It is much easier to take out the sub frame and remove the tranny from underneath the car. Be sure to support the engine from the top with a strap or chain. I would not reccomend trying the rebuild yourself.

Might want to remove the pan and look how much debris is in there. they can draw debris into the filter for like 15 minutes until it just wont let any more fluid go by then trans will neutralize. when you let it sit the debris by gravity falls back to the bottom of the pan. If this is the case changing fluid and filter may be a temporary fix but honesly when theres that much debris in there it needs rebuilt--in fact sometimes after fluid and filter change they wont move at all. The thick fluid and dirt provides some pressure. Hope I helped. Thanks

Replace the tranny

The engine and tranny need to be removed as a unit. You can pull it or you can drop the sub frame with engine and tranny attached.
If your doing it in your home garage and don't have a lift, pull the engine and tranny out, take the hood off to make room.

The job is not incredibly difficult the wiring harness will probably give you the most trouble, LABEL IT!!! and snap a picture or two so you can remember its routing. i would recommend you get a manual for the car and follow its directions, or take pictures as you work so you don't end up with extra parts.

As for where to get a transmission, the dealership of course of you want to pay way to much for it, most parts stores can order transmissions in either rebuilt or new and they have warranties so just call around to the part stores. And then again there is always the junk yard if you want to take a chance.
