I do believe that they have went away from that again though. Hmmm makes you wonder...
I dunno where the filter is exactly on my ford contour but damn didn't know I had to run the car when the plug is out............can that hurt the tranny in any way?
The imperative thing here is to run it short...just enough that the fluid is not coming out solidly anymore and then shut off.

And hello GAMEOVER the ASE certicication I did over 2 evenings only because it was something else to put on a resume. The ASE cert is not legal here in Canada to repair cars, you have to do the complete apprenticeship program (which I did from 96-00) which is 9000 hrs (4 1/2 years) with schooling and a government exam. I put the ASE under my name because it is what is understood in the U.*.

Cheers
hey bud i was giving you props
i will remember that next time NOT TO

to both of you..don't even start...i didn't even know we had a new "gearhead" let alone one with only 100 something posts..so welcome...

Killer it won't hurt your car for a short period of time..Your transmission isn't really "in use" while in park and i guess it'* safe to say that weird noise you're hearing is probably the torn boot...

oo, stop leak. That stuff should only be used as a last resort to extend the life a junk car for a few hundred or thousand km.

Say you've got a leak, but a blown head gasket that you don't know about. You put in the stop leak, and wow, it gets through the blown gasket and into your cooling system. It then GUMS EVERYTHING up hardcore. Bye bye waterpump. And you can't forget about all the other junk that'* all over the system, in the hoses, in the head, everywhere.
