Installation Procedure Notice: Any time the transmission and the engine oil pan are off of the engine at the same time, install the transmission before the oil pan. This is to allow for the proper oil pan alignment. Failure to achieve the correct oil pan alignment can result in transmission failure.
Apply a 5 mm (0.197 inch) wide and 25 mm (1.0 inch) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the engine front cover to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
