Customer Question

I have a 2000 Grand Caravan SE. 3.3L automatic. The only code for check engine light indicated replacing the shift solenoid. I bought it, removed the tranny pan, replaced filter and gasket first. Only problem, 2 of the 13 pan bolts stripped.I left them on, switched out the shift solenoid, and heavy leaking from front side of pan( (facing radiator) which is where 2 front corner bolts are stripped. I removed tranny drip pan torethread the 2 stripped holes with Loctite Form a Thread. My ultimate question is what are the 6 screws between bottom of shift solenoid and drip pan on same side of tranny ( facing radiator)?
