Question about 1990 Nissan Minivan
The vehicle is a Nissan Urvan manufactured in March 1991. It has a 5speed Nissan floor-shift manual transmission. Got under it and from the Gearbox housing towards front where bolts and attachment is, has oil leaking. Does this mean most likely a New Seal needed, (kinda like the Gasket Seal on the Head?). Will this fix it, or may there be a further problem?. Plus what Oil type is required in the Gearbox for this model please and can it be fixed by strong hands or does it need special tools and comprehensive positioning inside to place new seal? Help, thanks Donna

That is alot of work. It would **** to have a mechanic paid to do this but unless you are pretty good with a wrench and have a hoist and such then it wouldnt be worth your time. Normally what is required for something like this is supporting the vehicle on jack stands and removing both front tires. Once front tires are removed you would then have to remove the axles which includes the brakes/rotors and what not. Once the axles where removed you would unbolt the transmission and remove it. Now the problem is if the engine is supported by a mount that bolts to the transmission you are going to have to support the motor with a hoist or jack until the transmission is installed. All in all it isnt really alot of work if you know what you are getting yourself into and have all the stuff you are going to need ie jacks/hoists/plenty of tools and a good weekend. Also remember all the small stuff that might need to be unbolted to clear the transmission
