First oil change. Pulled drain plug, prior owner had Teflon tape on plug. Started the heavy sighing, plug threads in but doesn't tighten enough to crush the new washer. Snugged it up to the tight point with a few wraps of tape. I know it's 12mm but anyone know the pitch to get a tap in there?

you can buy a double drain plug. it's a larger self tapping plug with a smaller threaded plug inside. that's the easy way but if you go that route be sure to dry the hole completely and jb weld it in or else it will come out with the smaller plug every time. ps. gotta be jb weld it's the only cold patch that I know of that expands when heated(like your case) either way get all the metal filings out of your trans case. retapping is the better option.
