Rear transmission seal

I have to wait until my stang gets into gear before I can give it gas like when I put it into reverse I have to wait for a slight jerk but if I put in reverse then give it gas right away then my stang revs up then gives a hard jerk I went under my car and notice transmission fluid coming from the rear of the transmission to where the driveshaft connects my buddy told me it could be the transmission rear seal I just bought this transmission to replace my old one could this seal be the cause of my problems for my 98 mustang gt auto?

Just get the hook tool and pry it out

Then get the new one , and use a rubber hammer and a block of wood or if you have a seal install kit to hammer it back on the transmission

Thank you, yours is nice too man I love that bodystyle , just be careful putting it in .. Sometimes one side will never go in , I sometimes mess up the lip of the seal lol , I do them occasionally at work.

Just be careful not to scratch the inside of the transmission

Your going to have to tug hard on the seal just wedge it in a corner and pull

I used a 2 inch ABS pipe coupling to drive the seal onto my truck transmission.

It worked perfectly...
