4G A/T drain plug gasket

Planning on doing an ATF change soon, and i can't seem to find the part number for the 4g GS 4 speed transmission drain plug gasket. Any Ideas? Or at least the size so I might be able to find a comparable one.

Thanks!

On mine I just got one of those hand pumps and a 5 gallon bucket and stuck the tube down the dipstick hole and pumped 4-5 quarts out of it that way, I know it’s not the best way but it sure worked for me, make sure the car is off obviously, then I dumped the same amount of fluid back down the dipstick hole with new Chrysler ATF+4 fluid and proceeded to check the level properly by driving it around through all gears at operating temp and checking the level while parked on the dipstick as the owners manual said

Chrysler ATF+4 is the right fluid to use and it stopped a leak I had from the front gasket on my trans

Oh wow, never thought of that, how long of a tube did you need to get to the pan?

What's the gasket look like? I'm surprised it's not just a crush washer

From what It looks like its just a washer, from the guide that was given in this forum, theres a part number for the GT A/T but I cannot find one for the GS. Could be the same one even. But I'm liking the method PCfreak gave, as either or I would have to cycle twice to get most of the fluid out.

Gotcha. So it's probably a crush washer.

If you knew the size, I could probably send you one in the mail for the cost of the stamp even. Or any mechanic shop should have them sitting around.
