Default Transmission fitting leak.

I have a leaking transmission fitting. The 90 degree bend one that goes into the 5an opening in the transmission. Just seeing if you guys have an idea on what to use to fix it. It may need a new o-ring. Is there a specific o ring that you know of that fits correctly?

I doubt the threads are leaking, but maybe.

The flare on the fitting gets worn. Especially if it's been overtightened. Replace the fitting and may be the pipe too. Take a close look for distortion on both.

I also suggest using a thread sealant so you don't have to tighten the fittings so tight. Something like loctite 592 works well.
