On the gm tranny pan plug , I found that GM used permenent lock tight on these drain plugs. When I have had to remove these type pans , I heat the plug till it glows red then unscrew it. One time as I was heating up the plug the lock tight exploded out. good thing I had safety goggles on.

using a small propane torch heat until it glows red but not too much, then place the cold tool on the stud/plug this then shrinks the plug as the gradual torque is applied it will release.
must remove pan first !
trying to remove this plug vehicle 1 yr old 15,ooomi. I applied so much torque prior to the heat process that , the pan was flexing. that told me permanent lock tight. this then I found on other pans of this vintage.
because of the linkage exhaust and other components the fluid removal before droping pan sure does make it much less of a mess.
