I'm wondering if anybody has experience with what to do with a leaky transaxle plug. It's torqued down all the way but I'm getting noticeable drips right under the plug. Does anybody know of a sealant I could use, or a solution for fixing this?

Have you tried pipe thread tape? I've never had to seal one up (yet), but the tape or maybe a thick spray like copper gasket material. I'd try tape first, and build it up if necessary. All FWIW of course...

I've used PTFE/ thread tape and successfully but I use a smear of Elring Dirko sealant now as it works more conveniently and it smells good as a bonus!
