Horribly Seized Tranny Fill Plug
 
I've about halfway stripped it. I have BASIC hand tools. Any tips or tricks? AX15 on 98 TJ.

PB blaster Or any good penetrating fluid & let it soak in.
Drill partial hole and use easy out.
Drill total and retap.

RockyWrangler98 08-04-2011 02:27 PM

Thanks for the ideas, but I meant hand tools, as in no power tools. Lol

Drill, refill, and hammer a cork into the hole.

RockyWrangler98 08-04-2011 02:30 PM

Don't have a drill, and the possibility of metal shavings getting in the transmission scares me anyways...

Does the cork help the fluid get better with age like a fine wine? :)

Do you have a magnet to catch the shavings as you drill slowly?
When I work with conduit I do that to keep metal from falling into the electronic drives I install.


Edit, never mind, just saw no drill comment.

LoL,, so I'm slow on the take off. That's why I'm not a pilot.

RockyWrangler98 08-04-2011 02:35 PM

Any ideas involving a hammer, wrench, screw driver, etc?

Cons_Table 08-04-2011 02:36 PM

Just drill it out...:rofl:


I would try soakin it with pb blaster or similar to see if that helps break it lose.

Oil it, let it sit for a few,, lightly tap with hammer as you try to tighten it just a little.
Work it tight & loose while tapping.
It's a last ditch effort, but it sometimes works on machines I repair.

I'm an 18 year old college student. A girl, at that. If I bought one, I'd never use it again, and wouldn't even have anywhere to use one.

X2. Its amazing on what you can get loose with a hammer. You dont have to beat the sh*t out of it, just a few good whacks. Heat works well, maybe try to get it off right after running your jeep for an hour or so when you got it at running temp.

GoldenSahara00 08-04-2011 05:27 PM

There is stuff better than PB you can try but I can't think of the name.

Get a propane torch and heat around the plug in a circle.

RockyWrangler98 08-04-2011 08:21 PM

Soaked in PB blaster, hit it with a BFH, used a wrench/hammer combo, to no avail.

RockyWrangler98 08-04-2011 08:58 PM

PB blaster, a wrench, BFH, and woman power. I won!
