Question about Chrysler New Yorker
The transmission has to be removed, once out of the vehicle, remove the torque converter, the front seal is behind it, using a screwdriver and hammer, carefully tap on the OUTSIDE EDGE of the seal till it bends inward, and then pry out the seal, be careful removing the seal there is a bushing behind it that the converter rides on, wipe the area where the seal seats clean of fluid, put a small light bead of ultracopper silicone on the new seal and tap into the seal seat, carefully install the torque converter back into the front pump, holding up on the center of the converter, and with pushing pressure, spin the converter and you will feel it slip on 3 notches, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT !!! the converter has to be seated all the way back into the front pump, install the transmission, fill fluid level to full, and you are done,
After you have the transmission installed, the converter should spin free by hand to align the bolt holes with the flex plate, if the converter has pressure against the flex plate, and will not turn by hand, DO NOT FORCE IT OR START THE ENGINE, remove the transmission and reinstall the converter,

This involves removing the transmission as a unit, remove the lower access cover
on the bell housing and unbolt flywheel from engine. You will have to rotate the
engine manually with a socket and breaker bar. Drop the drive shaft from the
rear axle and slide it out. Unhook coolant lines from transmission and linkage
Support transmission with a transmission jack and make sure you have enough
clearance to lower it, unbolt bell housing. wiggle transmission slightly to
break seal between bell housing and engine, move the jack and tranny back about
an inch or two to disengage the pilot and pins, lower tranny onto jack .
bring it out into a good clean area and slide out the torque converter.
the seal can be pulled out with a seal puller, install new one with a seal driver
and reinstall torque converter carefully making sure it engages correctly and
does not sit proud of the bell housing. Reverse procedure. Make sure to use emergency
brake and chocking, these tranny's are dangerously heavy so be sure to use a jack.
