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,
IMPORTANT NOTE:
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.

I have a leaking hose on 1989 chrysler new yorker 3.0 v6, coming from the transmission one goes to the ac grill the other back around, does anyone know what those hoses are the lower radiator hose connects...


Those are the transmission fluid cooler lines-one is the pressure line, other is the return line-back into the transmission. Often the cooling reservoir is built into the radiator. Apparently yours has a separate cooler in front of the radiator. It would be that and not the a/c grill.
Automatic transmissions generate a lot of heat. Without a way to cool the transmission fluid, the fluid could get burned-it will look blackened, and is very bad for transmissions. Check your transmission fluid and add if necessary. Stop the leak-it may just be a loose fitting, or a broken line or hose.

What tranmission fluid do I Use for a 1987 Chysler New Yorke?


It should say right on the dipstick. I believe that year was still dexron/mercon. You would be fine using chrysler ATF+4 as it has superseded all previous Chrysler specs for trans fluid. Make sure you checke the fluid when the transmissions up to temp, on a level surface, engine running, and run through all the gears with foot on the brake right before checking the fluid level.

Transmission fluid change


More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!
