Trans HELP!!! ML 350

I have a 04 ML350 5 Triptronic, I swapped the Radiator last weekend and I am trouble with the ATF flow. What's the torque setting on the bolts? They have a hole through them, I believe is for the fuild to flow openly I apparently didn't tighten them properly, and was leaking, then over tightened them and was restricting flow, I started hearing a whine and headed straight home but was having trouble shifting. Topped of fluid but im still hearing a whine, and some leaking from a hole on the sides of them gearbox, I may have overfilled it I had the plug in them engine bay pop off when I started it up and ran them engine. There's two fittings im not certain im adjusting the right one, please help!
