How to change the transmission gasket on a 1988 chevy Silverado


Changing the transmission gasket on any car..
You need to drain the transmission fluid - if you get under the car you will see the transmission pan drain plug.

Drain the transmission fluid and then remove the small bolts that hold the fluid pan to the transmission body. You may need a blunt screw driver to break the seal/lever the pan off. Be careful when levering as you don't want to damage the mating surface of the fluid pan.

With the fluid pan removed use a blunt screwdriver to scrape off the old gasket from the pan and the transmission body. Apply a thin smear of sealant to the pan and place the new gasket onto it - line up the holes in the gasket with the bolt holes in the pan.

Lift the pan up against the transmission body and put the bolts in finger tight to hold it into place, then tighten with a socket to pull the pan tight against the transmission body.

To refill the transmission with fresh fluid (don't use the old fluid) have a look on the side of the transmission itself. There will be a filler plug that needs to be unscrewed. Alternatively, you can rig up a funnel/tube and fill the transmission via the transmission dipstick tube. This method takes longer but it tends not to be as messy as filling the transmission via the filler plug.

However, before you start any work on the transmission gasket check that it is actually that gasket at fault. Fluid above/in front the transmission pan can point towards a leaking torque converter.

HOW TO CHANGE A TRANSMISSION SCREEN IN A 1991 LINCOLN TOWN CAR AND HOW MUCH DOES IT USUALLY COST?


You'll need to remove the 14 pan bolts on the bottom of the transmission, leave a couple in until most of the fuild drains out. Remove the pan, and remove the filter. The filter and pan gasket should be under $20.00, and you'll need 3 quarts of transmission fuild to refill, about $10.00.

I have an 03 Lexus LS430 with 64K miles. Trans is


The weakest link is on the transmission pan gasket.

You have to buy the transmission service kit.

The kit has the pan gasket and the transmission filter.

My cost is only $38........dealer is a lot more.

Use Amsoil Synthetic ATF if possible. It will help increase the service life of the transmission

My 2001 ford windstar's transmition is leaking.


This could be caused by multiple components failing. what i have seen most often on the windstar is the transmission pan gasket leaking, which is maybe a twenty dollar gasket between the pan and transmission, very simple to do, just requires removing between 10 and 20 bolts and replacing the gasket, then refilling the trans. i have also seen lines leaking going to the transmission cooler, which are more expensive and much more involved than the pan.

I need change the automatic transmission fluid Explorer 2002 E.B.


There IS a transmission drain plug on the 2002 Ford Explorer! It is, however, difficult to get the fluid back in as there IS NO dipstick (tube) to refill it. I installed the pan bolts far enough to hold the pan up (level) and then stuck a hose (attached to a funnel at top of engine compartment) through the opening between the pan and the bottom of the transmission. I was able to put five quarts in that way - no more as it will overflow (trust me). You can check other sites on how to check to see if that's enough and how to add more as needed. That's not simple either. Great idea Ford Motor Company (sarcasm) !!!!!!

Car will not downshift upon acceleration..."kickdown"


Most affordable possible solution is to give it a transmission tune-up. Transmission number one problem is neglect. Change the oil, filter and pan gasket. You'll probably need to take the pan off, very messy job. Take the pan off, carefully scrape all old gasket material, clean the pan with dish washing soap, dry it completely, put a bottle of Lucas for transmission in the pan. Put some Indian Head Gasket Shellac Compound on the pan gasket surface. Set the gasket on the pan, keep the gasket on the pan for three minutes then install. Don't put any Shellac on the transmission gasket surface nor on the gasket. Follow recommended directions for filling the transmission with oil.
