Question about 1988 Jaguar XJ6
My car leaks transmission fluid when you pour it in-the gears shift and was told they are fine that my front pump seal needed to be replaced and a rear seal for 2500.00
I can get a rebuilt trans for that! how hard is it to get under there and do myself with a mechanic friend of mine?
The two seals should be fairly cheap. the seal itself shouldnt cost more than 5-10 dollars for each one. its a little round ring looking piece of metal with a rubber lining. to fix the front pump seal you'll have to drop the whole transmission and remove the torque converter which (will slide off without complications). the seal will be right behind the torque converter attached to the transmission... it should just pop out and the new one should just pop in. Fro the rear seal all you have to do is take out the drive shaft from the transmission and the seal will be on the end of the transmission.. it should also pop out and the new one should pop right in also. However, if the transmission was drivin with little or no tranny fluid and would not go into gear ..( meaning it would just go into high rpms and not move) your gears are probably shot. If it hasnt been drivin an easier way to tell if this may be the case is to look at the tranny fluid and see how dark it is. if it looks like motor oil instead of transmission oil its probably burnt up... if thats the case it will also smell burnt.
