Transmission fluid leaking from bell housing when in gear.


If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.

Find the exact location of your leak to determine the cost for repairs. If centered between the trans and engine the trans has to be removed. If the pan is leaking just the pan has to be removed

1998 ford expedition 4.6 engine without tow package...overheating


If you're running it without a thermostat it's clear there isn't enough/any coolant circulating through the block. When the motor is running are the hoses off the radiator soft and flexible or stiff. If they're soft there's no coolant flowing through them. Chances are the radiator core is bad or there is a crack in it somewhere. Have it removed and tested.

My transmission is leaking fluid. was told that this model a 1996


I would lean to a simple transmission leak inspect your transmission housing for leak when vehicle is in the air safely on jack stands and wheels off the ground and rear wheels chucked.... safety first! start by visually inspecting the transmission housing for noticable links then if none can be seen or theres soo much fluid you cant tell where its coming from clean the area with degreaser and then reinspect after cars been running and shifted through a few gears this can be doen while vehicle is still in air as long as its done safely! locate the leak and replace parts as needed could be from pan gasket or differential seals or from speed cable from top, the torque converter or even can leak from fill spout but not likely after you locate it replace part from local parts store or dealer or just have it done proffessionally but most selas can be replaced by knowledgable do it yourselfer! good luck and dont forget your rating!

CV Axle removal and installation


The axle should be able to be removed by using a flat ended pry bar tool with a dull flat end. Or possibly a very large flat screw driver. Put the pry bar between the axle and transmission. With light pressure, the axle should pop out of the transmission. The axle just snaps into the transmission. There should be no need or cause to damage the seal because the seal is inset into the transmission. Just watch what you are doing. As far as replacing the seal, I do not know. I have not had to do that yet, and I have replaced both sides with new boots more than once.
