I think I would call them and complain first. Seems like the threads in my torqshift were a pressed in part. If its the same on the 4r100 then the pan may need to be replaced or possibly stake the pressed in part with a punch to keep it from spinning.

Even better - obviously my preferred method involves a bright blue light. Soak it good with some carb cleaner and dry for a while to avoid swiss cheese.
