Would anyone have step by step instructions on how to replace front transmission seal on a 2001 Taurus? I have a leak comming from the fly wheel cover and pretty sure it is the front seal.

The easiest way involves dropping the subframe, engine and Transmission as a unit out of the car then separating the transmission and engine just so you can get to the seal. That being said, how bad of a leak are we talking about here?

Check to be sure the tranny vent on the top of the tranny isnt plugged before you pull the tranny.

I agree. I used a brake bleeder to check mine. Remove dipstick and vent cap, connect the hose to the vent, when you draw vacuum you should hear air gurgling in the fill tube.
