Your first step is to diconnect the battery. Then comes the hard part you must pull the transmission out of the car and put it on a bench or work table (for ease of working). After this you must remove the torque convertor and there is a seal ther and also a seal for the front pump. Ifyou replace both make sure everything is perfectly clean before installing any seals or they will leak again. Transmission fluid is very thin and will find gaps at seals due to dirt very easily. After seals are installed reinstall trans and fill with the proper fluid as per owners manual. Start car and leave it warm up while checking for leaks and recheck the fluid. If everything looks good road test and recheck. If still fine just keep an eye on it and drive away.

The V6 Mustang Auto transmissions from 1999-2004 Auto transmissions will be compatible as the speedo sensor will be digital in them. I believe the 1994 - 1998 are all analog.

How often should the automatic transmission fluid fluid be changed in a 2003 Mustang?

Ford calls for every 90,000 miles in the maintenance schedule, as a long time ford dealer tech I think that is to long, for max transmission life do the change every 60,000 miles.

Transmission front seal leaking what it cost to repair

if it is the front seal, you did not indicate whether manual or automatic, but the seal is generally 15-20 bucks, its the labour time that costs the most, my suggestion is if its manual, possibly think of doing the clutch at the same time, or if its automatic, having a tourque converter service as well

Check the transmission fluid level and cleanliness.
If it is low, add fluid. If it is dirty or smells burned, take it in to a decent transmission repair shop and be prepared to mortgage your home.

What automatic transmission is a code p in a 1996 mustang gt. I think iy is a tremec t56.

your car has a ford AOD-E if it's an automatic, if it were a 5 speed manual it would be a T-45, the T-56 is a 6 speed manual transmission that was found in the 2003 and 2004 cobra models.
