So I went to the tranny shop today...

And they couldn't remove either the drain or the fill plug in the AX-15 tranny they were seized . Said something about aluminum housing and steel drain plugs, is this standard/normal? If so, any idea's on how to get them out? He didn't want to break the tranny housing by taking an impact gun/air chisel to them so I'm not sure how much torque he put on them.

Tell him to put down his purse & try again. It may be somewhat stuck but he was really only trying to cover his ass in case he did split the case (rare). He would probably strip out the nut first. I would not be going back to his shop any time soon if he couldn't figure it out. Other than it might be slightly difficult to get them out it kinda sounds like he was trying to set you up for a rip off. Find another shop if you can't do it yourself.

He is right on one point. Steel and alum. dont like to be torqued together. They expand and contract at different rates and the steel plug will often time get stuck.

He should be able to get it loose with an impact without any damage to the tranny. take it somehwere else.

Thanks for the advice guys. Jones, he's a good tranny guy, used him before for my other vehicles, he just didn't want to bust my tranny and cost me a fortune. Total bill was $50 to change the trans case fluid and no broken tranny. Guess I'll have to break it myself.
