So while replacing my Transmission mount, I noticed that the cream colored plastic plug (?) with a small bolt in it was leaking very slowly, though it wasn't loose at all. I loosened it slightly and tightened it again, but it still seems to leak. Is there a good way to make this leak stop? If I take it off, is there some o-ring or something I can replace to stop the leak, and would taking it off drain a bunch of ATF out on me before I could fix the leak? I can't seem to find out what this plastic tag, or plug, is, and I don't want to ruin my transmission by taking it off to look at it if it's going to drain out my fluid. Any suggestions?

Here is a picture of what I am talking about. The cream colored plastic tag or plug is to the right and center, just right of the "W".
That's for the speedo cable which you don't have. Fluid shouldn't gush out if you take it off, unless you're overfilled. There's an o ring that goes in there to seal it up. Either replace that or just put some silicone around it.
I put an extra rubber gasket on it that fit well. I did put a little household silicon on it as extra precaution. I'll try to remember to use high temp rtv if I have any more problems with it. Thanks again!
