1991 Eagle Talon Repair Question
Transmission is leaving from inside the bell housing, Just put a J/Y transmission in it last week.
what was original problem in the first place?
not sure. i bought it needing a transmission. the guy i bought it from said he had the transmission flushed and serviced and 2 months later he got in it in the morning put it in gear and it didn't go anywhere. since i put the j/y transmission in it actually drives perfect except for the fluid pouring out from inside the bell housing when started. it just spins out and gets all over the bottom of the car. its obvious that its coming from inside the housing. I am at a loss and desperate. the car calls for an F4A22 on the Dsm sticker. there are no numbers on the tranny its self anymore. ive used these two links for info. http://www.roadkillcustoms.com/hot-rods-rat-rods/Transmission-Cross-Reference-Database.asp?Transmission=F4A22-2 and http://atdsm.com/pdf/atoh2.pdf
trans came with TC or you used the old 1?
last week i put the TC that came with the j/y transmission tonight when i changed the seal i put the original TC back in. same result despite th e change of TC and 2 new seals
done any comparisons with old trans?
Pertaining to what exactly? I did a visual inspection, all bolt patterns are the same, electrical connectors. pans size and shape. the only thing i didn't do and know am unable to was measure the transfer shaft to see if there was a difference.. other than that they looked identical and matched up perfect upon install with NO mods
possibly new trans has defect? soft plug missing? bad clearnces?
thinking the same thing. looking to just trade it in tomorrow. it was hard enough finding a transmission for that car as it was.
