ok guys i wanted to get seal for my tranny with 175000 miles on it i wanted to know how difficult they are to replace and do i have to take the tranny out of the car to replace them,???? approx how long will it take?
i need to change the seals that i was told are worn that cause my tranny to skip first when it is hot....so do i need to drop it for that/?
Yes, sorry you're looking at a complete dissasembly of the innards to do this repair. There are piston seals on the clutch pistons of all the clutch packs, and the seals of the low/reverse piston have probably failed. Soooo, might as well rebuild the whole trans since you're in it that far. John
Exactly. Unfortunately there is no magic in a can that will repair a transmission.
My advice, buy a cheap beater until you can afford the transmission. I see cars at the local auction for $300-$500 that would do the job every single week.
