    I fixed the cheap piece of crap.
    All it took was some fine adjustment with some hot lead.
    I cant recommend the fix for everyone but I found it very satisfying to have finally solved the problem.

    I used a 45ACP, very effective, took very little time.

            Trick flow makes a nice deep aluminum pan.
            I broke down and spent the 150 bucks for their kit.
            That and the Moroso reusable gasket solved my leaky problem.
            I trashed a brand new steel pan and the Mopar reusable O-ring gasket that didn't seal. lol

                I tried to get a Trick flow - none to be found anywhere.
                Was able to get a TCI, its OK but was disappointed with the overall quality vs $ cost. So far no leaks.

                              I've posted on here NUMEROUS times about how to install a tin pan so it doesn't leak. It is ALIEN technology so i can understand how patience might be worn thin... But I must condemn shooting an oil pan; or destroying any car part that has no blame except that it was installed IMPROPERLY again and again. Shooting an oil pan only lends credibility that there is something inherently wrong with tin pans; which there IS NOT. Violent acts have their place, but not in the process of repairing MOPARS..So just pull up your big boy pants and admit that you're not a mechanic...and leave it at that.

                              Wrong
                              I have installed many dozens of tranny pans over the last 4 decades the majority stamped steel, dont recall having any issues. This pan gave me trouble right from the day I pulled it out of the box, leaked since it was new. I thought I may have lost the touch so I took it to a friend that owns a transmission shop and had him go thru it - still leaked. Three different mechanic's 3 different style of gaskets, checked rails for straightness - all leaked. Just the money I spent on new ATF would have dam near bought a new cast pan. The original factory pan which I had on/off twice never leaked.
                              That cheap ass piece of china produced crap deserved to die, I just made sure it was quick so no one suffered.

                                Oh, it was the mysterious and elusive transmission pan leak that's been plaguing transmission mechanics in the American Midwest.. Yes, it's been all over the news and we are frightened that this alien phenomenon might spread across the entire country. Dr Fauci is preparing a statement for the nation with the concern that this might be covid-19 variant related, and his facts are to be corroborated by the World Health Organization. In the meantime, old notions that tin pans can be sealed properly without expensive parts and products are visibly shaking on their old school foundations as a dying breed of mechanics find their tried and true methods questioned.
