1999 Ford Taurus 4.3L SHO with leaking transmission seal

Is there any way of fixing the leaky front seal on my transmission with out pulling it and the engine out? I've used 3 different brands of stop leak but it didn't help. It leaks out about a gallon a month or a drip every 6 seconds.

Thanks, Jay

Nope. You can lift the car and drop the cradle and try that but no matter what you will need to seperate the two from each other to r/r seal. Try Lucas trans treatment for leak. That may help. Depending on how bad leak is.

Leaking transmission fluid on a 2000 ford taurus. i think its the axial seal. How would i fix it?

If it is the axle seal, the you will need to pull the axle on the side that is impacted/leaking. The seal will come out, you will need to get a seal puller, and then you can put the new seal in.

What is the procedure for replacing the front and real main seals on a 1993 Taurus SHO auto?

This is fairly involved, essentially easiest to pull the engine. But you will need to get to BOTH ends of your crankshaft to reseal. BE CERTAIN that both are leaking as ANY leaks manifest as rear main seal leaks....because of gravity and air currents of your car.

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

Front seal

You can do it and it will be messy, but much cheaper than $80/hr at a shop, provided you have the time. Best thing is to get a repair guide at an auto parts store (Chilton or Haynes) and with the text and pictures, you will know what to do, how to do it and what tools are needed.

Good luck. I did one and learned alot about other things going on with my car.
