    Transmission removal, replacement, and installation. Learn how to remove a transmission so you can replace your clutch or flywheel, or so you can rebuild your transmission and install a new one in your car or truck.
    In this video I show you the 10 simple steps on how to replace a transmission. I am doing this on a rear wheel drive 98 Mustang but the process is very similar on other rear wheel drive, front wheel drive, and even automatic cars and trucks. Each detailed step will allow you to learn how to remove a transmission yourself so you can replace a clutch, flywheel, rear main seal, throw out bearing, pilot bearing, or just swap transmissions.

To answer the most common questions in the comments section: 1.) Quality videos like this take a lot of time to produce. This and the next took me over 300hrs. 2.) Follow me on Instagram "ChrisFixit" for daily updates and tips and tricks. 3.) The exhaust on the car is the performance exhaust, just used on the track. 4.) The speedometer is fine... it spun all the way around at the last drift event and I havent had a chance to take the gauge cluster out and push it back to the other side of the peg. 5.) The other red Mustang is from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-exs1iMLFU

Great video ChrisFix!! The details were on point, and the tips were great! I love watching you do this stuff. I can't wait to get a car and use all these incredibly useful tips and tricks, and put my immense knowledge (Thanks to you) to work! Great editing skills by the way. I love your cut scenes and how, like, you combine two shots during some transitions. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to every future video. Question: So you said that for the first 500 miles, you want to easily, and not harshly break in to the new transmission. Does this mean you won't be drifting for a while? Cuz I can't imagine the stress you'd put on the tranny doing that right after a job like this.

Hey chrisfix, I really want to convert my 1990 c1500 truck from auto to manual trans. I know the nv3500 was put in the manual model of my truck but I was more wondering what it would entail to swap it to a manual trans. I would love a video or something explaining what it would entail as far as electronics

Chris thanks for the top notch professional videos. As I write this more than 1.6 mil people viewed this video. All most none of us watch because we plan on changing a transmission. We watch because it entertains us. Do us all a favor and some humorous outtakes. It would be incredibly funny to see you trying over and over to get a shot or see you strip a bolt head while struggling to break the sucker loose.

I have a question so if your engine is at its dead line and it's life span is over like say 600,000 miles and the engine goes out could you take the engine out of the car or truck and take the whole thing apart cleaning up really good and replace broken or damaged parts and put it back together could that restore the engine?

I watch your videos all the time and I appreciate your advice to the car owners. I have a 1990 Lincoln Town Car which only has 66K miles. I paid extra attention after watching your video and just did the transmission fluid change with Mobile 1 two days ago. The car was shifting late and hitting the second gear hard after the fluid change. Sometimes it just dies in an intersection. I went to a transmission shop and they told me a lot of fluid nowadays have detergent which means it will take off the dirt in the transmission. But the issue was as detergent clean off the dirt it gonna mess up the gears because those dirt has been sit on the surface of the gears for too long. It just like you take off a piece of paper that has been sticked on a wall for 29 years, once you take the paper off you will also take off the wall paint. I didn't have any issues with my old Lincoln before I changed the fluid. I wish I have never done that because it cost me $1,700 to rebuild the entire transmission. My suggestion would be go visit a transmission shop before the fluid change. The people in the shop will tell you whether to change or flush the fluid by looking at the fluid quality in the pan and sometimes it is better to NOT do a change or flush. Do NOT trust whatever the oil change stores tell you. Each car is different, but when you go to an oil change store they will only say the fluid they have will work the best to your car no matter what car you have or what year is it. KNOW YOUR TRANSMISSION BEFORE YOU DO THE SERVICE. TRANSMISSION IS VERY VULNERABLE

Hey Chris. I have one or two questions want ask! Firstly , after 3 years driving my dad mpv , the car gearbox start screaming quite loud when braking or going down and continue up hill. This happen about 4 month after change the gearbox oil. Second, the gear shifting now quite slow when it is on the 1st and 2nd gear. I kinda have to totally floor it to change the gear. Should i be worried about this. My car is an automatic 1.6L , 4 speed gear box. You can search 'PROTON EXORA CAMPRO CPS' to know more about my car. Please anyone reply and give and advice for me !! Should i be worried !

I replaced in total two transmissions also on jackstands, one was a rear mounted transaxle on Porsche 944 (2 or 3 times total), the other was a rear wheel drive Volvo 960 with an automatic transmission (just one time), very similar to this Mustang, only thing was those annoying bolts holding the torque converter, you had to remove them through some difficult to reach hole somewhere from the front. But I still enjoyed watching this video somehow. You are very detailed, use good camera angles and are thorough. Keep up the good work! You surely deserve the current 4.5m subscribers :)
