Fuck that whole town needs changing. What a dump.

Sorry, didn't look at what forum this was in first. :lol:
lol... no noob bashing allowed in here.

OP. If your transmission is broken, just have someone replace the transmission or (if possible) the parts that are causing the problem. No need to replace anything that isn't broken (if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?)

You might try going to your regional forum to see if anyone's willing to help you out. Otherwise, a transmission repair shop would be your best bet. These are complicated components and if you need to ask "can I do it myself?" then the answer is probably "no." At least not without the right tools, space, knowledge and time. Sometimes it's cheaper to have someone do the work for you. Just stay away from dealerships. Go to a business that specializes in transmission service, if possible. Good luck.

still doing it

. just waiting till all my classes are over.. i might get a friend to help out..
it seems so much easier then your making it, i've been researching.
i might go either rent or buy a trany jack so my life would be easier...
then put a jack under the engine and the trany jack under the trany of course, to drop it from the bottom,
disconnect all the wires, plugs and sensors and mark where they go.. prolly going to have to take out the battery and air intake and all the happy shit.. it seems that its healed with 2 mounts one from the back and one from the front and i think there is a third one holding it from the top drivers side.. ill find out when i start digging.. ohh. and drain the fluid so i can pull out the axle with out a mess.. some bolts on the motor.. maybe some linkage and brackets..idk ..
anyone have anything to add?

and plz dont tell me i cant do it, just tell me what should be done and ill decide if i can do it or not.. thanks

Go for it, worst that could happen (besides being hurt) is you break something like the engine block or have to get it towed to a shop to finish up. Its not that hard to do, just take your time and be careful.

I have a 2002 2.4 with 180,000 miles.

I am currently in the process of replacing my transmission. I have searched the site for a photo how-to and have been unable to find one. It would be nice if someone could point me to a good how-to before I pull it apart.
