Be to let the things cool down before you get started. The cat converter stays hot for a long time and can give you a good burn otherwise.
The dealership has the AA Plug Adapter Part # 68021352 (for my 2006 Chrysler 300 Touring) for around $15.
Place an oil pan underneath because when you swap the housings, a decent amount of fluid will come out.
Turn the Yellow plastic dial counter-clockwise to remove the wire plug. Do not mess with this plug, especially the orange o-ring on this plug.
What you will be replacing is the plug housing that is still in the transmission.
Use a 7mm socket to remove the small bolt in the center of this plug. Make sure the screw is completely free so as not to do any damage to the valve body when you remove the black housing.
Go ahead and remove the housing and allow the fluid to drain. Up to a quart of fluid will come out.
Replace the housing with the now one, lining up the marks. Put your fingers inside the housing and use a little muscle to get it in, then tighten down the bolt.
Reattached the wire harness, add a quart of fluid, and you should be back in business. If you have lost a lot of fluid, be sure to take it by the dealership immediately to check the level.

Hello, this is probaly your rear main seal on the back of your crankshaft. I would check and see if it is a two piece or a one piece main seal. You sound like a knowledable mechanic so this would not be to heard if you have taken a oil pan gasket off a ranger. I have a ranger and did an oil pan in a parking lot without jacking it up and removing the motor and shock like the manual says so I know that takes some skill. So, look up the seal in your Haynes or Chilton Auto Manual and I would replace this seal. Oil near your starter and the back of the oil pan is a classic sign of a rear main seal. Now, to get the seal in out you can refer to your manual and just remember to torque your rear main bearing cap to the proper torque when your done and also try to clean the bottom of your oil sump screen while your down there that would be a benefit later on. A tip to get a stuck seal out is to take an old wire tester the one that looks like an ice pick; this can push out a stuck rear oil seal very easily. I hope this helps your problem and I wish you the best of luck. If you have any other questions just email me ok.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.
