That is the front main shaft seal. Sorry, but the trans will have to come out to replace it.

How to find where im leaking transmission fluid


Best way is to thoroughly clean the entire visible part of the tranny as looking at it from the bottom as good as possible. Including where the driveshaft(s) goes into the transmission. Run a few miles, jack it up and inspect for trails of fluid to pinpoint leaks. Bad input seal, output seals, and pan gasket are the main offenders.

Transmission oil in the radiator


If the radiator has tranny fluid mixed in with the coolant, then you have an internal tranny cooler leak. At the one side of the tranny, in the saddle tank, there is a tube. This tube allows hot tranny fluid to enter the rad and be cooled before returning to the transmission. It should be totally isolated and submerged in the coolant tank. Occasionally they can leak, and the two fluids will mix. You will need a new rad to repair the problem. It would also be recommended to have the tranny fluid and the coolant flushed after wards. Oil of any kind does not mix well with coolant, and could cause future damage to the tranny more so than the engine.

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

How do i replace a driveshaft for a 1997 lincon cotanental


I searched under 1997 lincoln continental and found this: Driveshaft and U-Joints
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Town Car and Mark VII-VIII Fig. 1: The bolts retaining the rear driveshaft yoke-to-differential flange require a 12mm, 12 point wrench or socket to loosen them 91197p12.jpg
Fig. 2: Remove the bolts retaining the rear driveshaft yoke-to-differential flange 91197p11.jpg
Fig. 3: Separate the driveshaft from the axle flange and . . . 91197p13.jpg
Fig. 4: . . . disengage the driveshaft from the transmission output shaft 91197p14.jpg
Fig. 5: Insert a plug onto the splines of the transmission output shaft to prevent fluid from leaking out 91197p15.jpg
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Mark the position of the driveshaft yoke on the axle companion flange so they can be reassembled in the same way to maintain balance.
  3. Remove the flange bolts and disconnect the driveshaft from the axle companion flange.
  4. Allow the rear of the driveshaft to drop down slightly.
  5. Pull the driveshaft and slip yoke rearward until the yoke just clears the transmission extension housing seal. Mark the position of the slip yoke in relation to the transmission output shaft, then remove the driveshaft.
  6. Plug the transmission to prevent fluid leakage. To install:
  7. Lubricate the yoke splines with suitable grease.
  8. Remove the plug from the transmission and inspect the extension housing seal; replace if necessary.
  9. Align the slip yoke and output shaft with the marks made at removal and install the yoke into the transmission extension housing. Be careful not to bottom the slip yoke hard against the transmission seal.
  10. Rotate the axle flange, as necessary, to align the marks made during removal.
  11. Install the driveshaft yoke to the axle flange. Install the bolts and tighten to 71–95 ft. lbs. (95–130 Nm).
  12. Lower the vehicle.

Transmission wont hold Transmission fluid full quart only lasts about a quarter of a mile how do i evaluate the problem and fix it


well, if there isn't a big pile of tranni fluid on the floor it gets hard. 1. Bad radiator letting tranni fluid into the cooling system. 2. Tranni fluid slowing escaping through axle shafts. 3. a leak someplace from the tranni or tranni lines.

When I press the gas pedal hard and it downshifts sometimes it gives a loud hissing type sound and feels like the clutch is slipping. I have the automatic tranny and the 3.0 on my 02 spyder convertible.


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts. If the fluid level is really low, the transmission may cause the vehicle to not go at all. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

It sounds like something is slipping when you stop and start the truck. I jacked it up and saw transmission fluid leaking from the rear at the yoke


Sounds like your driveshaft u joints are worn out and need replacement and a bad extension housing seal.

My 1997 ford explorer overheated and the transmission slipped


Tranny fluid may have been contaminated with coolant since tranny cooler lines go to radiator or condensor.
I would fix your leak on radiator, then completely drain tranny fluid and filter and replace.

Transfer case replacement


Make sure you set your parking break and block your wheels to keep the vehicle from rolling.Just drop the rear driveshaft, there are 4 bolt that connect it to the rearend and it should just slip outof the transfer case, unhook the linkage, unplug the speedometer sensor/cable, disconnect the front drive shaft I think that on this driveshaft there are four bolts that connect it to the front end and 4 connecting to the transfer case. I think that there are 4 or either 6 bolts that fasten the transfer case to the tranny once you take them off the case should just slip off. If you need to for clerance reasons you can take loose the transmission mount and remove the crossmember support and let the tranny hang down. Be carefull when you let the tranny hang down because tranny fluid will more than likely poor out so have a catch pan handy and watch it when you pull the transfer case off because your going to leak some fluid out there to and also this thing is heavier than it looks. Two people can probally handle it but I recommend using a floor jack of some sort.
