Question about Mazda 626
Internal seal leaking. Does the entire transmission need to be pulled to change this seal?
Yes, and if the seal is gone and you open it up, you will probably find other issues. Best to take this to a transmission shop.

Transmissions these days need very little maintenance, our fluids are advanced formulas that hold up for an average of 100,000 miles, most vehicle manufactures recommend no maintenance for automatic transaxles these days.As for a transmission flush I don't recommend this because it's an expense that is not needed and possibly could loosen some contaminants setting them loose to possibly clog some of the very small passages in the transaxle requiring full transaxle service,which could include removal,dissassembly,etc of your trans.Now draining and replacing fluid is OK if that makes you feel a peace of mind but normally not needed,if you decide to do that,as far as quantity just note approx. how much fluid is drained and purchase similar amount in quarts and then refill (DO NOT OVERFILL)
start engine, let it warm up to operating temp,then check the transmission dipstick for the correct level,remember the vehicle needs to be on a level surface,hot idiling in park when you check the fluid level. Good luck !

The transmission range sensor aka neutral safety switch is located underneath the air filter on top of the transaxle and very easy to access. Replace this part (around $50) and it will solve your problem.
What happens is this, when your tranny warms up, it disperses heat to the sensor switch and if its faulty or worn out, will send faulty relays to the transmissiom computer module (TCM) and makes the transmission shift irratically (OD to 3rd and back while driving at freeway speeds). You tranny is not overheating like most people believe, its the switch. Mechanics are telling alot of people that their tranny needs replaced. Watch Out For These People!! They only want your money!!

No. The crankshaft pully can be removed through the right wheel well area. (This is the hard part) Once the pully is off, the seal is relatively easy to change.
