Anything transmission related, a line, a gasket, a seal, if its coming out right where the motor and transmission come together it would be a front seal.sometimes they dont stay in place when replaced and need to be staked in.

How to replace a oil pan gasket 2003 mercury sable


1st. Can you remove the oil pan without partially removing the engine? If - YOU CAN'T - take it to a local ASE Professional. Concerns: 1 - rear main seal, will it be damaged when you remove the oil pan. 2. Front oil seal, pan seal, same concern? Lets assume you can remove the oil pan, ok, ... you MUST get the TWO gasket surfaces clean, smooth, I mean REAL CLEAN. SIT THE oil pan with the gasket surface up and flat, ..CLEAN THE GASKET SURFACES AND EVERY BOLT with QUICK EVAPORATING brake cleaner or acetone. Let then dry. Get some Permatex spray "red" gasket glue/sealer. Spray the pan side of the gasket with the red glue, carefully lay the gasket on the pan, use the bolts to locate the gasket, make sure the gasket is seated against the pan 100% around the edges!!!! Let the gasket dry overnight!! Then spray the face of the gasket with the red sealant before installing, do it while its still tacky. tighten all bolts finger tight, then start a criss cross pattern, start slowly tightening them (WITH A QUALITY TORQUE WRENCH) TO 50% OF RECOMMENDED.VALUE, keeping the criss cross pattern to 75%, then to 100 - 110% of FACTORY SPECIFICATION. This should stop all gasket caused leaks!!

I have a leak somewhere in the tranny line on my 88 mercury cougar. how do I check for certain? every morning there is a puddle of tranny fluid underneath the car. It still has fluid in it and shifts but...


To make this as simple as possible, the trans lines go from trans to radiator back to trans. The question is where is puddle? If near radiator, then radiator must be going bad or you have a crack in radiator where trans fluid circulates. If in front of trans then front seal in trans is bad, if in middle then pan gasket bad, if in rear the rear seal bad. Hope this helps.

Tranny pan gasket replacement problems


The (top hat) is a filter seal. If you did not change that seal then you may have damaged the old seal(still in the trans). You can remove the pan and take the filter back down. Look at the seal close, I would replace it. You can bend the old one, carefully with a screwdriver and get it out of the trans case. Tap the new one in with a socket. If your fluid is black,or there is metal in the pan then you have damage and the trans will have to be rebuilt.
