will the silicone be safe-or
will it burn up?

Thanks,

Nino

Re: Silicone seal?

I suggest doing it right and only having to do it once.... the original
gasket would have likely been re-usable (all Ford trans pan gaskets are now
and they work very well). Even if you get the case and pan perfectly clean,
the fluid will leech between the metal and the silicone causing a repeat
repair.
