It would probably be best to get one from a salvage yard instead, because enough force to cause a crack, is also enough force to warp it. But assuming you have no choice, most shops would probably charge about an hour, at a $75 per hour shop rate, plus the 6 quarts or so of AFT they need to replace, and $10 for a new gasket. They would probably braze it instead of welding, since it is not strength related.

1998 ford windstar 3.8 rusted through oil pan leaking Estimated cost to fix... Can something be done other than replacing oil pan ?


I had a similar problem with my Pontiac Grand Prix. I solved it by buying some windshield sealer (available at an auto parts store), finding a short sheet-metal screw, LIBERALLY applying the glue to the screw, and screwing it into the leaky hole. I drove the car for years like this - NEVER had another oil leak, and sold the car.

How much transmission fluid does a 1998 sunfire gt 4 speed auto take? I've changed the oil and don't know for sure how much to put back in?


3.8 in the pan and about 6-8 liters in the tran if it is a downstairs check plug then its is pritty easy to check. There is a little 11ml bolt on the right side of the tran pan that you pull out while the car is running and in park if fluid comes out your good, if not top it up cycle the gears and try again. best of luck

Where is the transmission dipstick on 1998 Pontiac Sunfire?


This model doesn't have a trans dipstick. To check trans fluid level there is a plug on the right side/passenger side above the transmission pan about 2 to 3 inches.The plug has an 11 or 12 mm head on it. Remove this plug while vehicle is running and at operating temperature if fluid comes out of the where the plug was then the level is adequate. To add transmission fluid there is a red or black plastic cap on top of the transmission on the driver side.You will need a transmission funnel to add to it if fluid is need.

Spring left out


unless it has trans fluid all over it,the answer is no.There are not any real big spring in the trans.If it 's operating normally then it did not come from the trans.does it look broken?Most thing you will find in a trans pan is clutch material.

2000 Pontiac Sunfire GT needs new rear bumper cover


Depends on whether it is broken cracked or just scuffed. Repaint of the scuffed cover between $200 and $300. If cracked or broken a good used bumper is about $150 buy you usually have to paint and install. The total cost could add up to $500.00
If you are lucky to find a good one you do not need to paint in your color it is about 1 hour labor to replace.
