If you get the FelPro kit and pull it up on ramps for her, an 8 year old girl could do it.

$400! I'm in the wrong buisness. I did my wifes '96 last summer. Not a bad job at all. If your willing to pay $400, I'll do it for $300 and still won't be able to look you in the face when I take your money.

LOL... A friend of mine made a remark one day when we let the dealership all over an O-Ring for a fuel rail on a 3.1 .. The O-Ring was 7.49...

I told him that was a rip off...

He said, He was held up and they didn't even have a gun...

Some how I just thought that fit in here...

Got the 95 SSEi, just bought it. The drip pan was a soaked pan, engine was 150K of grime, tranny and oil pan soaked. Nothing really dripping on the floor though.

Clean it up, put it up on ramps...spray with cleaner throughly and rinse it down...look for leaks....don't trust old wind blown fluid to tell you where your leaks are coming from.

I went from thinking tranny hoses, tranny pan and oil pan needed doing to looks like rear main might be seeping very very little. $5 or less of cleaner can save big money in "possible repairs". And you'll feel confident about what'* going on.

Drip pan cleaned also still hangs on wall a week later while I monitor any seeps or leaks that aren't there anymore.

rear seal is a big job considering you have to drop the tranny

Said maybe...it'* so little that after about 300 miles I can barely see any seepage...might be a pan. Too little to tell.

Where can I find in Chiltons where it mentions the rear seal?

Oh yea, I put new cardboard under my car since Monday, and not a drop of oil is to be seen. WIll check level after 3 weeks to see if I loose a quart again. I have a feeling it may be a one time thing.

Ya no **** the ford 3.8 sucks. Not to mention the AX4N transmisson, the AX4S (AXOD-E) transmission, any 4.6 liter engine, and every lincoln air suspension ever made!

Alec...you don't like FBI'*? Worth a mention is their superior wire harnesses wherein some genius decided a wire can not be longer than 8 inches in length before the next connector is put in line.

My friend has been dealing with a handfull of those 4.6'* lately... They all seem to be developing a knock...

One replacement was a reman from autozone... It ran good when he got all back into the car, started on the first try... But I don't really want one...
