You will need to drop the transmission enough to get the new seal in there. Might want to get a Haines manual at the auto parts store. I am guessing you have the 4.0litre straight 6? Is it an auto or manual? I replaced this seal on my Wrangler with the 4.2 and 5spd.

How do I change and replace the transmission seal and filter. How do I know if I need to replace the head gaskets.

The rear transmission seal can be changed without pulling the transmission. The front seal requires the transmission to be separated from the engine. To change the rear seal you take off the drive line and use a seal puller. Head gaskets need to be replaced if you find water in the oil, have an overheating engine that runs rough or if the coolant smells like gas. One way to tell is to do a compression check on all cylinders.

My son has been doing something called doughnuts?in his car .so has split the main feeder pipe .i have changed that .but now there is fluid dripping from somewhere behind the engine could this be something...

dougnuts are never a good thing. the front seal on transmission could be leaking,if so the fluid will be will drip down between the engine and transmission. if so, the transmission will need to come out fo r a replacement of front transmission seal. if it's clear fluid,it may be a bad steering rack. if it's black oil, it could be a bad rear main engine seal. if bad rear main seal,that transmission will need to come out for replacement of rear main engine seal.a abd rear main engine seal will also leak down between the engine and transmission and be black oil. check for color of the fluid leaking to give you a starting point to diagnose what to look for. thank you for choosing

My transmission leaks what should i replace

There are at least 5 places on the Automatic transmission that can over time, and mileage develope fluid leaks. Front converter seal at the front of the transmission,pan gasket in the center,dipstick tube o ring at the center on one side ,speed sensor o ring,and the tail shaft seal at the rear,of the transmission.
Place a flat piece or huge card board,under the engine and transmission,after driving you will see where the fluid,red in color is dripping. Its easier to spot exactly where the leak is comming if you can look under the car,while it is running, The easiest leak is the pan gasket,the dipstick tube, and the speed sensor,then the rear housing tail shaft bushing and seal.
If the front seal(converter seal) is leaking the transmission will need removed,and the seal,and maybe even the front pump bushing Replaced,it would be a good idea to replace the bushing esp if it has high mileage,80,000 or 100,000 miles of use.Change the fluid and the filter,while repareing the leak or leaks.Is a good idea.

Dumped all its transmission fluid is the rear seal

Could be the rear seal but for the oil to come out that fast it is usually under pressure--Check ur cooling lines-if they are ok u might need a front seal.

Both front and rear seals on transmission leak and need replacing

That is alot of work. It would **** to have a mechanic paid to do this but unless you are pretty good with a wrench and have a hoist and such then it wouldnt be worth your time. Normally what is required for something like this is supporting the vehicle on jack stands and removing both front tires. Once front tires are removed you would then have to remove the axles which includes the brakes/rotors and what not. Once the axles where removed you would unbolt the transmission and remove it. Now the problem is if the engine is supported by a mount that bolts to the transmission you are going to have to support the motor with a hoist or jack until the transmission is installed. All in all it isnt really alot of work if you know what you are getting yourself into and have all the stuff you are going to need ie jacks/hoists/plenty of tools and a good weekend. Also remember all the small stuff that might need to be unbolted to clear the transmission
