Default 1500 transmission oil/filters for the first time.

It was a PITA. My 2006 has the resusable gasket but these 2010 1500's do not. You have to use RTV. (I personally use "The Right Stuff")

Brilliant. Not so much the issue of applying the RTV, but removing the old stuff was the pain. About an hour just to clean the pan. No way a service department is going to clean it like that before reinstallation. Unless they are using a air tool with wire wheel or something.
Besides the gasket, no issues at all. Kind cool about them having two filters. And it took more fluid than I figured to refill. (about 7 quarts). Luckily I bought the 2 1/2 gallon Amsoil jug so it was not an issue.
I checked Amsoil's capacity chart and sure enough it shows 6.6 quarts for the 4x4 tranny. http://www.amsoil.com/mygarage/vehic...rl2=2010+DODGE TRUCKS+RAM 1500 PICKUP+T

I guess I'm used to closer to 5 quarts for a filter change.
Really tempted to get the Mag Hitec transmission pan after this ordeal. Anyone have that here? Do they supply a reusable gasket or even a gasket at all?

We most certainly do use wire wheels or Roloc discs on die grinders. We'd lose our collective asses if we tried to do them by hand.

Thanks RamTech I kinda figured as much. It wasn't until 50 minutes into the scrapping and steel wooling that it dawned on me to do the same. Sigh... Live and learn.

I see the point being made about the amount of time and effort involved in removing the old gasket material by scraping, especially when labor rates are involved. However, I was under the understanding that when mating surfaces are involved, such as a tranny pan or differential, using the more aggressive methods mentioned here would lead to fluid leaks because of marring the mating surfaces. I am interested to know more about this, and what Roloc discs are. Thanks.

Hermes1 the Roloc term is referring to the system that attaches any number of pads/discs to a drill or air tool. In this case Ramtech was probably referring to a Roloc with a 3M conditioning disc of some grade or another. They will pretty quickly remove paint, goo, rust without digging into the metal surfaces. Kind of perfect for the issue I had actually. An actual wire wheel (if stiff enough) might scratch the surface.

The transmission filter Kit I buy has the gasket included + the 2 filters. I don't like the RTV route.

I've heard the Mag-Hytec trans. pan does little for lowering temps. Their Diff. cover are a must for the 1500's (just tight)
