Your not suppose to use RTV for the transmission. Never use it for the oil pan. The regular cork or rubber gasket is perfectly fine. Torque the bolts to 13 ft/lbs or if you don't have a wrench in ft/lbs then torque to 156 in/lbs
Be sure to go around the bolts on the pan after torquing to make sure they are torqued properly.
But yea never use RTV. It's not a good idea.
