Filler Plug on Tranny Seized

Has anyone had the filler plug on their tranny seized? I know it's a common on suspension. But a tranny? Or does all metal seize over time. Anyways, I was going to spray some WD-40 on the bolt and give it another try in the morning. Does anybody know anything better than WD-40?

What about the heat created while driving? Or do we only want to heat the bolt and not the entire tranny?

use the right tool, I have never seen a steel bolt, the tranny drain, seize into an alumanum housing, its probably just really tight. the drains are super tight on hondas, if you need heat heat up the alum housing a little.

if you can get an impact wrench on there throw it in and put the torque on low, it will come out

or use a breaker bar

it's just tight. use a high quality socket and a longer driver. you don't wanna round that thing. on another note... isn't one of the tranny plugs just a straight 3/8 inch driver??

mine was siezed mind you my car was 15 years old and probably never had the tranny oil changed. had to take a chizel to it to loosen it up (think about hitting the bolt so that you turn the bolt) and then use a socket or a 6 point wrench

If u haven't had your tranny serviced, i don't suggest u changing it. Putting new and fresh oil could damage your tranny if u haven't changed your tranny oil for like a long period of time. I'm not talking like 4 years. U said u had it like 15 years.

Ya, just leave the old oil in there, new oil is really bad for things, especially those that use oil and need maintenence. Oh ya also never change your engine oil, and if you do, put use old oil!
Really though, why would new oil wreck your tranny???? I have never heard of that before??? Hmmm, Puzzling

You also have the option of filling the transmission through the VSS hole. Just a tip.

I think he really meant to say that a tranny flush would do some damage, or should I say "not recommended" to any transmissions deprived of maintenance for an extended period of time.

I know what he was trying to say, and if that were true that a maintence deprived unit may not be reccomended for any kind of service, then I havent herd of that. But I was just poking fun at the fact that anything that takes oil as maintenence would probably benifit it when serviced, knowing whats going on in there, I have been trying to figure out the logic behind that statment, but I keep coming up short. Hmm oil lubricates, cools and carries away dirt and debris, why would dirty oil be better??? Really who cares how old the oil in there is. I have heard of some people never changing thier engine oil and after 20k thinking about it and finally doing it then shortly thereafter, having a failure but that is due to damage caused by dirty oil, the failure is enevitable. If someone can explain the logic to me then I would gladly apologize and call mysef a moron!!! But to the original statement I was just kidding around!!

i did mine today, and mine came off with a simple forceful twist of a wrench (of course it was on a lift which made it easy). very easy.

also, to fill it the vss way, you can overfill unless you know exactly what your tranny takes and you measure that out before hand.

VSS is the easy way, but you run more of a risk if dirty and crap fall into the tranny. I dont reccomend it.
