How to Replace a Transmission (Full DIY Guide) Top 7 Genius Ideas 3 weeks ago   28:24

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:

Chris - Wondering if you can fill transmission fluid through the shifter on any manual car? My husbands '91 Toyota Pickup is going to need a new transmission soon and I told him about this trick you show us here and I can't find anything online about it being a yes or a no. Your or anyone's help on this matter would be great! :D

Amazing video, clear and concise. You are, by far, the best car oriented DIY channel on Youtube. Man, if I lived in your area, I'd come to you for those hard to do jobs and pay you top dollar. Keep up the great work Chris.
Hey Chris! I believe I have a failing transmission but I'm not exactly sure how to diagnose what the exact problems might be. If I were to send you a video of the sounds it's making as well as other performance issues, would you be able to determine what's wrong with it? Thank you!
Normally you list all parts, what was the transmission? Where from???
It's painfully obvious how long this video took to complete (all the camera angles and few second shots, which are still equally important) and hence earned the one like I can give and ofc a sub. Thank you for your hard work.

I didn't know these transmission jacks existed, I would've definitely bought one when I didn't have a lift. I used my normal jack with a wooden plate, but it was a bit wonky.

Great work on the vid man. They take a lot of time. Thanks!
