Question about Cars & Trucks
It largely depends on whether you stopped and shut the car off and did not try to drive it any further. It may be as simple as replacing a blown trans cooler line. Find the cause of the leak first and go from there.

Hello smeet3992: The transmission uses 5w-30 for tempretures up to 95 degreese in tempreture. Uses 15w-40 for all tempretures greater then 50 degreese. If you are in an area that has extreme fluctuation in tempretures I would use the 15w-4o engine oil. I also senrt a picture of where to check the oil at. Make sure you pull the right plug. The reverse idler pin has the same size bolt head.

Some of these have a small dipstick on the top of the transmission it to check and fill. Do not over fill this it shouldn't take to much to fill. You can try that and see what happens. Transmission fluid should be pink or redish in color if its dark or has a burnt smell then you have a problem. See if this information was help full.

common problem for ford. and in these vans. Same thing to the 98 I had. I am a mechanic and couldn't figure it out. Thought pin fell out but linkage moved. Brought in to tranny shop and they ended up getting used on for $800

Well your clunking noise is most likely the u-joints the leaking pan is the tranny pan what you would have to do is get a tranny kit and change the pan gasket tranny filter and fluid or take to a shop and have a tranny service done.

Testimonial: "thanks a lot, man. i will def do what you suggested. Im gonna try and fix it on my own. hopefully i dont mess it up and it works. ha ha. thanks again!"
If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.
