Re: Auto Trans Leak - Front Pump Seal?
first of all, make sure its not over fille dor overheating and foaming out, since the trannys vent is right there also.
if it doesnend up being the front pump sela or bushing, you can do it yourself, or its cheap to have a shop do once the trans is removed.
you dont need to remove the pump from teh tranny, only the torque converter.
the seal and bushing are the parts of the pump that go around the nozzle of the converter.
when you pull your converter make sure the nozzle is smooth and doestn have any burs or irregular spots on it.
also, lube the nopzzle up when re installing.
otherwise its like any other seal removal.
the bushing is a bit harder to get out, but it can be removed with a puller, or pry tool.
