Without fluid an automatic transmission will never work. Just hope that you haven't destroyed the clutches by attempting to run the transmission with low fluid levels. The drive shaft should pull out of the transmission after removing the 4 bolts from the differential. you should be able to see the rear seal after the drive-shaft is removed. Most REAR seals can be pried out and carefully replaced without too much difficulty or experience, but be careful to not bend, nick or otherwise damage the new seal as you press it into position. You may need to tap the new seal with a hammer and some kind of device that puts pressure on the entire seal to press it in evenly. If it works, (doesn't leak and the clutches still function) you're in luck, but I'd change the fluid and filter as soon as possible. If it doesn't work, you get to buy a new truck or a new transmission.

I was not aware that headgaskets were repairable. I have always replaced them with new gaskets. If you mean who replaces headgaskets, then that would be an engine mechanic.

Yes, and mechanic can change your fluid.

The seal should run about 10 dollars or less. The mechanic shouldn't charge more than 40 dollars or so. It is a pretty easy job. Buy the seal, remove the driveshaft, knock the seal out, replace it with the new one and reinstall the driveshaft. Piece of cake. good luck.

The mechanic told me the the auto's transmission had been overworked.

Probably a bad driveshaft. Have it inspected at by a mechanic. Sounds like you need to check your CV joints. To my knowledge a front wheel drive vehicle does not have a driveshaft.

The filter is in the transmission pan. Let a reputable mechanic do a tranny flush the proper way.

Transmission repair is a kind of auto-work that is performed to repair the transmissions in motor vehicles. The transmission is the part of a vehicle that transfers electrical energy from the vehicle’s engine and adapts it for use by the vehicle’s wheels. Typical kinds of transmissions include automatic and manual transmissions. Automatic transmissions are the most common kind in North America. An automatic transmission has the ability to automatically select its own gear ratio unlike a manual transmission. Like many things in a vehicle, the parts of a transmission can become worn out or damaged. At this point, a transmission repair will have to be performed by a qualified transmission mechanic. First, the transmission mechanic will need to test the transmission. This is usually performed by the mechanic taking the vehicle for a test ride. This ride will help him or her diagnose the problem. During the ride, the mechanic will observe any sounds, movements, or performance issues that are tell tale signs of what could be wrong with the transmission. If problems are found, the car will need to driven into a garage and raised to an elevated level using hoists. The mechanic will then use a number of different tools to remove the transmission from the vehicle. The transmission will then be taken apart. Any worn out or broken parts that are found will be discarded and then replaced. After working parts are installed into the transmission, a number of different adjustments will be made to improve the transmission’s performance. This may include adjusting certain transmission bands, gears, or pumps using a number of different wrenches. After these adjustments have been made, the transmission will be reinstalled into the elevated vehicle. The mechanic will then fill the transmission with new transmission fluid. The mechanic will also make a number of adjustments to different linkages. The final step of transmission repair is a second test drive. Again, the mechanic will drive the vehicle and pay close attention to any sounds, movements, or other signs that will tell him or her if the transmission repair solved the problem. If everything seems fine, the vehicle will be returned to its owner.

Transmission perhaps? __________ Sounds like the transmission needs work. It is a serious problem. Consult a local mechanic.

It may not have one. For example, The 08 AWD Yaris has a closed transmission system. You will have to take it to a certified mechanic and have him check it for you.

To stop a standard transmission from grinding into third gear, check the level of the transmission fluid. If the noise continues, consult a mechanic.

It may mean your transmission is damaged, and is applying too much torque. You may have lost fluid through a crack in the transmission. A qualified transmission mechanic can determine if the transmission needs to be repaired or replaced.
