oil gasket

Do I have to unmount the transmission to change the oil gasket on my 03 v6 mustang?

Oil gasket? Which one? Rear main seal? Oil pan gasket?

For the rear main seal you'll have to remove the transmission but the oil pan no. It's going to be real hard to take it off though

Thanks for the info. I think my oil is leaking from the rear main seal. I'm going to save up money so I can get a new clutch as well since they have to remove the tranny.

If the leak is coming from in between the engine and tranny it probably is the rear main seal. Once you get that replaced I suggest you flush your tranny fluid and change the filter as well because oil may have gone in there. I have the same problem with my 01. Seal is about $30 and they quoted me $300 to fix it. I would do it myself but I don't have a lift or transmission jack

I'm not entirely sure. Haven't worked much with standard.

No filter just fluid and you dont need a transmission jack just man handle that *****!! Haha but it does make it a lot easier. Just jack the the car high enough to work under it.

You want to come down and hold my transmission for me??? Hahaha you could save me $300. But yeah, jacking up the car is probably the hardest part

They wear out over time.
