Hey everyone, I'm a new guy to this site, and new to working on Subaru so bare with me for a bit. My girlfriend bought a 2001 Outback wagon 2.5 about 9 months or so ago. It has developed a transmission leak, which in turn it is leaking onto the exhaust causing lots of smoke and smell. I've gotten under there to check it out and it looks as though the tranny pan gasket is the culprit. So I went to NAPA to get a gasket for it and the guy there told me that originally they don't come with a gasket. Seems odd? But anyways, I got one that looks to be the shape of the pan. It is rubber. It looks like now all the pan has for a seal is RTV silicone. I plan to drain the fluid, pull the pan, put the new gasket on there, replace the filter and put fresh fluid in there. Is it that simple? Or can I expect a road block or problem if I take the pan off? Do I need to apply any RTV silicone when putting it back on? Lastly, what is the torque specs for those tranny pan bolts? Thanks everyone for your patience and knowledge and tips!
