PLEASE HELP! I changed my trans fluid and now my ody is leaking like crazy from the drain hole. I tried replacing the plug with a new one, but that did not help. What should my next step be?

Did you apply correct torque to the drain plug ?
Did you strip the threads ?
Did you re-install the crush washer ? If the old washer was too deformed, get a new washer.

I think I stripped the threads. When I put in the new drain plug there were some metak shavings in the hole. I did replace the crush washer also.

Since you were able to install the plug, it seemed the threads were still good.
Maybe you should torque the plug a little more to force the washer flat against the pan and form a tighter seal ?
