Help Replacing an Automatic Transmission Seal
I just bought a 1990 4 cylinder automatic mustang, which my brother has been fixing up after the previous owner let it sit for about 5 years. After performing a heater core replacement with fear and trepidation, I though I was set to go, but then all the transmission fluid slowly leaked out during my commute.
I was able to buy a jug of fluid and limp home, and the local mechanic shop gave it a free inspection, and confirmed the leak was coming from the main seal. It's $26 for the seal and $500 for the tax and labor to have them replace it. I don't exactly have piles of cash laying around, so I'm probably going to end up undertaking this myself. Trouble is, I've never done this before.
Has anyone else replaced this seal, or at least dropped the automatic tranny, who would be willing to tell me how to go about it? I have a Haynes manual, but I'd prefer to have a human with some experience to run to when I get stuck.
