non bmw tranny info needed



the tranny oil cooler ruptured on my wifes american POS.the tranny cooling lines run inside the radiator so the tranny fluid and the coolant intermixed.
so i flushed the cooling system after changing the cooling system.that part went ok.then i proceded to drain the tranny but since there is no drain plug,i was going to drop the pan and drain the tranny that way.
when i was removing the bolts that hold the pan on the tranny,one of the corner bolts cracked the casing and a chunk of the case broke off.#$&@
my question is this,do you think this can be repaired with silicone.is there any pressure in the bottom of the tranny?i know there is pressure in the upper part of the tranny,but in the bottom where the fluid and pump is?
please help before i take a sledge to it.
forgot to mention its an auto.

The bottom is just a pan, no pressure on it other than the weight of the oil, JB weld the shit out of it, and then put silicone on it (but only on the outside). Should be fine.

i put jb weld on it and everything is good.except,under braking there is a jolt when the car almost comes to a stop.when an automatic is accelerating the the gears go up,so when braking does it gear down?

make sure you have enough transmission fluid in it. it will do that if its a bit low. even hard left turn will cause a slip in the shift.

i checked the fluid and it was full.i was thinkin maybe the hiccup was due to air trapped in the tranny?
the wife asked me if it was due to something she did?i told her yes,for buying a north american throw away car.she didn't find it funny.

make sure you check the fluid level in the tranny with the engine on.

... I'd never touch an automatic BMW.... makes chrysler tranny's look like a gem.
