Q: I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring that was leaking transmission fluid on 2004 Chrysler Sebring

It was leaking around the pan, so I pulled the pan, changed the filter and resealed w/RTV sealant and reassembled. It is now leaking again. I'm sure I cleaned up the surfaces and sealed properly. Is it possible this leak comes from somewhere else?

I read something from one mechanic about letting the RTV sealant "skim over" before you mate the two surfaces. I didn't do that. Is that important?
if it came with a gasket I would put a new one on if it just has sealer on it then I would check for other sources for the could be a side cover leaking
