The dealer wants $46 for a new pan and $10 for the gasket which really is just a liquid like glue he said that I put around the edges of the new pan. I don't know the name of the transmission I have but I know that I have the 4.7L and the 2WD, 4WD Hi, 4WD Lo and the N settings on my 2002 Durango. I want to save some money by purchasing online but I couldn't find anything, even at rockauto.com. And also, is the parts guy right, is there a gasket I need or do I just apply this solution? Thanks!

You two are putzes...he's looking for the PAN and gasket.

$46 for a pan doesn't sound bad at all to me. The trans you have is the 45RFE (5-45RFE is the same).

Just use silicone gasket maker for it. You only need a bead that is 1/4" or a little less in diameter to seal it well. The size of a normal pencil, for example.

While you're in there, change the filterS. Parts stores will have a WIX brand kit, comes with both filters and a cork gasket if you choose to use it (I don't trust cork).

Looks like I'll just buy the sealer and pan from the dealer, and I'll buy one of those WIX Automotive & Light Truck Transmission Filters Product Code: 58843-EA from AMSOIL.com for $48 along with their Synthetic ATF. How much ATF do I need if I'm just doing a drain and fill? How much does the transfer case need if I'm just doing a drain and fill for that too? What type of tool do I need to refill the transfer case? Thanks!
