Help! 2000 wrangler TJ

I have a 2000 TJ automatic 6 cylinder. I just changed the seal on the transmission pan today. I have not put the skid back on because I wanted to wait till morning to see if it leaks at all. I stated the vehicle and the radiator fan is rubbing on the shroud. What did I do???? When I put the skid back on will it fix it? Does that hold something up and it shifted?

Thanks!

Sound like a bad angle. Did you put a jack or jack stand under the tranny after you dropped the skid pan?

The skid plate acts as the crossmember on your transmission. Reattach the skid plate and the transmission to it and it should line everything back up.

Your lucky the transmission didn't drop to the ground after you started it. This happened to be and it was a world of trouble.

Ok. It is getting dark here now. I was going to put it back on tomorrow. Is that fine? I won't start it. Should I put something under it now?

How do I put the skid back on with a jack under still on the trans? It seems anywhere I put the jack to keep the trans up, will interfere with the skid...

Remove the jack and place it under the skid plate under the trans and , and jack both up to position together.

Ok. That's what I was going to try. It still seems to be dripping. Slowly. If the pan is warped, is there any way to try and fix it without buying a new one?
