So catching up on my updates. The past 2-3 weeks have been dedicated to the integra, so stay tuned for lots of recent posts.
So I've been trying to get Oji-san healthy again and I noticed he's having a hard time controlling himself and has a few leaks.
I decided to replace the transmission axle seal and shifter rod seal before replacing the transmission fluid.
Started with draining the old fluid. The fluid was much more cleaner than expected and I had a good amount left.
Magically took off the axle and old seal and getting ready to put in the new one.
I hit around the edge of the new seal until is was flush with the transmission housing. You don't want to hit it deeper in.
Comparison of both transmission axle seals. The left seal is the passenger side and the right one is the driver side.
The final and third seal to the transmission is the shifter rod seal. It's a major pain to remove.
Got everything removed and started knocking in the new one with a large socket. Not much space to move under the car.
If you didn't know you can replace the fluid of your transmission from the top. You just remove that little rubber cap and pour inside.
With the funnel in place, I'm just watching the drain plug until fluid starts coming out. This is a lot easier than having to pump in the oil manually from below.
