      Works great and no leaks as some of the others have . The one draw back is it sticks about a inch below the transmission pan when mounted on the bottom, but could be mounted on the side of the pan

        This can be used for its intended purpose or installation of temp sensors for engine and transmission. Simply remove the pan, drill hole and install. I found the gaskets inner hole to be too large so I bought other gaskets to install on the inside and outside.

        Piece of JUNK

            Comments about Needa Parts Transmission Oil Drain Plug Piggyback 1/2-20:

            This is the biggest piece of junk I have ever purchased. I tried to install this on a 2014 Ram 2500 to help ease the mess of doing a transmission service. Well this was a huge and costly mistake for sure. The first plug I had that I installed stripped when I tried to tighten it. I expected the assembly to break, but no the threads stripped. So that there tells me the materials were junk. So now that I already committed to it, I had to go get another one. Well now that I got one put in, it started to leak a week later from the drain bolt. So now after tightening it up, I moved the drain assembly and caused a secondary leak. So now I have to drop the pan and LOSE 2.5 gallons worth of fluid at over $5 a qt and do this whole process over again! I am not happy by any means!

                    I installed this drain plug on my 07 Cadillac CTS 3.6 LT. Installation is simple. Find the best place on the pan to install it and use a 1/2 inch drill bit to make the hole. When drilling the hole start small and slowly work your way up until the hole is tight enough for you to be able to insert the plug with a little force using a socket wrench. (The 1/2" bit did it for me) One of the plastic washers goes inside the pan the other outside. Tighten the big nut that goes inside the pan very tight to ensure you don't leak. On the other hand tighten the small drain plug bolt just enough to secure it in place without over doing it. Before putting the pan back on the car check it for leaks by filling the pan with water. Note that I did not use any silicone, just a small enough hole to where I was able to screw the drain plug in with minimal force. My only con is that I wish it was a smaller design. Now I flush and fill my trany fluid every time I change the oil since it's so much easier now.

                        The part I bought was under #65241 and looks just like the photo but said Dorman on it. The design simply does not make sense.... it uses two hard plastic washers to seal the plug body to the oil pan....... these MUST be backed up with a high grade sealant (e.g. Permatex #1) but the design also uses an o-ring under the center drain bolt head which simply cannot work... as it simply twists out from under the head, even under minimal torque. The o-ring must be replaced with a copper washer of suitable size.

                          What size are the threads of the actual plug, not the threads that fasten to the pan but the plug itself.

                          looking for drain plug to install in transmission pan. Will this work? Looks just like the B&M trans plug I bought before.
                          Thanks

                            This part is universal and not a direct fit for your vehicle. This is a one size fits most.
